New Gambrel For All Types Of Game
December 2003

Mark's Universal Gambrel lets you hang, weigh, and clean your harvest with ease. It weighs 10 ounces and has a weight capacity of 850 pounds. Unlike traditional gambrels, which require making an incision in the animal's legs and then inserting hook ends, the Universal Gambrel uses gravity to seize the animal's legs in the loops located on both ends of the galvanized steel spreader bar. To weigh an animal, just insert the front legs into one loop, the rear legs into the other loop, and then attach your scale to the hanger eye and hoist the animal. Available in two sizes: 16 inches for small deer and hogs and 20 inches for large deer, hogs, and bears. Contact: Mark's Universal Gambrel, 3934 Sawyerwood Rd., Dept.

Tested to 800lbs.

2 sizes available, 16" for small deer and hogs, and 20" for large deer, bear and elk.


This device may look overly simple, but it works wonderfully. Instead of using the old method of cutting a slit in the hock of a big game animal, the Universal Gambrel uses gravity to cinch up on the leg of game ranging in size from hogs to elk.

This design allows you to remove the hams, one at a time without slipping off and falling to the ground.

The gambrel is tested to 800 pounds yet weights just 14 ounces. It comes in two sizes, 16" - for small deer and hogs, and 20" for large deer, hogs and bear.

Pros: Lightweight, compact, very easy to use and remarkably strong for its size.
Cons: None


The Universal Gambrel is light weight and easy to use. It takes all the traditional hassles of hanging and weighing your game away. The aircraft aluminum and cable design will give you a lifetime of carefree use. The unit is surprisingly strong for its weight and is very easy to pack into the woods on your hunt. The biggest surprise we found was it does exactly what it is supposed to do and more. We spent some spare moments coming up with all kinds of different uses for it around the camp, but finally settled on it being one great piece of equipment. As one hunter said, (Itís the best of both worlds, what a rich man wants and a poor man can afford.)
