I went and got the cheap $5 drag harness from Wally World and love it. Just make sure to tie the drag rope short so the deer's head is off of the ground, only about 3' long.
Ive got a deer cart and hauled a big doe and a button out of the woods this mz season. Tried to pull them up a big hill, stoped half way to rest and let go of the cart. I then watched my cart role back down the hill with my deer.
Always make sure you push the cart uphill!!

I work in the ski boat industry and I us an old ski rope around the neck. Still have to drag you just don't have to bend over and hurt your back.

I have had to use my arms on my jacket before. Got so dang hot didn't need the jacket and did need a way to get the deer out of there. Tied one arm around his neck and through the other over my shoulder. A lil' hillbilly ingenuity.

Shot a hog once back in the swamp. Dragging through cypress knees was a $*%#!

Cut a couple saplings into poles about 10' long and tied a crossbar to make an inverted A. Tied the hogs feet to the pole "handles" and tied the body onto the crossbar and drug it out like a wheelbarrow. Much easier but the point of the A would hang up on cypress knees. If I have to do that again, I would design it more like an H.

Works good on flat ground, dont know how much it would help on hilly terrain.

I carry a 8' piece of 1/2" dock rope and tie it in a circle, it works great and the bigger rope does'nt cut into your shoulder.

if you're hunting from a stand - or even if you're not - use your full body harness. I wear the harness, loop the "tree end" around the deer's neck, clip the carabiner just like attaching the harness to a tree, and start walking. sure it's still hard work, but a lot easier b/c my hands are free and my whole body is doing the work.

if you are dragging the deer by hind legs toward truck and someone tells you it is easier to drag the other way, keep heading toward the truck.haha
