AdamCA said in An old Warrior goes down:
Kentucky Fisherman he ran a total of about 50-75 yards in a semi circle. That hay bale was actually about 25 yards behind my blind. Even though he was relatively close it was still a long hard drag, first we had to go slightly up hill and then through a cry creek bed and he weighed more than I do and I’m about 215.
Congrats on your buck.
The older I get, the more I look for new ways to avoid dragging deer. We have found that small ice fishing sleds make the job of hauling out deer much easier on both grass or snow cover.
Add a wooden T-handle to the sled rope and two guys can pull a big deer with relative ease. The sleds also pull easily behind a 4-wheeler.
Added bonus: once you have field dressed the deer, put the carcass back in the sled and load up the whole package to keep from getting your truck bed or SUV interior all bloody.
