Another .280 Remington story.
Well, not really, by that I mean I took along a 2x4” 7 feet long on which I put and eye bolt at one end. My hunting buddy Dave’s big Dodge van had a ladder on the right side back door and a spare tire bracket on the left rear door. I had tested and found that I could shove the 2x4 down in behind the spare tire bracket and behind the ladder where it poked out and away from the van on at a sharp angle and that's where I connected my block and tackle. Whalla! My make shift portable tree.
That allowed us both to field dress our animals comfortably standing up while not having to bend over and do the job in the dirt. Not only that, but after we’d gotten the skin off and entrails out etc. we could leave the carcass hang out there with a cheese cloth on it swinging in the breeze as we drove slowly back to our campsite thereby cooling the meat faster than having it lay on the floor of the van on a sheet of plastic.
And that is the story of my taking along my own tree...............Bazzaloo.
