Default The Meat Wagon

Cruising through the neighborhood the other day and I find a pair of wheelchair wheels at a garage sale...for $1. I knew exactly what to do with them!

To the hardware store to buy some 4.5" long 3/8" bolt, some washer, and nylon locking nuts, two drill holes, and I'm in business.

Now I can easily roll my ladder stand into the woods and when I have a deer down, just throw it on the ladder and it doubles as a game carrier.

Thats a great idea! I would paint the wheels to get rid of the chrome look but other than that you are good to go. A little low to the ground as well, but do able.

It's low to the ground because I didn't add the other ladder sections, and I usually don't hunt from my backyard

I have burlap connected to the shooting rail so when I lower the rail the burlap covers the wheels. I may paint them just for shoots and giggles though.

Could easily leave the wheels hidden on the ground, or keep them in the truck.

Very ingenious! I hunt thick areas where you would never be able to get that to, so I have to use a climber.

Here's what the meat wagon looks like loaded down with 3 deer. While it was capable, it sure was heavy!
