A rigid "plastic" sled like an otter or similar brand works better than anything I know of . I put eye bolts along the sides and tie the bear down with rope in the sled. If the sled turns over, the bear stays in the sled. They float if you cross water too. If you do alot of dragging, there is a cable winch unit that attaches to a chainsaw in place of the chain bar. It holds approx. 125 feet of cable. They cost around $800.00. It does not sound so expensive when you need it.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
