I like the breathable cloth `sock' like game bags. If you shop around you should be able to find something affordable. I buy them locally - I'll look on line later on tonight. They are re-usable, with a bit of care. The person doing the laundry may ask "What is this?" ... but they'll get used to it. I drop the meat in and tie the end ... sometimes the knot is un-manageable, so I cut it off - and still re-use it as long as I have not cut off too much.

google search: cabelas game bags ... and ...

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/pod/standard-pod-wrapped.jsp...

I don't work for cabelas ... but that was easy. Price not too brutal. I suppose they could double as pillow cases.

Actually, for deer I like smaller game bags, but essentially either size will work.

I don't buy them. I went with my wife to a sewing store and bought some good cotton muslin and her sew them up for me. After each use I soak them in cold water to get the blood out and then wash them and hang them to dry. Can use them again and again.

I was blessed to go on a special deer hunt a couple weeks ago (great way to spend Spring Break). I got a deer down in a `hole' - right as evening set in. I was in `school clothes' (I am a teacher) - but I did grab my day pack with flashlight, gamebags, etc. - as I quick parked and gave chase to some deer I saw by the landowner's road.

Before light vanished - I laid out my game bags, bone saw, sharpener, extra knife, etc. ... donned my flashlight ... and got to work. Then as it got dark I de-meated the deer - much as in the pics. One trip out of the `hole' with my deer (meat and a few bones only) - saving me huge misery of somehow trying to carry a `gutted' deer up over logs, mud, brush, snow, etc.

It works.

Gang,

I am thinking of making a 30 minute video of the process. Maybe by me and the guy I learned it from. (Note: two guys working on a deer - takes less than 30 minutes.) Do you think it would sell??? And where/how should I sell it?
