Default Whats the best deer cleaning station?

So I've always used a tree limb and rope to hang and clean my deer but its sometimes hard to lift the deer up and takes 2 people to do it. So, I'm looking to build my own station and I'm looking for some ideas. What do yall use? Here's a pic of what I use.

Well, a double pulley block and tackle works great, only need 1 person to hoist it then. So long as it's not a puny one.
A friend built him one that slide into his reciever, w/a boat winch and cable. Hook the spreader up, start cranking the winch until the deer is at the desired heighth. He had it sectioned & pinned, which made it collapsible and easy for storaging.
He got the idea after seeing one for sale while surfing the net.
I personally back up under a tree limb, toss the rope over the limb, put spreader on hind legs, take tag end around tree. Pull rope, lift deer off truck bed, walk around tree couple of times, and tie it off. Then drive out from under the deer.
Just whatever works. Done the golf ball thing too. I don't do that anymore. Sucks when the rope breaks.

Depends on ifin you are looking fer cheap or elaborate....I have a boat winch on the side of my tractor/cleaning shed. Then I have I bolts w/ small pulleys going up the truss to the peak. Then I have my ADJUSTABLE gabriel....I would get an adjustable since its hard to clean a 40 lb'r on a standard 1....

I've got a pulley and chain over one of the ceiling beams in my steel barn, with a rope that ties to my tractor. Drag the deer under the pulley, hook him up and back the tractor up. We added a scale a few years ago, because our Propoerty owner requires us to include a weight on our harvest report.

Sportsman's Guide sells a tripod cleaning station for $89, it is portable and can also be used as a feeder hard point... or you can use a receiver hitch hoist as I do.

man if you can drive up to that tree, throw a tow strap over that limb, hook the deer up, then pull the truck forward a few feet. i had some pics on here a while back of a doe a shot. not sure if they're still around or not. if you have tow hooks on the front it's pretty clutch because then you can use your headlights while you listen to the radio, drink a coke and pull the drawers off your deer!
