    I'm hunting whitetail again after a long hiatus. Any suggestions for transporting the carcass? I don't have a truck or trailer anymore. The options consist of Saturn Wagon and Windstar. Staining the interiors will get me unwanted attention.

    Perhaps something like this might help:

    They also make "trays" for cargo areas, but I don't know if they make them for the models you mentioned.

    Heavy duty drop cloth from Walmart/Home Depot/Lowes/etc should run <$5.

    Managed to fit 3 deer in the back of my Blazer without a problem.

    with the wagon you could just wrap it up in a tarp and lash it to the roof. if you do a burrito type wrap you won't have to worry about it flapping around. i used to do that with my buick century back in high school.

    I saw in one of my HQ surplus catalogs where they sell Military body bags real cheap for that purpose. Just a couple of dollars and leak proof (supposedly)

    Buy a tarp from Walmart for $10.00 and you are set. I have transported three deer in the back of my Explorer and have yet to have any blood or other juice leak onto the carpet. You just have to wrap it up with the creases/folds in the air and you'll be fine.

    Good luck!!!

    I have a 1993 Saturn stationwagon that I had used to transport several deer in. All I did was lay down some cheap plastic sheets from Walley World ($3.99 a roll)and I am on my way. If you get any blood anywhere be sure to clean it up immediatly, unless you like flies and and angry wives.

    To make it easier you might try quartering it, something commonly done to larger game animals (elk and moose) to facilitate transporting them either on horseback or boneing it out something done for packing it out on your back.

    No reason to take the whole critter out when you can reduce the size and weight by 60% or so. If you choose to bone it out you don't have to gut the animal :) not even to get the tenderloins.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll go with the heavy tarp and transport inside. Opening Day for gun is still more than a month away and I can't wait.:)
