    I just built a new skinning rack. Just your basic 4x4 posts with a wrench on it. Pouring a slab around it when i get some time. I am wanting to build a table that is attached to one of the post for cleaning meat on. Going to do that when i get time as well. What are all of yalls skinning rack set ups??? Lets see em!!

    If i remeber this weekend i will send a picture of the set up me amd my buddies got. It is an A-frame made out of 4 1/2" pipe with an I-beam on top for the chain hoist to slide on. It is overkill but I guarantee you could hoist a diesel engine out a tractor with no problem.

    I live in the middle if town, I have a 4x4 running across the inside if my garage. Keeps me out if the weather and keeps the neighbors from seeing the deer get cut up.

    My dad is a skilled self taught fabricator. He is also known for "overengineering" This definitely would be similar to what my dad would build for a meat pole. Love it.

    Haha yeah he actually had a fab shop for a while before career changing. He would build things for the company I work at and it would always be over built, but it would never break.

    Lot of time the farm auctions will have an old wagon hoist back in the timber or where ever. A frame type legs on both sides with a double angle iron cross member at the top. Usually about 10" tall. Can pick the up for little or nothing and work great for hanging deer. Check out the U-Tube video on skinning a deer using a golf ball. Sounds crazy I know but it works. Help the neighbors skin several last fall but hung them off a loader on a big tractor. Pulled the hide off with a side by side.

    I have actually seen Steve Rinella do that with the golf ball looks easy and efficient

    Ours is decades old but does the job well. These are my three sons and my brother-in-law with their deer this last season.[​IMG]
