    It weighs about 160 lbs, and is 9' from the ground to the top. It's just me and my wife. Need to move it about 100 yards and set it upright. I can't get the deer to help me.

    The drum is about the size of an outside air conditioning unit. About 3' tall and 3' in diameter. It has 3 legs. They are about 7' tall.

    Can you lay it down in the bed of a truck, move it to where you want it and then tip it up out of the truck? Might need one person pushing it up from the truck bed and another on a rope pulling on the opposite side.

    A 3'X3' drum with legs should not weigh that much. Is it empty? Take a rope and hook it to the drum and take your truck and pull it up just enough to get one leg off the ground,or a come along and remove 1 leg and let it down to the ground. Do the same to pull it up.

    In the past I have used the winch on my 4 wheeler as a counter weight so to speak, so that it lowers something slowly as I tip it up onto its legs. Could also use a come-along and straps/rope in a similar fashion. Not sure how much equipment you have at your disposal.
