Cabela's has some nice ones you might check there. You can't pile as much stuff on there as you might think though.

If you're looking to move alot of dekes, maybe you could get a discarded dolly and modify it.........I wanted a 'dolly' for moving around a coffin box, and made a few mods to a golf cart I picked up at the transfer station....took an hour and materials I had around the barn......have used it for field hunting, but it wobbles a bit under a heavy load and in ruts. I am sure with larger tires I would be fine.....just a couple of ideas (I hate to spend $ when it's easy to make as a functional tool)

I just use a garden cart the bigger ones easy to use and not to pricy. All you have to do is throw a piece of camo over it. And it blend right in.

I've posted about it before, but I have one that is built for hauling dekes, layout blinds and/or my layout boat. It is very long so I can wheel my boat, but it could be shorter (approx 10ft). Has a simple axle and wheelchair wheels/tires mounted on it. The thought was the more narrow the tire, the easier it cuts through mud if it sinks. Bars welded up to two handles, with crossbars and eyelets (for ratchet straps) welded in. Bottom is flat like a dolly to hold stuff in.

Works better than any cart commercially made IMO. I'm planning on making a quick change wheel setup, so I can go with fat rubber wheels on harder ground, but the wheelchair wheels work fine.

Steel is higher now, but bet you could make one for much less than the Cabelas cart...

I know you can't have a motorized one, but this is what we are using. Just thought I'd share. Custom front/roof/rear foldable cargo racks. Now it just needs camo, and nobbys for the rear.
