Rubber on the sole of my boots get me in nad out of the woods no matter the distance. If I am fortunate to harvest an animal a little more force is applied to that same rubber and my treestand harness aids in hauling the critter.

One day I would like to go on a hunt in which the travel by horseback and pack train. That would be awesome!

You guys can keep the 4 wheelers:)

I wasn't gonna include this picture of my high-tech transportation and deer retrieval system for fear that you guys would be jealous and accuse me of upstaging, but here it is anyway:

TLF that's a pretty fancy drag. I usually just braid some local vegetation together to form a rope and use that or drag by the antlers!

Odds are, unless you get in quite abit of saddle time before you go on that pack-in trip, you will still spend a lot of time walking.

I use to have a T frame I welded up out of 1" tubing and welded bicycle front forks to each side on the back. With the bicycle wheels it pulls fairly easy. It started off with a long arm and used to pack my 12' John boat to back waters then was shorten to use as deer drag, and now I shorten alittle bit more and use it for a bank fishing rig, now holds my 120 gal cooler with tubes welded to hold rods straight up.

Thank you. It's been a real work horse for me.
