I took my old summit harmess that was recalled and sewed a d-loop on the back, attached the leg strap to the d-loop. Put it around the deer's neck and this way it uses my back and legs to pull it with ease and safety without tiring as bad.

The deer cart works well if the terrain is relatively smooth (a logging trail is pretty ideal).

I think the tarp would probably be a good idea too.

I've used a wheel barrow once on a long, narrow logging road. It was harder to manage though, because the weight wouldn't distribute very evenly and it wanted to tip over sometimes. It was still easier than dragging normally, though.

Although I've never tried it, it might be a good idea to find some water from a nearby creek and douse the shoulders and ribcage area on the ground-side of the deer before dragging it. I would think this would reduce friction somewhat with the wet fur on the vegetation.

Just a thought.

My safety harness works great, drag to the nearest road and get the truck.

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.

He is right this thing works great. You can make one using PVC pipe and a rope.

I always keep a 12-15 foot piece of mountain climbing rope (about 8000 lb strength) in my pack. Tie a loop in one end and use it as the strap to secure my harness to when stand hunting. Put the tag end through the loop and around the tree, then tie another loop the other end to secure the carabiner on the harness to. After shooting a deer the rope is for dragging. Either loop it around my waist or cut a 12-18 inch long stick and use it as a handle as someone else alluded to. main thing is to get the deer's head off the ground. Main thing on the rope is to get it big enough (the one I have is between 3/8 and 1/2 inch in diameter) that it doesn't cut your hands when pulling on it. Parachute cord is too thin.

Just depends on the terrain and how far you are from the truck. Like everyone else says, the deer cart is pretty good in open smooth terrain, but packing out is the only way to go in rough terrain.
