    Get yourself a toboggan. Cheap plastic kids toboggan. Cheap light weight. Drill a bunch of holes along the edge on both sides. Dress your deer in the field, roll it into the toboggan. Use some parachute cord to lace the deer in the bottom like lacing up a shoe. Make sure the deer is head to the back and butt forward. Cut a couple three-four of pieces of old garden hose. In the front of the sled drill a couple of holes through the edge and the 6 inch or so hose. Run a rope down through the edge and the hose and out the bottom Slide the rope through foot or two of hose and around the other side of the sled. Run the rope through a hole in another piece of hose and up through a hole in the edge of the sled. Split a piece of hose length wise. Run the rope ends up through a hole in the hose so the corved side goes against the rounded edge of the sled. Tie the rope ends in stop figure eights. If you don't use something to bush these drag rope holes, the will tear out.

    Feed stores sell toboggans for feeding stock designed to be pulled behind vehicles. These tend to be a bit heavy, but work man pulled also. The plastic toboggan is lighter. There are also some roll plastic deer draggers that are modified version of military field stretchers.

    The most important thing to know, is have some way to tie the critter in the sled. They do roll on side hills. The kids toboggan will last several seasons
    Great minds think alike! I have one of the large plastic toboggans that they use up north to take supplies out to their ice fishing shanty's. Put some thick aluminum across the front inside and out, then made a harness that hooks to the atv hitch. Stainless U bolts along the side to tie ropes to.
    Makes getting elk off the mountain much easier and its a fun thing behind the 4 wheeler with the grandkids in the grass slingshotting them across the yard.
    Back in my day we used the big giant trash can lids to do the same thing behind three wheelers.

    I have used the wheeled carts in past, that is why I use a toboggan instead

    The game carts certainly aren’t ideal for every situation. Next time around (hopefully my oldest sons elk) It will be a quartering and pack out.

    Agree, there is a place for a wheeled cart and a place and time for a toboggan. I have both.
