First Look: Ranew's Outdoors Hanging Judge Gambrel and Scale

posted on October 8, 2019
Many hunters have long processed their own game, but as more begin to involve themselves in conservation, including land and animal management, determining the weight of one's deer becomes more than merely an exercise in bragging rights. It becomes, rather, an integral part of one's herd management process. The Hanging Judge Gambrel and Scale, from Ranew's Outdoor Equipment, allows hunters to get an accurate weight on their deer (or other, similar, game animal), with a high enough capacity to measure live weight as well as dressed. As it takes its readings while the deer is hanging in the conventional position, the Hanging Judge is the perfect accessory for anyone who does their own butchering, though it could also be used by those who simply want to know a little more about their deer before it is sent elsewhere for processing.
