OT: Deer cooler

So what size cooler, yeti, pelican, brute, do you guys use? I'm in need of a "high" performance cooler to pack out a deer. Is 40-60 ok? Or go bigger?

    Don't know, but if your luck is anything like mine, you're going to drop all this cash on fancy cooler and never see a deer to put in it. Roadkill....

    @Mickey, you know that if you needed a full Yeti 60 to be moved in Salado you would have just strapped it to your pack mule, uh, er, @henapple ...

    I've got the 45. It won't be big enough for what you need. When full, 1 man can move the 45 short distances. I'm thinking of selling the 45 and going with a 20/65 combo.

    I'd be pimp slapped for only carrying 60lbs.

    Actually I think it is 60 quarts plus the weight of the cooler. It's right in your wheelhouse.

  • A 25-30 lbs cooler with one dressed doe couldn't weigh more than 100 lbs.

    I just don't know if anyone used a yeti for this and had experience.
