Girls how do you pack out the big game...

Postby MrsJumpshooter » Fri Aug 15, 2008 1:27 pm

ok girls I know that most of us dont hunt alone and probably shouldn't and Im not this year but I have a delima hubby drew this year for a buck, cow combo and it goes the same time as my deer hunt so there is a possibability that I am going to have to pack out my own deer this year so I was wondering if any of you have any sugestions as to what i can do if it ends up happening

I have posted in the guys forum with no answer
I hunt it, Therfore I cook it too!

I have it pretty easy compared to a lot of people. We don't have anything higher than a few rolling hills where I deer hunt and it's all farmland. At the very worst, the furthest I'd have to do is drag a deer 1/4 mile before I get to a spot where I could throw it onto a truck.

What kind of terrain do you hunt in? And how far from roads or trails? Is it an area where you could drive an ATV?

I bought a game cart last year for hauling my duck decoys and gear, but its original purpose was actually for hauling game - two big wheels on a frame with a canvas web stretched across it. It can hold 550 pounds, and it's easy to break down (I squeeze mine into the back of my Rav4, with back seats pulled out).

Here's a link to it on Cabela's: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?type=product&cmCat=Related_IPL_228304&id=0005568222380a


So if you're not in crazy hilly terrain, or really brushy terrain, it might work well. But for steep hills or heavy brush, it probably wouldn't be much help.

if your comfortable with it, bone it out in the woods then you just have to carry out the important stuff.....that's what I've done before, but we do mostly hamburger, and back strap.
:sniper: good luck on your hunt!!!
