A. Functionality -
The unit works very effectively on most every type of waterfowl game bird. The only preparation that is needed is to pull the skin and feathers away from the breast meat. From there it is as simple as impaling the bird onto the main stainless steel tubing and pulling the lever back. Leaving a perfectly cleaned game bird, legal for transportation with a fully feathered wing attached. This unit also works very well on pheasants and larger species of upland birds but it’s downfall is not being very effective on smaller upland type game birds. The other downfall is the storage of the unit in transportation on trips as it does not come in a bag and is a little cumbersome in size.
B. Durability -
The unit is made from a very durable light weight, food grade stainless steel design. The stainless steel part of the unit detaches quickly from either the bench mount plate or trailer hitch tubing with 4 wing nuts. The trailer hitch tubing breaks down into 2 pieces and being aluminum are light weight and compactable for travel. Setting unit up is very easy and straight forward in a matter of 2 minutes. Clean up on the stainless unit is also fast depending on water source availability. The stainless steel tubing used in the device is the only piece you need to be careful with, due to its penetration capabilities during storage.

The Unit with the trailer hitch mount is priced at $179.95.
