HUNTING: OTHER USEFUL ITEMS
When it comes to hunting coyotes, there is no limit when it comes to handy items to have along with you on a long days hunt. Like a good truck (4x4) for long treks into the back country. A choke chain in your fanny-pack allows quick use of any nearby trees to skin coyotes from. And alot more items that we'll cover at a later date.
Out here in the badlands of the Southwest, where scrub juniper and pinon pine are sometimes far and few between. There can be many an hour go by that you wish you could skin a coyote now, instead of it bouncing around and bleeding all over the back of your truck.
I'm sure I must have seen something like this, somewhere in my life. I just couldn't tell you where. It's a portable skinning tree that you can take along with you.
I had a local welder build it for me out of 2" square metal tubing. The bottom horizontal piece is cut and drilled to fit into the receiver hitch. A loop or hook added onto the top end allows you to attach a fido choke chain for temporary use, as pictured here; or, a twin leg holding skinning gambrell.
I like this rig much better than other contraptions I've seen for doing the same job. One guy I ran across sometime back, had welded a piece of 1" tubing to a thumb-screw bracket which would then attach to the headache rack on his pickup. This hitch tree is much sturdier.
