Squirrel Haulers

Postby String Music » Sat Oct 20, 2018 11:36 am

I made a couple squirrel haulers out of walnut and bocote. Make a little slit in the squirrel’s foot and thread it through the stringer. I got this idea from a hardcore squirrel hunter I follow on Instagram (@natebonebusta).

Like the idea, but why not a lightweight vest (with gamebag) instead?

With the squirrel haulers, are you just holding it in your hand as you stalk their relatives?

Could come in very handy when the game bag is too small :tu:

I tried the gamebag in the past and didn’t like it. It feel kinda strange having a bunch of little warm bodies pressed against my back.

I’ve always carried them this way but have used a stick in the past. This can also be put through a belt loop with a carabiner.

Given my druthers, I'd typically prefer not to be wearing a vest with a gamebag, too,
but, for me, I like it for carrying a limit of squirrels better than not having it :D

I've lately been using my turkey vest
because it's the most comfortable thing I have with a large game bag.

Yea. I do the game bag/vest myself. After loading that 5th or 6th one I almost have to take it off to get more stuck in there.

Like your idea. So what do you do use the wood as a handle and tote them in hand?

Cool idea. I use a game vest, as well. Hand me down from my dad that has to be at least 20 yrs old.
