game bags?

Which ones should I get?
4 for $9.99

or
4 at $11.99 each

Obviously I'd like to spend less and get the Alaska Game Bags, but are these durable enough?

game bags?

after years of toying with different games i finally just had some game bags made for me . i used 8 to 10 oz. painters drop canvas and had some full body game bags done with draw srings at each end . i believe the deer bag is 36"x84" and the elk bag is 48"x120" .

game bags?

I've never liked the wimpy "store bought" game bags and have simply made a bunch out of both old and new flat sheets (yup the ones you use on a bed), the 100% cotton kind. It only takes a few minutes on the sewing machine and then they're washable and reuseable from year to year. I especially like that they keep the game cleaner and the flies off the meat.

Use the largest flat sheets you can find for elk. For deer double or queen size works fine.

I second what cowgal said, I went to the fabric store and bought some of the same material that cotton sheets are made of and made my own. Inexpensive and very good protection.

Last year I bought some laundry bags at walmart and they seem to work pretty good. We just washed them after using them and now they're ready for this year.

Tried and true for me for the last 40 yrs.
We use the ones that are getting a little thin on the bed and make game bags .
Don't have to be new ones . I'me cheap. Thumbs up
