What do you think it should cost to haul two does (sharing a stall) 500ish miles on a full trailer load (9 stalls)?

I look at it like this. You can spend money to have a trailer and truck, pay a driver, maintain a vehicle, insurance etc, or have deer boxes and make a 500 mile one way trip empty and 500 miles back with a couple deer or pay yes, $400-600 for someone else.



There are a lot of factors that go into that price. There are also some peole that may do it for $50 who knows.

I had a friend that bought a Live cover to a buck and spent $17,000 on the live cover..........and COMPLAINED to high heaven that $400 to deliver his deer to Ohio was an OUTRAGE!!

In the whole scope of things the "Taxi Ride" is USUALLY the most INSIGNIFIGANT part of the deer!LOL



Josh & Curt are SPOT ON!

Very interesting. I didn't realize hauling prices had increased so much since November. Good to know. Thanks for the insight.

Kurt yeah it sound great but by the time you figure fuel and ins and maint and your time it is not all it is cracked up to be also what no one seems to understand is a truck uses the same amount of fuel and insurance stays the same price if your hauling maxbo ranger or a 200 dollar doe just my thoughts

No kiddin Kurt! $600 per stall x 9 stalls = $5,400 for 500 miles. And sounds like people think that's reasonable!

I've had to pay 350.-400. Per deer to have them delivered! I could NOT justify a 2 day trip,fuel ,food and a motel for all that in my truck not at today's fuel prices!

But then I only get 1 or 2 deer a year.

Pharmer- It is reasonable. To fill up your 9 stalls, your going to have to travel ALOT more than 500 miles. He will probably end up at 1500 miles or even more. Not every farm is right along the interstate. Ive hauled deer all over the country and those prices are right on.

you guys need to get real those other eight stalls are most likely going more than 500 mile the driver is going a little out of his way to get your deer and out of his way to pick them up I tell you what if you think it is so unreasonable come ride with me out on the road for a week or so and we will see how you feel then

Just made a trip to Pa and back 1 st trip couple weeks ago and my motor went out so came home bought a 1 ton diesel went again this last week now that $18k truck is in the shop getting new injectors and at 300-400 each and the $800 in fuel hotels and what have you in the last week and then i didnt even get to haul the guys deer had to find someone else to do it so lets see i am out $2100 for hauling the deer and say $800 in fuel and hotels then you add in the $3k for the new injectors that makes it say $6000 not to add in the 4 days i spent on the road, Insurance and the other little things. People want to complain about what we charge or try to get us to do it for a outrageously low price then dont buy a $500 doe 1000+ miles from home Like Curt has said our trucks dont care if you have a $20k or a $500 deer in the trailer it uses the same amount of fuel Insurance and other wear and tear either way Just my thoughts on the subject

I made a trip to pa from oklahoma hauling one deer for me and four for other guys. I charged them 400 a head to haul theirs. By the time I paid for a room,food, fuel and wear on my truck I lost money. So yes 500.00 a deer is reasonable have you priced a truck lately. I'm glad we have guys that travel for us cause time is worth a lot. Just my two cents.
