I would like an idea or two on a good technique for dragging a deer by yourself. Do you use a rope? strap? How to you tie it? I assume you pull it head first like do. And if it is a doe do you grab it by the feet..... do you let the head drag or pick it up someway? I'm just looking for a better idea, because every time I drag one I think there has to be a better way.

Thanks in Advance,

I haven't tried my sled yet, but I hear good things about it.

The easiest thing to use is a rope with a handle. Go to Wal Mart or Bass Pro or Dicks or Academy Sports and look at the Glen Del (or something like that) deer drag. It's a handle with a loop of rope attached. Look at the picture on the package to see how you use it for either a doe or buck. Then, if you don't want to spend the money to buy it, go home and make your own. That's what I did.

I have used my seat of the pants safety harness a few times.
Wrap the rope around the deer's neck like you would the tree, then clip it on and take off.

I will add, I quit using it as I got to thinking, what kind of stress I am putting on everything and thought it might weaken the safety harness.


When you are alone and a really BIG deer is involved, there is no good way to do it.
I will say though that any type of "deersled" helps to reduce friction and does help.
Exactly why I bought a deer cart. \:D

Use a ski rope handle, same as the glen's deer handle and alot cheaper. Also if you can find an old Heavy duty poncho you can wrap the deer up in that to drag it out, slides better and keeps dirt and leaves out!

If a doe, we usually tie it's front hoofs above it's head making a handle with a rope and drag away.

The deer sled rolls up to about a 8" x 3 ft. diameter for easy transport.
I have a bow/gun pocket built into my pack and works great for carrying my sled if I want to. You could also just attach a string and carry it like a arrow quiver. Weighs next to nothing

I cut a stiff branch put it between the back leggs and tie a summit treestand rope to it and it is an easy drag . I do this since the 4-wheler is down and I sold the jeep with the winch on it.
