The Trophy Bag Kooler: Hunting Gear Review

Product:

The Trophy Bag Kooler™

Product Description:

A unique soft sided cooler designed to keep your game meat cool when temperatures are warm while transporting from field to freezer. It comes in 8 sizes to handle big game quarters like elk to whole whitetails and small sizes for hogs and turkeys. This product is available in several camo patterns such as Realtree and Mossy Oak and a new buckskin color.

Thoughts and Comments:

If you’re like me you often hunt early season when it’s warm. This product is the answer to ensuring your meat is as fresh as possible from the field to the processor or taxidermist.

I have used this bag for the past two seasons after purchasing one at the QDMA show. I have to say it works great and I’ve been surprised how cold it will keep even a large deer carcass. Pictured is the big whitetail I took here in Ohio this September.  I kept this large bodied deer in the bed of my pickup inside my Trophy Bag Kooler overnight in 50F rain with 4 bags of ice and it was nearly frozen the next morning! The bags of ice only melted about 50%.

In the past I would hang early season deer on a gambrel and put an ice bag inside the chest cavity and tie bags of ice around the deer. This works ok but many times the ice is completely melted before morning. The other nice benefit to using this product is I don’t have to physically hoist the deer up, I simply roll the deer into the bag while in the bed of my truck, add ice and zip it shut. It’s quick, nearly effortless and much more effective at keeping the meat cold.

Here’s another application for this bag you might not think about. You can actually use the bag in late season to keep the meat cold but not frozen. If you have you ever tried to skin out a frozen deer hide you know the other value this bag will provide.

The Trophy Bag Koolers are fairly priced at $149.99 to $219.99 depending on the model. I am happy to say this cooler is made in the USA! Like most guys I talk to I would prefer to buy products made right here by fellow Americans than from overseas.

Pros:

  • Improve the quality of your meat and cape
  • Available in various sizes and colors
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Made in America
  • Light and easy to pack for hunting trips
  • Priced right
  • Buy it direct or from leading retailers

Cons:

  • The only challenge I had using this product was getting the legs into the holes while the deer was all stiffened up. I’m not sure how to solve that problem.

Rating:

Based on my personal experiences I would give this product a 9 out of 10.
