17kgs is not a huge amount of effort really mate, most back packs probably way about that much, and most of us could probably lift that onto our backs.
                   


Yeah, I know - I think I've got really weak - my wife says I have.
Can push a mower around okay and can still handsaw and split wood, but when it comes to lifting stuff is when I notice it - everything is heavier than it used to be.
Wouldn't think so looking at me - I still have the appearance of a superb male specimen - and I spend enough time in front of the mirror to say that with some honesty.

Maybe it's all in my head - or maybe it all turned to custard when my tits sagged.

And edit ....
Disregarding my nonsense, you're dead right there Ice, 35lb isn't that much - certainly a whole lot better than throwing a rope over a branch and hauling a whole carcass. The friction on the rope dragging over that branch must be considerable - but that's how we used to do it.
I just like to play with stuff, tried all sorts of configurations and was surprised how that extra little pulley at the bottom eased the effort - so much so I just might throw it in the bag.
I went down to a hard twist 4mm rope and that really reduced the bulk a lot.
The thing too - is rope is always handy around a camp, so that 30 feet of pulley rope can serve double purpose.






Grin Grin   and yes that small bottom pulley allows us to use our larger leg muscles rather than just pulling down the rope, mind you being a big fat bastard makes that a lot easier. bwahahaha.

Oh - I'm a staggeringly trim 65kg - been about that for the past fifty years.
The missus prefers the term 'weedy'.

The heaviest I ever got was 12 stone and never really figured that as I was about as fit as I'd ever been - did it on vegetables too, no meat.

Wonder if that says something - like, is plankton a vegetable, are whales vegetarians ?

Not saying anything - just wondering.

Oh shit, you're not a whale - are ya ?

Nah, getting close though.
I am another 50% of your weight mate (97.5kgs), have been that way for about the last 35yrs, in my fighting years I was another 25% of your current weight (81.25kgs). Grin  But I used to hunt in my slippers as well.

Bloody hell Ice - you could pop me up your bum and wouldn't know I was there.
Not only that - I finished the new frames on my pulleys, have got them right here in front of me, and they suddenly don't look too substantial, not like they did 2 minutes ago.
Shit !

I do suspect that is a bloody old photo, and probably photo shopped to hell and gone - you ain't no racing sardine like what I am - used to be.
Ha - just learned how to do that.

And no - I got no desire to be 'popped up your bum'.

Lol, nah its not that old, well within the last 7-8 yrs anyways, not photo shopped, taken just as it was, this silly bloody stag came right up to my camp, you can see my back pack or sleeping bag  reflecting in the background. Grin

Shame I wasn't there - you could have borrowed my hoist.

You're looking good mate, like your grundies too - the ones I'm wearing right now are blue with little yellow 'Spongebob's' all over them - just looked.

Wonder what the old Poacher is wearing ?

Yeah - they're all over the place when you get pointed in the right direction.
Am quite happy with mine though, cost nothing - just the rope and some time spent modifying them.
4mm polyprop rope cost $3.95 (I think) and all up it weighs 448 gms.
If I throw that extra pulley in total weight becomes 526 gms.
I actually could have made it a bit lighter if I'd thought a bit more - but didn't.
Yeah - it'll do the job.

I got some tiny little doubled triple block pulleys from sailors corner and some dyneema rope must be about 5mm they weight nothing and are rated to 150kg or something stupid. Makes a hoist that can lift a deer easy. Just wrap the rope around a stick to haul the deer up as the rope is so thin!

As for me few climbing carabiners and robust rope are quite enough for the creation of proper pulleys system for the lifting of deer or something else. Carabiners and ropes are light and useful for many reasons.
