How to Transport Harvest Game (Part I)  311 words

Make sure to follow your states requirements for transporting game.

One of the best parts of hunting is taking your harvest home, either as a new mount for the living room wall or your dinner table. But the trip from the woods to the wall can be hard and long. There are some things you should know before you start.

First, not only should you have a license to hunt, but a transportation permit too. You must tag each animal you bag with a transportation permit before you bring it to the check-in-station. Once you’ve checked it in, you can go back into the woods.

Second, there are real safety concerns with transporting harvested game. There are personal safety issues with transporting the game from the woods to your vehicle. Also, there are real serious concerns about the spread of disease when moving to, from and through containment areas.

Once your harvest is packed in your vehicle, how you bring it to the check-in station and to your residence or the processors is a sensitive issue that has the attention of lawmakers and the public. You must always remember to use respectful techniques while hunting.

When you have a true understanding of the issues regarding transporting harvested game, make sure to follow up with your state’s specific guidelines.

Permits to Transport Harvested Game

Each state necessitates a permit to transport harvested game. With these permits com­e certain tagging and transportation requirements.

Before transporting a carcass, you have to tag it with a completed field tag that includes your name, address, hunting license number, date and time of the kill. This tag should be written in ink and stay on the carcass until it has been brought to an official game check station. If you don’t have an official field tag, you can create one, as long as it has all the pertinent information.


How to Move a Grandfather Clock (Part III) 

Before moving your grandfather clock, you must first prepare it to prevent damage.

Stop tangling of tie cables or chains

Reach inside via the side panel and wind the weights close to the top. Holding the ends of the cables or chains together with your hands, secure them with either a twist tie or packing tape. This will stop the chains from getting tangled up in each other while the weights are being removed and the clock is in transport.

Remove the weights

Now that the chain/cables are tied together, reach inside and remove the weights. As you remove the weights, wrap them in either packing paper or bubble wrap for protection. Make sure to label every individual weight with its corresponding location inside of the clock. After the move, these weights have to be put back inside the clock in their original location.

Remove the pendulum

To remove the pendulum, you’ll have to first stop it from swinging. The pendulum must be attached to the pendulum guide at the top. Cautiously unhook the pendulum from the pendulum guide. Wrap the pendulum in packing paper or bubble wrap and carefully put it inside of a moving box.

Remove the top of the clock

If it’s plausible, remove the top of the grandfather clock, disassemble it cautiously and put it on a table. Wrap the face of the clock in bubble wrap and fasten it with packing tape. Wrap the top of the Grandfather Clock in packing paper or bubble wrap too.

Move the Grandfather Clock to the truck rental

Once all the individual parts are packed away, start wrapping the outside of the grandfather clock in either moving blankets, padding, and/or bubble wrap. For more protection, we advise taking a big moving box with both the top and bottom ends open. Next, slide it from the top of the grandfather clock to its middle. This should protect the grandfather clock on all four sides.
