    Have in the past tied front legs over head and hooked the drag rope to my harness. Having had some back problems over the last few years, I picked up a folding cart. Fits in the back seat of the car, I leave it there all season. It's not the most well built thing, but for $60 it's not bad. IMG_20180923_165433633.jpg

    This doesn't belong to me, but some friends. It was used quite a bit on this hunt back in 1977. Home made rig with only 1 bicycle wheel mounted in the middle. Makes it very maneuverable in tight spots. The guy looking at the bear killed it. They were camping near us and borrowed the carrier. I helped them get it out.


    Another view in camp. And no, that isn't me, just one of my hunting partners resting while everyone else sets up camp.


    I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but bought one of these

    I've used a few different things and a couple of yrs ago I purchased some sleds on clearance and have used them ever since, I gave one to a friend and now people at his hunting camp has purchased more. They have some that are more flexible than mine and he said they work better. I think the best thing is a 4 wheeler or young back.

    My deer carrier has a rack on either end and an engine to get me there. :D

    I've had one of those that I bought at Cabelas 25 or so years ago. It has hauled many a deer out from mud to woods, mostly by towing it with a dirt bike. I've even stuck 3 small pigs on it at one time and hauled 'em out. Still have the thing, but my ATV is a little better. Deer don't get mud all over 'em from the back tire. ROFL

    I used to roll that thing up and stuff it in my backpack when I hunted public for hogs. No need to pull it around if you don't have game on it.

    Oh, I also have a 4x4 New Holland tractor with a front loader. It's new and I really didn't buy it for hunting. :D

    I still think the borrowed mule is the way to go. No worries about areas that don't allow wheeled vehicles.
