Default Hoist and basket

This will be my off season project. I hunt alone 90% of the time. So I want to fab up a hoist and basket- one piece
.

This is what I have in mind. Im thinking of using the winch on jeep to do the lifting, maybe run cable over pulleys. Then I want to use a bar with hooks and piece of chains to place around deer or hogs and lift up onto basket. Will probably use 3/16, 2in sq tube
How tall should it be? Im thinking top tube should be as wide as the basket. Do yall got anything similar? Thanks

I would look at doing this on the back of the jeep versus on the front, just seems more practical that way and less fab work needed, unless you already have a 2" receiver on the front.

Yes I already have a 2 rec on the front of jeep that I put when I built my bumper. But is there an arm to pole ratio for lifting? Im thinking that if I have a 2ft arm span then the upright pole cant be 1ft.
Thanks

How much do you charge to draft up schematics ?

A friend of mine build one years ago that was vertical that went in the rec on the back of his Jeep. Had a boat winch he could crank them up by the horns and haul to camp. Could be used for skinning also.

Your drawing sucks but I like your idea !

I've actually thought about a variation of that myself. I want the lift to come off the basket though. The one thing I'm concerned with is the leverage of picking up a load might put on the tubing that goes in the reciever.

Big hogs are hard for an old fart to load. Ain't no handles on them !

Good idea. But I suggest a rack on the front with a fold out ramp on the side.
As far as handles on hogs, use a very short rope with a handle to tie around the upper jaw to drag. With the hair.

It depends on how detail you want it. Charge more for color. Oh and by appointment only, I'm very busy!

What would be the full added length from the bumper? Guessing 3 feet? It would work great on level roads but I would worry about clearance if you have any creek bottoms or big inclines.
