Recently, a customer was kind enough to share photos of his successful deer hunt in which he used the Kill Shot Game Cart and the Kill Shot Game Hoist to assist. Here are those gorgeous pics, along with some of the details.
Mr. Robert Bisnett, Central California
Tell us about yourself and your hunting experience.
I am a 63 year old, somewhat disabled, archer/hunter who goes it alone. Last year, I took up hunting, got a buck and had one hell of a time with it. I had to go seek assistance for loading but was fortunate enough to have dropped it close to a road.
How did your hunt go this year?
I took another buck (this year) in the early archery season, and it was a breeze. I used the game cart to haul it out several hundred yards to the back of my truck and winched it up for field dressing. Everything worked perfect.
The only suggestion I would have is to make the instruction book for assembly of the cart legible. Thankfully, I am somewhat mechanical and easily put it together. If the handle was reversible, it would make it much easier to use for (us) taller hunters – I’m 6’6″.
How big was the deer?
The hanging weight was 155 pounds, which is on the larger side for California Black Tails. A nice 3×3 (or as you Easterners say, a six point(er).
Where were you hunting?
I was hunting on my own property in the Sonora area of the California Gold Country amongst oak trees, granite boulders and brush. It was very warm with temperatures reaching 100 in the afternoon.
How long did you wait before siting the buck and taking a shot?
I hand built (a) blind out of tree trimmings and grasses (and) was on the blind (an) hour before sunrise on the 12th day of hunting. (I) took up a firing position and remained frozen for two hours. While waiting for the buck, which I had spotted the prior day, two grey foxes walked 10 feet in front of me. I was in full camo, and they never noticed me. The buck finally appeared, and I waited it out until he was about 30 yards away and released the bolt from my crossbow. He went about 100 yards before going down from the lung shot.
You mentioned you are a solo hunter with some mobility limitations. How did you move the buck once he was down?
I have a disc issue (in addition to) having three foot surgeries this year, so the game cart was a godsend. (I) just rolled him onto it and then 200 yards to my truck. I then attached the gambrel to his front legs, hoisted him up, cleaned him out and swiveled him into the back of my truck. (The) tailgate of my F250 was easily cleared by the winch – up, around and down. As a solitary hunter, this is the only way to go.
After that, a drive to the processor with the deer’s head displayed above the tailgate. I received a lot of envious looks and honks.
Congratulations, Mr. Bisnett, on bagging a beautiful deer, and thank you for sharing your story with us!

Here is some detail on the equipment Mr. Bisnett used in the field to help transport his buck:
Moving Game and Gear
The Kill Shot Game Cart does the heavy lifting to and from the field for any type of hunt where terrain is rough and access by vehicle is limited. It is a rugged steel cart that transports white tails, muleys, bear, or any game up to 500 pounds and works well for carrying gear, too. Durable ¾” steel axles support 18½” solid rubber tires on steel rims with steel spokes, so you don’t ever have to worry about getting a flat. Weighing in at just 30 pounds, the Kill Shot Game Cart has a dull brown powder coat finish and requires no tools for assembly. Storage is easy, too, by just removing the wheels and side braces.
Dressing and Loading Your Deer
The Kill Shot Game Hoist elevates deer and other game weighing up to 500 pounds for flushing and cooling the body cavity. It can also be used to load game into the bed of your pickup truck with a 360° rotating arm that locks into four positions. It is a steel-constructed, hitch-mounted lift system for 2” Class III or Class IV receivers that raises from 81” to 95¾” high (depending of the height of the hitch) and is stabilized with a foot support that adjusts from 1/8” to 15”. Truck tailgates are still accessible with 25½” clearance. The Kill Shot Game Hoist includes a 24” wide gambrel, and comes with a 19½’ reinforced lift strap.
Discount Ramps is proud to bring to you the Kill Shot Hunting Gear Game Cart – model number GAME-CART! The Kill Shot game cart is used to haul your trophy buck out of the woods and to your vehicle without having to bust your back carrying the game. This versatile, multipurpose cart is perfect for hauling deer, tree stands, decoys, wood, other big game, and more! Carrying up to 500 pounds is a breeze with the lightweight, heavy duty design. This provides excellent weight distribution so the weight doesn’t feel like what it actually is. The deer cart is powder-coated in a brown finish to help keep it hidden and blend in with your camouflage. Discount Ramps recommends model number 60-WHLTIE-2, which is two 60″ long x 1″ wide tie downs for securing game to the cart.
This deer cart’s wheels are 18.5 inch solid rubber tires that are wrapped around brown powder coated (to match) steel spoke rims. From axle to the front, it measures 27 inches, and from the axle to the handle of the game cart is 44 inches. The rung spacing on the Kill Shot is about 9 inches; the width of the handle is 15.75 inches and the width of the front of the game cart is 19.75 inches wide. Its heavy duty 3/4th inch axle and rock hard steel construction make it easy to navigate over any level of terrain–whether it be fallen logs, uneven land or even streams–you won’t stop the Kill Shot game cart. The tires are made from solid rubber, so you never have to worry about getting a flat or putting air in them. This multipurpose game cart is ready to fold up into a compact 26 inch by 27 inch size that is a mere 8 inches in depth so you can store it easily inside your vehicle. To make the deer cart compact, just remove the wheels and side braces and it will fold up and be secured with the two buckle straps that are included with this kit. No tools are needed to assemble, as the Kill Shot Hunting Gear Game cart is easily assembled with the included wire spring pins. Included with the cart is a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
