This hoist lifts just about any game animal for field dressing or butchering, yet it’s compact enough to become a camping essential. Includes a 60-ft. heavy-duty, non-fraying rope. 4,000-lb. capacity. 7:1 ratio.
Cabela's 4-Wheel hoist is not for carrying in your game pocket. The pulleys are 3" in diameter. It has substantial mechanical advantage and I'm sure will lift what you need lifting but the hoist will live in your pickup not your game bag. Why the manufacture included a laid (twisted) rope is beyond me. The whole thing winds itself up and soon has you hang it up. I threw out the line almost immediately and replaced it with 9 mm static line which dramatically increased the final cost. The hooks are too big but easily replaced with 1/4" (chain) hooks. I'm confident the hoist will drag a deer into a pickup box or tighten a fence.
Works flawlessly. As others noted, the rope is polypropylene, so it isn't going to last forever, but for me that isn't a deal breaker. I used it last week to lift a medium sized doe and felt like I could have easily added another 100lbs and not had to struggle to control it. Wish I would have bought something like this years ago.
