Nicely done, Doug... :thumbs:  Tip of the hat!

In my youth I once helped carry a deer that way...

Darn thing swung side to side and gathered momentum till it nearly pulled us off our feet...

After that I had a one wheel cart that nearly kilt me...

Now I have a 2 wheel cart

Then I moved to NE TN where hunting access is nearly nil unless you're spry enough to hump the "sudden" National Forest...pretty steep country for an ole man who'd have to hunt a lone... which I don't find that smart

One old boy claimed they found a way around that... they got the pole tight up into the body cavity (deer) and lashed it tight to the pole... hard to duck under trees with legs sticking up, but memory doesn't serve me if they sawed them off above the knee once lashed or not...

Wouldn't wanna do that to a bear's legs

Don't delay! One day you wake up and you're 70 and busted up... next day you wake up dead, or so I hear!
