Big buck haven

Post by skyhightree1 » Sat Oct 27, 2018 6:30 pm

There's a place locally where a man doesn't let people hunt we have became good aquatintences can't say friends yet. I asked if I could hunt his place a few times he said hunt all you want but no ATV usage ... :? So tomorrow I will build myself a deer cart. Has anyone else built or used one? The furthest I would have to get one our is 200yds. I won't be shooting anything small for sure.

Well Sky I missed a stud this morning about 9:30. Arrow hit a twig and deflected. Then I said bad words at myself for not clearing that shooting lane better. Seen 9 so far this morning.

Like wheel barrows -- there are single and double wheel models. Some single wheel models are light weight aluminum, break down, and are designed for back country. I prefer a pack frame in that situation. The cheap double wheel steel models are designed for using on a cart path. I would be tempted to just use a wheel barrow in that case - - taking out a half at a time. You could also consider buying the wife a two wheel garden cart and getting her to help. ;-)

200 yards? Grab a hind leg and take off to the truck.

I'm not dragging a deer backwards. But you can use your treestand
safety harness and tie to the head of the deer and drag it pretty good.
