Puppy from last night. Her look was something along the lines of "really, another beam on the rocks. Sure you're not an alchy?"

Reminds me of my pup when she was little. Cute little buggers at that age

woodrow I saw the tool box, but you should have at least 4 or 5 things laying on the bench in a messy pile so that you can't find them in the draw they are supposed to be in when needed.

Cleaning table? I thought that was the dining room table or the kitchen pull out cutting board? Well at least that is status quo at the parents house. Fish filleted in kitchen so you can throw them right in the sink, deer quarters are brought into the table. I guess birds are breasted, etc outside and then right to the kitchen sink. Just wish my wife understood that concept.

I like the idea of hanging the decoys/bags from hooks. We have always just thrown them on the floor of a shed, so far no mice but boy if we could rig them up and hang em from some rafters in the poll shed we'd be sitting even better.

Texas Rig your deeks and hang them from hooks...That way you can pick and choose what you want to hunt over. Kind of like a mixed bag- Grab Bag. Get two or three- 12 slotted bags... Then when you roll out you only bring the deeks you're going to use in the boat or your walk-in spot.

If I could I would get a small stainless steel table with a removable 3/4 inch cutting board fit to the table top and install a free standing laundry room wash tub next to it.

Something stopping you?

I'm putting a cheap laminate counter top in my shop with a 33x22 sink. I'll be cleaning fish and ducks with my rear in a chair if I want. Shop floor will stay epoxy so getting it dirty is no biggy.

I'll have a taller work bench for other stuff.

I'm out of room. Tailgate always works. That way the feathers can blow down the street to Fireman's front yard.

My counter top will be 32" high to accommodate a chair. The work bench will be higher to fit me when I stand.

Now, I wonder if the wife would be mad if I drag a deer in there to process?

You can use my chain hoist all my neighbors despise me for.

Mnjonboat....
If you hunt deer I highly recommend a 1k chain hoist backed my a steal plate in the rafters

Solid idea on the hoist.

When I get to move north I do have a stainless counter top with sink waiting behind a shed that I will put into the laundry room so I have a nice place to clean stuff up.

I ended up getting a 1 ton chain hoist instead of a simple pully system because 2 falls back and the first year in our new house I was trying to hoist up a dandy 8pt shot locally around one. Well I couldn't get him more than three feet off the ground.

So....

I tied the hoist rope to the wheeler and pulled it out to the driveway.

Buck went right up.

Perfect. Or so I thought

Only down fall was I couldn't shut the garage.

Fast forward 1 hour.

I heard a large truck pull up.

Wrong. It was a school bus dropping off all the neighborhood kids


After a few screams they shuffled along. Then the concerned parents began walking by aimlessly....


I waved.... :welcome:

We had only been in the house for about a month.

My goal is to get a stainless steel door off of a freezer and then put hinges on it and legs that fold under. Hinge the door to the wall and hook to keep it up and out of the way when needed unhook swing out legs and there you have a stainless table to clean game on

Woodrow that's hilarious.

I just clean birds in the driveway so the feathers can blow away, and the deer either get cut up at the farm up north or in my parents fenced back yard

That is funny woodrow! I guess up north when we get our deer we just lift them up towards the garage rafters....only an 8' celing and let the nose barely clear the floor. Dad has been known to just hang them from the front of the tractor and gut/skin them where they were shot.

When it comes to birds down south here, luckily 2 of the neighbors are big hunters so they don't seem to mind me breasting out a goose or duck since they process deer in their garage. Only downfall is having to take a drive in the country to get rid of carcasses.

The Hoist is a great idea! I've never deer hunted but I'm sure I will someday.

I'm all moved in and starting to get things organized in the garage. I need to get going on shelves and a workbench asap.....I'll probably do the workbench first because I want to see how the jon boat will fit and where I'm going to need room to work/walk around it.

thanks again for all the ideas guys, hopefully I have some cool pics to post before early goose season :grooving:

I use a pully system and tie to my boat trailer because i dont park my boat outside. And then use the wifes side and that really pisses her off especially when i do a tranny swap and it takes 2 days. And she has to park outside lol
