I wasn't that old when I invented the Game Handler, I just wasn't very big. I was hunting in a climbing stand one morning in a pine thicket in east Texas The weather was pretty bad and a steady drizzle had set in. A few black long haired pigs came in and I decided to shoot one. They were traveling along a dry creek bed on the opposite hill. When I shot, it went to the bottom of the hill in the brush. When I went to recover it I thought, no problem. It was only about 100 pounds and was going to be perfect. I grabbed the back legs and tried to pull it up the hill. It was like greased snot. I could not hold onto it or pick it up. I had a 4-wheeler which was uphill from the animal. I had the rain, the weight, and the dead animal against me. I had a cargo strap on the 4-wheelers rack so I threw it around the hog and tried to pull him up the hill. I got it to the 4 wheeler but could not get it on the back rack. As I pulled on the strap, and it slid out of my hand, that's when I thought, "if this strap only had some handles". From that day on I couldn't stop thinking about those straps. I had been trying to invent a loading system for years because of the fear I had of not being able to load one alone. Several months later I had my prototype and a patent application. I use to be afraid to hunt alone, but I have loaded numerous animals by myself and can't believe it's so simple now.
