Found this video on my phone.  Forgot that I had it on there.  LOL  Thought it was hilarious seeing it again.

I have used one of those harnesses.  But there was snow on the ground and I cut my buck in half.  It worked quite well.

I have used them as well, even tied 2 people to one deer and it works.  I just thought it would be funny to let him try by himself.  Like I said, I knew the landowner would let me run in with a Quad or my truck.  I also had a deer cart in my truck that works extremely well.

If I didn't own a quad to pull it out, I'd be quartering that sucker up. Yep, it's a long way to the truck.....

When we were down south,, we drug a couple and used the game cart on a couple and I'll tell yah,, I swore if I stayed down there I was going to buy a good pack and start the gutless method to pack them out.. Even with the game carts when you shoot one in the bottom of a deep coulee it's a wicked chore.. If I go back south for a Muley hunt I will be going with a pack.

Those big old mules sure can be a pain. But with a game cart they sure turn in to a lot lighter critter.  Those drag holsters look great. Were did you get them?

The one I have, my wife got me for Christmas 10 years ago so it has to be from WSS.  LOL

A cheap $10 plastic tarp reduces the friction a whole bunch more and its disposable in the end as well.

"disposable"?  Don't you mean reusable and recyclable?

By the time you get back to the truck I really dont find much use for a tarp with holes in it and covered in blood unless its still good enough to haul something else. Its light and i always carry one in my pack .
