Can someone tell me where I can order one of those fawn cradles or a similar product? I promised myself last year after tagging fawns on my own, that I would get one before this season. Thanks.

This is a great fawn cradle - we purchased one last year & it is great.

Why buy one when you can make one ? My first one was from a motel that held suitcases. It would fold up and was made from tubing and canvas. I used it one year and designed something better.A square yard of canvas or heavy material with four holes for the legs and bring up both sides up to a point and attach two clips you use on shade cloth. I hang this on a s hook on the bottom of a scale. You have to trim to access the head and rear. AS they hang there you weigh,tag and give shots.This has worked great for the last two years.I did glue a 2 inch x 15 stiff cardboard strips on side each to stiffen it up a little.They can kick but just hang there and you have both hands free.

Sounds like a pretty neet idea you should make a few to sell. Do you have a picture of it you could post to give a better idea of how to make.

My wife is making ours from a luggage stand from a motel too. I ll post a pic as soon as I find our camera. The luggage stand she bought off of ebay for 20 dollars and the 2'x3' piece of material cost 2 dollars.

whew . . . I thought we were encouraging each other to take the luggage stands from our hotel rooms . . . I just went to ebay, and they're all over the place (probably from other people stealing them out of their hotel rooms ) . . . it looks like a great (and pretty simple) idea to make one for yourself. Thanks for the tips!

Thanks for the picture. That looks like a nice set up might have to try something like that.
