sled....barrow.

"Tip,Get a light wheel barrow with decent hand grips, them old black ones pull the arms out of you.

I have put 3/4 Tonne weight on a barrow and we moved her. Barrows are very hardy."


WTF ......

You are on the wrong forum for construction !
<see magpie forum>


I cut the bottom of one of those plastic caged large square drums (@50£) approx 8' high from bottom with a rope for a handle, works great downhill and holds dirt ,blood ect

I was using the weight to state how TOUGH they are, as if you drop the barrow it will still be able to work.
The barrow fits into the back of most small vans and pickups.
It is cheap or even free!
A barrow is light and can be pulled Up or Down hill!

put the axle through a tube/pipe and weld the pipe onto your cart.
the idea already posted about using the base of a caged plastic drum is spot on, just weld your pipe and axle onto the bars across the bottom.
should work well enough, but attaching MTB wheels to a cross axle could be tricky enough, or else i just lack imagination(most likely).

7 foot of webbing , i use a horses girth strap the saddle maker sowes it up for me .A inch ring also off the saddle maker . 7 foot of lite climbing rope .

wrap the webbing around your shoulders like a rucksack ,bend the back let the ears back and pull .

once you get the hang of it you can drag a big hybrid stag on several hinds , suffering is in the mind .

That WP is earning his keep JW. Must be feeding venison scraps.

A drag rope and the will to pull it.
Cut sleds from a plastic drum, attach drag rope and off you go. Low tech but they work.

I have a saint bernard who is as strong as an ox but if I attached a weight like that to him he would lie down in protest!

In regards to the op you seem to talk as if there will be a few of ye shooting?? If so what I do is get a stick (handle of a brush or cut one in the field) and pierce it through the two back legs of the deer.

All you need then is a person on each end of the stick to pull!

There is a few factors involved in dragging .number one is fitness .
number two is .
A few years ago i was on the hill with john lambert one eve early in september ,it was more a stretch of the legs that a hunt .

any we spotted two groups of deer i stalked one and john stalked the other .i stalked into a few hybrids ,there was a sika nobber among them ,i reckoned i would kill this lad for the table .
any way lite was just gone as i got into them ,i found a lovely rest and waited a while to see whats what . the animals were moving down hill away from me as is usual in the eve .no sign of my nobber ,i gave a few moments still no sign so i gave a few hind calls ,up came a stags head over the tall heather ,not much of a yolk so "whack" under the chin with the 243 .

i sent my dog to give her a run , fu@k me as i got to him, his body was huge ,a bloody hybrid ,this was just after 7pm .it was half 9 and i getting him to the pick up point in black dark two hours dragging in the dark ,in tall heather and gorse .god bless head lites

lambert laughed for most of the way home .

the next day in work ,i could hardly move again john called and laughed .so number two is bring a friend .

Fella who used to post on here - not seen him about much in the past while. He had a deer, or two, in a wheel barrow in a pic he put online.

Be a waste of time around here, the bog wouldn't be having it. Mind you if the ground is suitable then fair enough if it works.

(Still prefer the quads myself).

It's always handy to let folk know where you are going stalking; and that their services might be required at a later stage.

Sometimes drag to nearest road, then ring mate to collect you; and drop you back to your car.
From there you can drive back to the spot where you were.

Remembering to have Marked your spot.
Tying a plastic bag to a tree is a good trick as if it rains it will still be there as opposed to a piece of tissue tied to a tree which might fall off if it gets wet!

One of these might be handy, the Civ Def or Fire service periodically get rid of them, you might get one for nothing!
Tie a harness to it that you also got for nothing as it also was out ogf date and you have a sled you can drag!
