    Have a mile of mule tape, what can I do with it?

    I have a bunch of mule tape. It is handy stuff. Any ideas on what I could make with it? I use it in place of rope and have made a tow rope with several pieces of it. Come on DIY'ers

    We use it to retrieve game if we are lucky enough to get one near a road or atv trail. Leave your pieces as long as possible, you can also tie pieces together if you have to. When you get a deer, or whatever down, tie onto its head and go to the road (we have gone 1/4 mile +). Coming perpendicular into the road with the rope is the best, park a truck or atv on the side of the road and go around the ball. Your muletape will make a 90 degree turn around the ball on the parked vehicle and tie onto the ball of another truck or atv. SLOWLY drive the second vehicle down the road. I say slow becouse you need someone guiding the animal and 3 miles an hour is quick to that guy. We have pulled muledeer up 40 degree slopes in clearcuts to get to logging roads. I don't how far you can realisticly go but but we have gone a long ways.

    Mule Tape. Pretty good for just about anything. I don't recall ever having mule tape break on me. I've used it to secure things into the bed of the truck and lift heavy auto parts in a pinch.

    Weave a Hammock BUT design it for a tree stand sitting/shooting. Also make some snow shoes.

    I use it to make a portable bow compressor (Thru the cams) just to do minor work like string changes, peep adj., and module changes. I use it with a metal ring or washer, and a turnbuckle w/ a J-hook.

    This stuff is sort of a woven strap made of polyester, nylon, or dacron, right? Why not cut some short pieces and see if it will work as string silencers? That would really depend on how wide it is and how nicely it will unravel. You start with a 1.5-2.0" piece, open your string bundle, insert, and then shoot the bow a few dozen times to see if it will unravel itself into a nice puff-type silencer.

    I understand that it can only be used once to pull wire. I have acquired a bunch over the years and use it for everything

    When I first got it I tied the ends of a short piece together. I could pull a full size pickup with just the double strand of the light stuff. A jerk would break it. I made a 20 foot rope by running a piece back and fourth and then just putting electrical tape every foot to keep it together. Pulled my car from the ditchlast winter in a storm but have not needed it again.
    Some people have asked if I want to sell it. I got it free so am not inclined to do that. I am thinking of offering some 100 or so hanks. I would use the $5 flat rate boxes. Anyone in would prepay with paypal. I am then asking that anyone who receives it and would like to donate to Run for the Son could then do so via paypal. I belong to CMA (Christian Motorcyclist Association) Run for the Son is a fundraiser we do for missionaries. Give me some feedback on this idea please. Thanks. I would donate all money spent on shipping also.

    Anyone have an old style rope maker? My dad has about 5000ft on a spool in the garage. I braided 3pieces that started as 50ft, took a couple of hours but I ended up with a great pull strap. Problem I had was it cuts farely easy. Sharp edges of my atv reece hitch cut the rope everytime. If you could braid 3 pieces with another 2 braid pieces (9total strands) you'd have a real strap.

    Most mule tape has a tensil strength of either 2250lbs or 1250lbs.
