We have a large camp and some old guys who have been around about 70 years.
We have gotten a half dozen elk and a dozen deer all out whole.

We use to use a truck bed untiliy trailer, we would lay a ladder up to the tailgate and use a come along to pull it up the ladder, skinning as it went. Pulling it onto a clean tarp ready for the butcher.

We also used a ladder between two trucks ,skinning on the ladder than into a truck.

Now we have a drop ramp trailer. We have got them out on game carts and wagons.
Atv and trucks up old skid roads.

We carry come along ,block and tackle as standard equipment.
