Pull Sled

Are those Pull sleds that you put your gear in hard to pull over grass and dirt?

I have mine on a cart that i use to pull down leavies until i get to the hunting spot. Then I pull it over grass, dirt and through tullies and over the water.

depending on the amount of gear that you have, it pulls very easy. I usually have no less than 50lbs of gear and it pulls fine. I have probably had as much as 150lbs in it before.

Be carefull in water. You can pack more gear in it than will allow it to flaot. I have had the water an inch from comming over the sides before.
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?

I made one two years ago out of an old pickup bed liner and it pulls so easy you won't even know its behind you. Last year, when everything was frozen, I had 3 dozen goose decoys 2 guns and 2 equipment bags on it and when I stoped walking the sled would pass me. The thing works great.

When the plastic kids sleds go on clearance at walmart scoop them up. They work great.

pull sled

i made a pull sled out of a 42 gallon black garbage can that has the wheels on it. i use it in field hunting through gumbo, and water works great. If you paint it and glue some grass on grass on it works great as a lay down blind also.

We use 2 of em, they work great for walk in areas and for fields we cannot drive in, we have a pretty big one then a smaller one not sure who makes the ones we have but they get their use.

I have a jet-sled. Works great. I also got the hitch attachment from Cabela's for pulling it behind my quad. They usually have them at a lot of stores for ice fishing. They usually go on clearance late in the season. That’s when I got mine. Saved some $. I love it for duck hunting. Also works great for hulling tree stands and ladders. Pull deer out with it also: much easier to drag one out on the sled even on grass.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!

I have a deer cart that I place the sled on for the walk until I get to the water. This last week I encountered mud and it really mucked up the wheels to the point I threw everything on my back and had to make 2 trips. It's about a mile to the water - do you guys use extra wide tires?
