Does anyone make an aluminum deer transport box? I am looking for an aluminum crate so it is lighter than wood.


Thanks,


Jake

Aluminum is lighter, but I would think the crate will get very hot inside while in the sunlight. Maybe I think too much LOL.

I didn't specify very clearly but to be exact I am looking for aluminum frame with fiberglass shell around it. Just something lighter than wood and that will hold up better. Also, it was brought to my attention than the aluminum may be too loud and spook the deer. Do you think that by using a fiberglass shell it will cut down on the noise enough that it wont bother the deer inside?


Thanks Again,


Jake

Fiberglass should have similar sound dampening properties to plywood. Waterproof and easier cleanup are features as well.

The deer do fine in a fiberglass box. The aluminum frame would be very nice. I used one once before it was very good. If you find some one making them, let me know
