Hang bags off of that. Only used it once so far but for a moose. We strapped one leg to a tree for stability. Shaved the leg ends so it would stick in the ground easier. Also hung a tarp over it. However this was in the woods no tundra.
    ...........Just used it for a bull caribou also.

    The size wood you use totally depends on length of span and how it is, or isn't, supported.....
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    I reference ours which was a 2x6x10' for a horizontal beam, 2x4x8's for A-frame vertical supports and then each end had ropes/more wood which kept it from racking and collapsing.
    Up to 5 caribou on this contraption.
    A 2x4x10' horizontal beam collapsed and held less.
