Ratchet straps.  Don't forget those.

Maybe lengthen the rope add a better handle and reinforce where the rope attaches. That may void the warranty, but i don't think that'd matter.

I figure I'm going to run the drag rope through the four handles and drag from there , I think the small pull rope is probably useless and would rip through the plastic with too much weight !

Good idea...I always just strap the deer to the dragging implement and the pull rope around the head-not to the drag implement. Taking the time to make sure it is secured adequately saves time in the end

I just bagged a large black bear in Maine on Tuesday. The outfitter uses a jet sled to drag bears out of the thick Maine woods and has used them for years. We dragged my bear out on one and I can't imagine how hard it would have been without one.       valoroutdoors.com

I use to haul my deer with a Tobaggon sled until my son's bought me a Jet Sled . A pic of my Tobaggon sled and one of the Jet Sled . You can haul a couple deer with the Jet Sled .

That photo is quite an endorsement of Jet Sled. I can only hope to have that (2 deer at the same time) problem. Ha.

I use the cart and the sled sometimes when I’m hunting or trapping. Obviously the sled works better in the snow , whereas the cart works better on bare ground.15CED2A4-D4C1-481B-997D-D3FFFE177EB5.thumb.jpeg.20e52c533f0e9713c3054d672d7991cc.jpeg

I rather have an atv , but I can’t justify buying one with nowhere to ride it. Even her Imperial Majesty gave me the okay.

What size would you get for deer only

Good question. I have been wanting to get one, also, then I saw the size choices and thought, I have no idea, lol.

I have a metal deer cart I never use...too much work to walk back to get it to just walk back to use it. I feel the sled would be the same. The “taco” is strapped to my climber and always ready to be stuffed!!!!

May try one . Carts suck, can’t fit a decent sized deer on one , balance point sucks ,unless you like dragging it hunched over ,the wheels blow , bog down in soft ground , forget about plowed ground , and it’s a struggle pulling it over logs . The only good thing is the walk to get its , a nice break from dragging ,then its a struggle all over again .

A Christmas tree cart with pneumatic tires may be the ticket . A rope , time and  stubbornness has worked for me for 40 some years ,although the time required has increased a bit .

I found the Jet Sled to be great at my spot in Geneseo . The woods are wet in the winter doesn't drain and hold the water The walls of the sled help keep the deer from getting soaked .

I always thought that a cart would work well for me where I hunt. Never gave consideration to the shortcomings you mentioned about the wheels. 

I figured cart for no snow, sled for snow. I am tired of dragging and having some “dirty” meat that I have to toss. Saw this as a possible answer. 

Glad little squirrel will be hunting with me. He’s gonna know the joys of the drag!

Even if you can't get the cart all the way to the deer most places I hunt I have a short drag to a logging road or good trail

Most places I hunt I have a short drag, just getting lazier as I get older.
