Any Hunters Out There in Jeep Land?

Hey, with deer season opening up down here in two weeks I have a couple of questions that seem too tough for the intellectuals around here to help with.

Gun Rack Problem: Besides a floor mounted rack placed behind and in the middle of the two front seats or a military style forward floor door mount, or the seat mounted gun rack; has anyone every heard of a roll-bar strap type system?

Where in the heck are we going to put the deer when we kill them? I don’t have a tow hitch for one of those rack things. My suggestion was to mount to the hood

Oh… and recently I have figured out my issue on the driver’s side being higher than the passenger’s side problem. The factory welded my shock mount/ coil spring housing higher on the passenger side an lower on drivers side. Anyone have any suggestions for a fix for this besides welding?

Maybe if I ever figure out how to take pics an post them on here I can show you guys.

I know I saw something about a rack that fits by the backseat somewhere and another that fits above the visors but IDK I would have to look further into it to see if I could find it. and as far as where to put the deer I would just stick with the hood idea and maybe a tarp? otherwise I would invest in a tow package and a little utility trailer.

My old scout master had a set of racks the would allow a rifle mounted to each side of his roll bar. That was 20 years ago.have no idea where you'd get em today.
I' just put the rifle in it's case and set in the back seat till I get to my hunting area and start walking.

You can drape a dear across the hood if you like pissing the touchy feely types off. The better option is to dress out the deer in the field and then stick him in the back.

I just throw my gun or bow in a hard case and toss it in the back. Same thing with the deer. I really planned to have that herculiner in by now.

welcome to the forum. if you've gotta TJ it shouldnt be hard to fab up a roll bar mount. my problem is that i've gotta YJ with the older style roll bars in the back. so i cant quite figure one out yet. as far as deer placement goes. the back is going to be your best bet. mainly because you'll ruin a good bit of meat throwing it over the hood.

where you located at by the way? also, there is a continuous thread in the forums entitled "hunter's only" if you dont mind, post hunting stuff in there from now on. mainly bc its easier for us hunter's to keep all stuff easy to find but i think there was some non-hunters on the forum that dont like talking about killing animals. so we just decided to make tht thread so everyone would know not to go in it if they dont like it. but no big deal for now bc you're new

I am in the NE corner of Arkansas; I commute from a small town to ASU University daily as the VA is sending me to school. I don't get many chances to get on the internet since school started back up with studies and all.

BTW where exactly is the hunters forum?

Nevermind sorry I found it

So on that gun rack what I have been thinking is something like the old style roll bar mount...the idea would use the same idea as Flambeau bow cases use with thier velcro except there would have to be some sort of tab as a spacer sewn in the mount strap.

We (my brother an I) hunt Shirey Bay, Rainey Break, Zone 3 out in the middle of no where,and just outside of Blackrock at a friends Grandpa's farm. The only time we don't hunt at one of those spot is the weekend following Thanksgiving when we go down to Lafayette County for the weekend. The coolest thing to me is there are alot of boar down there as well so ya never know what meat your coming home with.

Yeah, we're just waiting for the weather to cool off some more so we can get rid of the hogs on the land near Pleasant Plains. Those hogs will ruin habitat for deer. So we'll have a big barbecue when it gets colder. We got scouting camera pics of one that will be pushing 300 lbs.

well, in this region. all are "partly" domestic due to having been brought over from russia or somehwere like that at one point a long time ago. but for the most part its ferel. just about as wild as it gets rounds here. it wasnt pinned and fed or anything like that. and they actually hunt with dogs. the dogs were scared of this beast they had to go back to the truck to get the rifle to shoot it with (they normally stick them witha knife)

yea. this is how it normally works. you realease your track and bay dogs they find the hog and keep him pinned down by taking turns going in and nipping at him until the people get there with the bite dog (generaly a pit bull or a pit bull mix) you let the bite dog go at the hog, he bites down and dont let go, once he's on the other dogs pile on. the hog goes crazy, most of the dogs get slung off but get right back on (normally the bite dog's jaws are too strong to be slung off and he often has to have his jaws pryed off with a pry bar of some sort) once the dogs are on. someone grabs the hog by the back legs and picks up his hind end (this lets a person control the majority of the movement) once the hog is "under control" the other people start pulling the dogs off and tyin back to keep them outta the way, then someone pulls out a good long knife and sticks the hog in the heart. dies really quick.

when tehy got to the big one, the dogs came runnin back out with the hog after it. they kept him pinned for an hr anda half while some1 went to get the gun to shoot it

Is Michael Vick a member of that gang? Seems a little too gruesome to me. I hate having hogs on the property. They do a lot of damage. But I think I'll stick to hunting them with a rifle or a bow.

I'd love to go hog hunting, but not like that.

One, the military one is a good one if you can figure out where to mount the dash clamp on all that plastic. Me, I just lay my sako on the back seat.
Two, I would never put the dear on the hood or in the jeep, blood on the paint is bad, as bad as antifreeze or brake fluid. Inside, Nope, out here in the NE we have this little deer tick that carries Lyme disease plus all the other normal ticks. I don't want any crawley critters inside. As it is spiders seem to build webs inside the TJ's after they have sat for 3 or 4 days. On the XJ the deer goes up on the safari rack, on the TJ's they go on a shelf that goes in the 2" receiver on the bumper.
I don't usually take one of the wranglers hunting, all soft tops, I usually take the XJ so I can lock it up. A good quality bumper with hitch is a good investment.

They're protected here. If you have one on your property you should call game and fish and let them deal with it.

You have photographic evidence of a black panther in north America?
That'll be worth some big bucks.

Are "black panthers" protected by law? or cougars?
If you truly see a black panther, it's most likely an escaped imported animal as there is no documented evidence of black panthers in north America that I'm aware of.
