Perfect. That's what I was thinking. Easy, cheap, useful.

Hey Mike,

I met your pops the other day. He is one deer killin' machine. Pretty cool set up you guys have.

How much does that hoist weigh?

The angle had always been biggest downfall of the one I have. During the off-season I am going to see if I can't find one of y'all to modify it for me with the angle.

Yo Grill, that lower third or so where that round plate is, is the first section. My Dad leaves that in the receiver all season long. the middle, just below the winch, prolley weighs about 15 lbs?. Then the upper 3rd (the hoist frame) is really not that heavy either. My 85 YO Pops takes it down by himself

I built mine when I had an outlet in the bed of my truck for electricity. My new truck doesn't have the same setup so I took the electric winch off and put the manual winch on.
pivots.
clears the tailgate and has a step to climb up.
. It also doubles as a fence stretcher.

I built mine the same but straight..... I use mine mainly as a skinning pole. It goes in the bed of my truck last week of Sept. and doesn't come out till mid-January. I wouldn't hunt without it no matter if I'm by myself or with an army.

I have a topper on my truck, so I use a hitch-haul to carry deer, but this would be handy in Wyo. when I hunt goats. No trees to hang and skin !

I welded the part that fits in the receiver to the bed of my lease truck. The winch part slides out and stores in the bed of the truck. The road feeder is a permanently attached accessory and is too heavy to remove if it's anywhere near full of corn.

Ok Scotty, that design right there is what I have been thinking about! Just leave the mount bolted in the corner of the bed and have a much shorter and stiffer top piece to swivel. Plus it is off to the side and that gives lots better swiveling options!

^^ I'm surprised the sheet metal of the bed holds up to the leverage a bug deer like that puts on it.

Saw this today and since it was raining I went out in my shop and built one. Took about 2 hours with the help of a 12 and 10 year old. Built it out of scraps for a total cost of 0 dollars. Made it two pieces. It has a piece of pipe running up the inside of the vertical tubing for extra support and also to swivel, the pipe is 2' shorter than the tubing so you have to stand on the tail gate to slide on the top section. I welded a washer where the two sections meet so it will swivel easier. Used thick wall for the receiver and thin wall for the rest so it's not heavy at all. Name:  image.jpg
