Thought I would post this as the concept might come in handy for someone in the future. It features a lift system we used to take moose legs from a canoe up to a high bank.
It is a short movie I put together of my daughter moose hunt and some fun footage of the contraption below in action.
Well getting a moose from bank to boat has always been looked at by me as an opportunity to well lets say, be innovative. Especially when it involves high banks, and driftwood laden beaches. This time it was a new twist. Canoe to bank. We landed the canoe at our shortest packing distance at a high bank. I remembered last year getting Jenna's monster up the bank with Garrity, Jenna and myself with a bad back. I was thinking. It was time to get creative. I had tree climbers so I put them to use. Cutting a couple of trees and building an a frame we put some rope, a pully, and my tree climbers to work. I attached a pully about 20 feet up in a tree. Put a loop in the end of the rope and put my foot into it. I went down and the moose went up.
The first hoist was rather interesting but it got smoother from there. As you will see from the video. Helps to have a patient partner that also was wanting to keep his back happy also.
