To grab an antler in late season after the rut, you risk breaking one or both the antlers off closer it gets to shedding.

I don't think the man with deer on his back should be ever cornered. And a plastic sled works great snow or not.

#2 for an atv is best over short drags, no blood on you or the atv.

The one on the back of the motorcycle looks like a donkey! Not sure though. The hair is kind of fuzzy, you can see the light hair forming a "collar" around the neck, but it looks like it has cloven hooves. ?????

We shoot some real big deer up in Canada and we use Buckbags & BuckSleds. We'e taken a few that weighed over 300 lbs. before they were field dressed.

I'm going to figure how to get him out, after I figure out how to get him down. Only 14days left.

Dead sled works fine even without the snow.

I love my chevy impala, huge trunk, better gas milage than my truck, can fit a buck and doe in it and still close the trunk

I've always thought a simple cheap plastic sled worked the best. I have never used one in the snow and still I believe in this. You can pull it over every rock and stick in the woods.

The best part of deer season is when you finally get the animal into the back of your pickup, the best way to get it home after packing it out of the woods.

Well I live out in the country here in Arkansas, I use my 10 yr. old ATV to move my deer when possible, but about one more ring job on the wheeler and I may just go for the Horses!

We used to use the deer carts but the wheels never held up. The best option I ever used was when we built mounted a box on top of a toboggan sled. It held 3 bucks and rode like a champ all the way to the truck.

I can't believe you didn't show the helicopter extract that some of the New Zealand outfitters use to get the massive Red Stag out of the bush and mountains. Either way, a great segment!!! Nothing beats a 4 dollar sled from Wal-mart and a few inches of snow

"I once met two guys out in the woods dragging a deer out they each had a hold of the back legs. I told them that a deer will drag easier if you grab it by the front and go. About an hour later one guy looks at the other and says, it is dragging a lot easier but aren't we moving away from the truck".
