After getting home from packing out an elk, I was watching the history channel and saw a video of North Vietnamese troops pushing bicycles loaded with supplies and thought that was an excellent idea and could be developed for getting an elk out. Their bikes had the seat removed and used a longer seat extension to hold onto as they pushed the bike. I have wanted to develop this idea for my next hunt. Removing the pedals would make it easier to push. Creating a net made of webbing would be lightweight and ideal for strapping one or two elk quarters onto the bike. This would also make packing supplies and equipment in and out of the back country much easier. Anyone else have any thoughts on this idea?
