my father recently bought a gamesled from a white tail expo. i was wondering if anyone else has used one with any succes. the idea makes sence but it may be awhile before i know for myself. its a consealable light weight deer dragging unit.
the sled im talking about is more like a super tarp material. you can carry it out with you during your hunt. its consealable. its supposed to be awesome for bear too because it gives you something to drag it by. i probably will never know as i have never even seen a bear in the woods. they have a web site its gamesled.com i belive. there is even a picture of three dudes dragging a 500 plus pound animal on one in africa. http://www.gamesled.com
I have used for years a Kids Plastic snow sled. Try and find one that is the longest and the most sturdy. It is great for trugging game out of the woods even on leaves or pine needles, snow a plus. I bought a hard plastic black one that I have used for the last 12 or so seasons. I would check with your better snow boarding places they may have a better one. The one I have has holes along the sides and I attache rope to them and I tie the deer in snug so that even if it turns over it can be righted and the animal is still secured in it. I saw a fellow once who had a very sturdy one made for this purpose but was unable to find the address on the internet. Good Luck. Lou
