GameTote Moose, Elk and Deer Cart  


Search & Rescue Handles – Very early it was discovered that the basic “Stokes Litter” fit almost perfectly inside the GameTote Frame. All we had to do was make a pair of longer handles and the GameTote was good to go as a search & rescue vehicle. Several agencies have purchased the GameTote with both sets of handles as a combination big game retrieval cart and a search & rescue vehicle. Not only is the GameTote less expensive than a typical S & R device, it is stronger, has greater mobility and the added advantage of a powerful motorcycle brake. The price for search and rescue vehicle is $550. If you wish to have both a game cart and search and rescue vehicle add $80. to the regular price of $525.
The following article describing the GameTote and it’s use for Search and Rescue appeared in the Outdoors section of the Capital Press Weekly.
GameTote cart makes light work of heavy operation
Height Adaptors – Heavy loads going up or downhill can be quite a strain, especially if the game cart is not a particularly good fit. The good news is that the GameTote now has 5 height settings from 34 ½:” to 36 ½” – that is from the ground to the tops of level handles. This should accommodate most situations.
But should you feel the need to refine this, or adapt for other heights, we also offer height adaptors in 2 sizes. The one shown at the right has a 2½ inch offset and will place your hands either 2½ inches above or 2½ inches below the present handle level (assuming that you maintain the same height on the other end of the GameTote). You could also, by tilting the GameTote, use half of this, or 1¼ inches on each end, or any combination totaling 2½ inches. The smaller size height adaptor has a 1½ inch offset, or again, any combination totaling 1½ inches.
  GameTote Cart Height Adapters
These are inserted into the GameTote handles (up or down) and held with a pin. With the various up or down combinations thus available and the ability to switch ends with your partner, you should be able to achieve a more comfortable fit.
When you purchase the height adaptors with your Complete GameTote the holes will already be drilled for you and the price is $50.00. Otherwise, the price is $30.00 and you must drill the 3/8” holes for the pin to be inserted. If this is centered and drilled properly you will be able to place the adaptor either up or down. If you don’t get this quite right you can re-drill it when reversed so that the pin can still be inserted.
We suggest that you use only one pair of these adaptors and that you place them on the “front” or end without the brake handles. We do not recommend using them on the back. If you do you must move the brake handle (lever) to the adaptor. Otherwise you will not be able to operate the brake without first moving your hand and thereby inviting a serious loss of control, either because of the brakes being applied too late or not at all (should your hand miss the brake handle), or because you lose load balance while you are hanging on with only one hand.
GameTote Cart Cargo liner
Cargo Liner – Several have indicated the need for a GameTote cargo liner for carrying boned or quartered game, hunting camp gear and many other items that would be lost through the cracks without it. The solid liner shown above is made of very strong ballistic nylon, attached to the frame with Velcro, and should fill the bill. Price is $100.
GameTote Cart Webbing liner
Webbing Liner – A less expensive alternative is the webbing liner shown above. This uses heavy 1 ½ inch and 2 inch polypropolene webbing interwoven between the ribs and handles. These should keep anything bigger than 3 – 4 inches from falling through. First time installation time is estimated at 25 - 30 minutes. A materials list and instructions are included on the assembly page. Materials can be obtained locally.
Cargo Cover – We haven’t been able to come up with anything that would justify a price above that charged for inexpensive tarps at Harbor Freight.
Pulling Harness – We envision a harness both for the man in front and for others who might be assisting with a heavy load. Both have been suggested by owners and could indeed be quite helpful. We’ve looked at everything out there and come up with a couple designs that we think might be superior. But our primary concern is with a person attached to a harness being pulled down a hill or over a cliff. We haven’t been able to devise a reliable escape mechanism and because of the danger (and potential liability) involved must decline involvement.
