From my very limited experience, where possible, the gutting tends to get done back at camp or at a processing facility..
There are a number of reasons for this, but one is that the locals tend use far more of the offal that we normally throw away, including things like the stomach for tripes and also the intestines ect, along with usual things like the liver and heart ect..
Here is a picture of my winch rig for the back of my truck, I just throw it in and attach it to my D rings in the bed of my truck. I use the warn rear power lead on my back bumper to power it I also have a large portable winch on a plate for vehicles.
Here is a shot of the pulleys so you can see how easy they are to clamp on and go. I forgot to throw the old section of ladder rack I put a board on for a ramp, but to tell you the truth, anymore I just lower the tailgate and lift up on the critters head / cable so it doesn't wear a groove in the bed of the truck
how about using a winch to skin it? thats going to be my next trick. i've used the truck to pull the hide off before but in the process almost ripped the last one in half. i think the winch will give me control.

With deer sized game with my ATV (Polaris 6x6) I lay a steel pipe on the gun rack, run the front mounted winch cable backwards over the top of the pipe and down the length of the dump/tilt bed, then to the game. winch in from the rear and shut the tail gate. Works really great.
I ride mules, hunt every chance I can, and even take my husband with me!
YES i HAVE BEEN NEEDING ONE OF THESE for years but just could not come up with how to make for the weigth being pulled up the ramp tailgate. I would appreciate pictures or recomendations on how you built your game hauler.
