ATTN 2DR DEER HUNTERS. Whos hauled a dead deer in their 2dr?

Im an avid hunter, native american, and usually have a beater truck i can drive to my hunting property to go out hunting and keep the miles off my JK. well for the time being i am beater-less as my dad is borrowing it up north in michigan. Who on here has hauled a dead buck in their 2dr? good experiences and bad, and what did you use as a mat to keep the carpet clean?

Getcha one of these. I use my truck for hauling deer, but would use this hitch carrier if using my Jeep. Don't think I would want the deer in the back of the Jeep.





Or you could strap him over your spare tire - <= This I would actually like to see.

Worst case scenario - take out back seat and throw some plastic drop cloth over the carpet.

good question, first take out the back seat, I have a camo tarp from harbor freight, two would be better and load up the deer. you can pull the carpet in the back too, the tarp should work but blood may find a way out on to the carpet. this is what im planning to do, if God blesses me enough to be one of the 4% in s.cali who gets one lol

Im a hunter as well and ive been thinking the same. I dont think we could squeeze anything big in the back. Ive have put some thought to the hitch carriers though. Im just worried about the exhaust fumes tainting the meat :/

I use a basket also. I have 4dr but 4dr or not I'm not sticking it inside of any vehicle I own. I'm kind of a clean freak about the insides of my vehicles and all that blood/fur, no matter how well contained, would be crossing the line for me.

Basket works great. Depending on how deep I'm going, and if I'm worried about the basket dragging, I sometimes will drop it at the trailhead and then continue driving in. If I happen to harvest one I may go back out and get it or drag the deer to the basket (using Jeep) depending on the exact situation.

Have also thought about the draping it over the spare tire to get it back out to the basket. My only worry is if it will be too much weight for the carrier, especially if there is going to be bouncing around.

O don't really think the exhaust fumes would taint the meat. The skin should protect it a bit and then there is a pretty good draft back there when you're driving

That rear rack looks ideal.

In northern Minnesota I used to quad out near my hunting position, sit and wait with my rifle, make the kill, and then hang the deer in a tree and clean it on the spot. Then I just went back and got the quad, rode back, bungied the deer to the back rack and putted back to the cabin to finish butchering it.

If you don't want to use a quad or cant afford it and the trailer to haul it around, just get a good body harness and a sled. Park the Jeep as near as you can get to your spot, kill the deer, clean it, sled it back to the jeep, and lash it to one of those rear racks.

Or you could just get a folding table and ice box, sled the deer back to the vehicle, set up the table and section the meat out and put it in the ice box and put that in the back of the Jeep.

Good luck! i got a huge 6 opening morning with my compound, luckily it was on the 6 acres at my home. Shortly after i posted this i ran the question by my brother and he suggested the very same thing about throwing a tarp down. now if only i had room to stow the back seat (usually folded up and never used as it is) i guess sacrifices will have to be made. thanks for the input guys

I'd also recommend the rear rack/carrier. I almost bought one from Harbor Freight for ~$50 on special a few weeks ago. Combine that with a Quadratec hitch and you're out $100-$150 for a clean Jeep.

Carrier.....for sure. Besides blood and what-not you also have to worry about ticks N such.

I hadn't thought of the bugs. That's even more reason to go with the rack

I think I bought mine on northerntools.com and it was only $40 or so

I hope it works for you, I bought the cheap one and its too short for my factory bumper and tires. Had to buy an extension to use it

Ewww.. bugs indeed...

Ticks and fleas.

And that last Jeep with the (elk?) wedged in the back is huge! How many people needed to lift that. I bet it weighs more than the Jeep.

*now that I think about it, the suspension should be sagging more... Photoshop?
