Ideas for getting a bear out of the woods...

I'm going on my first black bear hunting trip here in NY. I'm an experienced dear hunter but have never had to drag my game very far. Does anyone have any helpful hints on how to deal with getting a bear out of the woods without an ATV etc... We are currently considering butchering it at the site of the kill and just hauling the meat, head and hide out. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Need a cell phone and some guys standing by! Thumbs up
I have a big g ame sled. It's like a plasic sled with gromets all around the edge. You lay the bear in it. Weave rope through the gromets and pull it shut around the animal. On the end is a rope with a handle (similar to the handle that a waterskier uses) that is used to pull the animal along with. I will see if I can find a link to it. Works great but you still need help if you get a big bear.

Thats a long link but it works. That is not the exact one I'm talking about but the idea is the same. The one I'm talking about closes all the way around the animal.
