    Hunt on the roads and drive right up to it.

    Get the sled. Works better than a cart in the snow, and still better than dragging in no snow, plus it keeps it cleaner. Probably easier to store as well.

    I am a fan of using a cart. Once you have used on you will never want to go back to dragging a deer out again. In my case I built mine out of a couple of mountain bike tires and some EMT. I don't know how to weld so I bolted it together. My cart also doubles as a ramp to help me get the deer into the back of the truck.

    I like it a lot better than what you can buy as it is much higher off of the ground. I have a set of plans for what I built. If you want them drop me a PM. If I could weld I would have used the forks off of the bicycles to support the wheels instead of the steel rod and what ever you do do not paint it black. DOH It makes it very hard to find in the dark if you need to leave it on a trail. I have since added reflective tape to the cart.

    If you look closely there is enough space for me to step into the cart before the first rib and that makes it much easier to handle in the woods.
