    I use a 2 wheel cart that works good on hard ground with it's hard wheels. Last years buck was a mile and a half into some wet woods with plenty of down falls. I wasn't going to drag it (I would still be there :) so the cart is what I used. I was surprised how well it worked. I rolled it over a few times but it was way easier than dragging. It went through muck and water 6-8 inches deep surprisingly well. Any deeper the axle drags and may get hung up. I've used sleds before and I think this was easier unless there is snow on the ground.

    In a swamp I've found a jetsled to work best. Extra weight on the back makes for tough hike out when you're already knee to thigh deep water.

    Man you all are working too hard. I just bring my best friend and say I bet you can't carry this deer out by yourself

    I was thinking the other day about trying to motorize my deer-cart. Wondering if I can rig up the business end of an old trolling motor to some kind of belt/chain system and run it off one of those smaller 12 volt batteries they use for feeders/kayaks.... just to "assist" on hills. Like a pull you across the yard lawnmower

    Legal on public? would it technically be considered a vehicle?

    good product idea regardless...wonder why its not already available, so I don't have to build it

    This guy has a pretty cool set-up in it's basic form. Was checking out some other vids and he basically uses bicycle panniers to haul out meat. Using this drive system on a cart like Redfeather posted would be pretty slick too.

    yeah Id never actually researched it but there is one...for 3300-5000 o_O http://www.badriveroutdoors.com/jack-tuff/little-mule-cart.php which is ridiculous.

    Take one of those electric bicycle motor/batteries...put it on a $100 deer cart.

    This is the thing I mentioned earlier. Although I think I’d add a cross brace at the front to push against.

    I started quartering and packing deer out during the 1982 season and haven't hung one since. And, I'll have to admit it's a lot harder now that I've gotten a lot older, but I still manage to get the job done. A couple of weeks ago I killed my heaviest deer ever (250 pounds), and there was no way that I was going to be able to pack out one that was more than twice as big as most of the others I've killed. I was hunting private property and usually bring my four wheeler in case I need to get one out. But it was down so, just in case, I decided to bring my two wheel dolly. And, was glad that I did..... worked like a charm.

    Plastic sled seems to be the easy way to drag. I have also used a cart many times.

    One day I am going to part one out in the woods and carry the meat out in bags.
