Getting the bear out

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.
