Game straps should do one thing well hold game and be out of the way the rest of the time. The Game Hog fills both of these requirements.
I purchased the Game Hog as a complement to Avery's Power Belt neoprene shell carrier. This belt makes a great bandolier, and has convenient zippered pockets for calls, chokes, truck keys and other odds and ends. These zippered pockets are not quite long enough to hold a wire-style game carrier, which has been my preferred method of carrying and hanging ducks and geese.
A friend showed me how the Game Hog folds to fit into one of the zippered compartments. This feature instantly sold me. After using it on a successful big-marsh mallard hunt, I was equally impressed with the eight-loop carrier's capacity for ducks.
The eight stainless steel slip-ring loops each hold multiple birds by the neck, plenty of room for one-, two-or three-hunter limits.
Plus, the padded, no-slip neck strap makes for comfortable hikes out of the marsh, timber or field.
Since it fits compactly in most jacket pockets, the Game Hog never leaves my side. Now, whenever I need to hang a day's bag of fat mallards or hefty Canadas, a reliable game strap is always at the ready.
Don't get me wrong metal-wire game straps will always have a place in my shooting bag for hefty hauling, like a four-hunter Nebraska limit of 12 big Canada geese. However, the fold-up convenience and light weight of the Game Hog make it one accessory every waterfowler or upland-bird hunter should consider.
