Your Predator Hunting High Racks

Recommended Posts

Since this subject comes up frequently, I thought we should have a thread devoted to it. (Thanks Jussjake!)

 

Post photos and details of your predator hunting high racks here, both truck and ATV. You can post rigs you have made for others too.

 

Bob :P

Minikills asked me to post his photos of the new high rack he just built for his new Toyota calling truck.

A couple of pictures of my 94 Chevy hunting truck.

 

The first one was taken at my deer lease near Ozona, the second at the ranch we hunt near Iraan.

 

I'll get some more up later.

Its still a work in progress, we're going to add remote controlled lights, shooting rests, and wrap it in canvas(the camp burlap was last minute solution).

Hard to see but I have a deck 24" wide inbetween the chairs that allows Clay to lay prone and shoot off a bipod. We throw a camo pad down and he shoots from it. Also allows an extra shooter to be with shotgun for speedy varmits that want to blow in and blow out. Used a bearing from pumping unit wristpin to rotate deck on. Works well but is plenty heavy. Hard to keep traction on wet nights and turn table with leg. I sit on the right and do all the calling and turn table.

I have a 96 Tahoe that I hunt out of and want to build a rack on but I am not sure what the best way to attach it would be. Any suggestions

you would have to build brackets to attach to the frame,come out from under the body,and then go up. Pretty tough way to have to do it.It would be best to bolt to frame,as welding on the frame is a little tricky and can cause you tons of headaches down the road when the frame starts cracking from the welds. If you do want to weld it,weld on tops and bottoms only,not on the face of the frame. If you would like to discuss this,send me a PM,I am in Leander,not that far away.

AR is right, bolt on is the way to go. If not done correctly, the frame will crack and break.
