Ever get tired of those flimsy cheesecloth game bags that do not keep anything clean and do nott keep flies away from your meat? The very best of game bags can be made for very little cash. Used bed sheets - double or full size - work fine for deer or elk quarters. Simply fold the sheet in half lengthwise, sew a seam along the side and one end, then sew on a piece of 1/2" nylon webbing about 24'' long, tacking it in the center, sewn 6" down from the open end on one side. This will serve as a permanently affixed tie for closing the bag; you will appreciate this feature when you use them. The game bags made out of bed sheets breathe well, allowing air circulation around the meat, positively keep flies out, and keep your meat clean. These game bags can be used for years... simply wash them after use, and put them away for the next year. I have bags my grandfather made this way, and am still using them! Used bed sheets at thrift shops cost around fifty cents.
