Easy loading compared to the truck or the dump bed Rhino ATV we use to haul horse manure this time of year.

I’ve done it with the jet sled, 2 wheel cart, truck (Michigan days) and on my back. But this is by far the best method where I hunt now………when they finally get big enough :).

Learned quite a few years back that a jet sled will float a quartered deer, treestand, bow and pack.

Same as PushCo just orange in color.

I don't have photos at my fingertips. My recovery vehicle in S.E. Alaska has usually been a skiff with an outboard or a canoe. Often that has been after packing off the mountain on my back if not a lucky easy one taken on the beach.

Going in to recover a deer and just had to take a ride. Volume up on the video. I may have been having to much fun.

Did you know that a sled full of elk meat hurts really bad when it runs over you.

My home recovery vehicle is the same a PushCoArcher. It also doubles nicely as a game hoist.

I’ve used this versacart for years. My son has hauled his deer in it. Now his son will, help.

Mdjunior, that’s the best cart ever. I still have mine 20 years later and it’s packed out every deer I’ve killed in Connecticut.

When deadfall is so bad a cart, 4 wheeler, truck or what ever can't be used. Oh, & being a poor man too.

t-roy,,, how many brow tines did that deer have? it looked like either 5 or 6. Beautiful animal. I am a versacart person too.

Old bathtub with or without wheels hmmm. An tarp and drag rope make good light weight drag sled. I'm thinking a wheelbarrel modified for my leapard ebike.

Pat, I credit this site for introducing me to that cart. Mine too has hauled a ton of deer over the 18-20 years I’ve have it.
