I shot my biggest deer last year and had to drag it through mud, brush and swamp about 3/4 of a mile back to my truck. Not fun and I am surprised I’m not dead from it. Im looking for input on products for making that easier. I’ve found plastic sleds/wraps on Sportsmen’s Guide and other sites as well as carts. I don’t think the cart thing would work where I hunt so I’m looking for something to make dragging easier beit through mud or snow. Thanks.
Best Deer Drag Product/Trick
I used to take extra rope or parachute cord and make a travois,with trees or big branches when I hunted elk, gets it up off the ground, you got two nice handles and you can face forward. Sleds wouldnt work half of the time because they flip over on side hills and you would have to bring it with or go back to get it.
Been using kids plastic toboggans for years. Picked them up at garage sales for a few dollars. Add a series of rope along the sides to hold deer in place. Important to not use just a rope with a knot at the front pulling end of toboggan, it will just pull through. I make a complete loop of rope with wood backers at the front end. This has never pulled through.
