I agree with RichP about the ticks! Anyone tried field dressing, and storing the meat in plastic bags in a cooler on the rear racks?

A gut shot is not very desireable, more important than that is recovering your game. A gut shot animal lying in the woods unrecovered is what pisses me off.


I think caravaning your kill over your hood, on top of the roof or strapped to the back like this pic is: 1. not good for the meat and unhealthy. 2. Kind of classless and contributes to the "bubba" stereotype that the anti-hunting groups attach to us.
I agree regarding the negative stereotypes and how you transport your kill. I shot a 100lb doe last night and while driving home in my F350, was wondering how I'd get it home in my TJ so this is a great thread.

I'm sure California is among the worst places for stereo typing and why I think the way I do. In other states its not so bad. I've hunted in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. The residents of Utah are the best for being hunter friendly. When you drive through town (Richfield) you see deer hanging from the tree in their front yards. They have big signs as you come into town "WELCOME HUNTERS", "HUNTERS BALL TONIGHT" and "BIG BUCK CONTEST". I just love that.

Tucker,

I found that my rifle does fit in behind the seat and in front of the wheel well perfectly. this puts it out of prying eyes and meets the legal requirements for Mo. I believe.

I have a fairly large bow case and it sits on top of the rails on the left and right of the Hard Top just right, a little tough getting it in. this makes good storage below and above (nothing heavy) the case.

The ticks thing I dont think I would have realized until it was too late for that, good heads up.

Here we have those little buggers that carry lyme disease so it's nothing to ignore. It's even an issue when you are field dressing up here, the ticks are still abandoning ship when you start and they head for the nearest warm or carbon breathing body.

Around here you can pick up the ticks without coming in contact with the animals, just hunting at lower elevations. You learn to check your self well at the end of the day.
