Re: Capstan winches for recovery

Thanks Shawn. That's a good point about the tangles and the sled. I was actually considering what to do about either a sled or a cone. What did you make your sled out of and how big?

Re: Capstan winches for recovery

Not a perfect match to your question, but we (Fire Dept) use a receiver mounted capstan on our Heavy Rescue truck to aid in low slope rescues/recoveries. Same as above, low stretch poly braid rope is preferred. Anything beyond 300' of rope makes a mess at your feet. For game I'd suggest multiple pulls of lesser length if you can relocate with ease.

Great piece of kit, would make a great game recovery system.
