    That thing looks awesome. Almost makes me wish I had the terrain to use one. It's all flat, open, treeless plains where I am

    I use a sheet of slick hard plastic with metal grommets called a deer sleigher. Works pretty well. I think i have used it at least 6 times or so.

    I use the same thing for elk and deer. Official name:
    DEER SLEIGH'R Magnum Game Sled
    You put the animal on it, tie it 'closed', then pull the rope and slide the animal out. The plastic is slippery making it easy to pull and the plastic is tough (thick) so it isn't really bothered by being drug along with a deer or elk in it.

    Super idea! Several times it would have real handy in nasty stuff. I always had to do'em the hard way, on my back. I now avoid places that might harbor a bull, LOL.

    I've used the deer sleighs and sleds and they help, if it's flat or downhill all the way. Not good if you have much uphill to traverse.

    May have to get one, so my sons can can winch me out of the mountains.

    Used one of these on a friend's Az antelope. It worked very well on the wet grass for the 1 1/2 mile tow. Wonder how they perform on rocky terrain?

    I pulled several mulies a couple of miles over pretty rocky terrain with mine. They scratched up a good bit, some deep, but didn't split or tear. They are tough and last for years. The moulded sleds track more evenly, because of the moulded in rails on bottom, but not as tough as the wrap around sleigh.

    We bone out our deer. When it comes to elk I always bring the cart. It can handle a whole cow elk and has done so six times that I can remember. Two people can move the cow quite easily. (if it were a bull I think I'd cut the animal in half) A rope loop in front is added for the second person.

    Made this when I taught auto shop 20 years ago. The sides are made from an old satellite dish. Rear handle can be remove easily for packing in vehicle. Rear wheels are quick release wheel chair hubs with heavy duty BMX spokes, rim and tires. Front swivel wheels are from harbor freight. Kids had a blast pushing the biggest kid in class up and down the hall trying to dial in the caster angle for front wheels so they didn't do the wiggle often seen with shopping carts. I also use it to move two bales of hay down a steep hill to our hay barn.
