LIVE From The Woods 2019 - Lets hear stories and see some pictures!


Recommended Posts



I’ve made a “deer back pack” before with does but never a buck. I cut into the knee joint on the front legs so I can break the leg and then I make a cut behind the Achilles’ tendon on the rear legs like you do for hanging a deer. Then I put the part of the front leg I broke through the cut near the Achilles to make a strap. Sounds more complicated than it is. I wish I had a picture but I only do it when I’m by myself and have a ways to go. Works well. Would work on a buck too but Im not that ambitious and just go get a atv or truck in that situation.

I usually don’t gut them in the field either so I don’t really end up very bloody. I have a lot of coyote issues so I put my gut piles way out of the way of my good bedding and feed locations.

Here’s a pic I found online of the process.

Well maybe I wasn’t stupid for sitting through the frozen rain after all. He came sneaking out at about 4:15, I was seriously thinking about quitting a few minutes early as I am leaving for a work tri

He got the pass in bow and then I shot a smaller one.   No pass tonight.  Food it was.  Culver was right, the Barnes expanders tip them over quick. And for Nomads benefit no ATV.   I dragged him 30yds

Love it when a plan comes together!  Buck Down! A solid two year old for here. Passed on two smaller ones before this one came in to 10 feet from the ground. Shot taken at 20 yards. Will post sto

I must admit my above post was somewhat tongue in cheek. More seriously, I would consider making a travois (see picture below) in the field, rather than just dragging the carcass, for a real long haul. Another idea is from @turkeyfeathers. In a post a while back he talked about used a heavy-duty tarp-like piece of fabric cut from a deflated golf dome as a drag carpet, if you will.

In hindsight this probably would've been the way to go. I tried making the deer burrito with a tarp that I brought. It wasn't heavy duty though and ended up testing during the drag. It was better than nothing, but barely. It kept the gut cavity clean more than anything else.

Dumpster dive any big store for old exterior ad signs...worked great. “Sew” shut the burrito and tie drag rope to head/neck ...easy peezy

Good thought, but if I don't see them in the bedding, then I am thinking they will be coming from different area into plot.  Time get moving somewhere!

Snowed all morning then the wind kicked in around 9 it sounded like a plane was over head. Couldn’t find a fresh track so I back tracked an old one damn mountain goat went up some crazy steep area’s. I had to back out it was to slick for this fat old man. Going to give that area a break and hunt somewhere else tomorrow. Looked like some of the camps where packing out for the weekend. Only four days left.
