Get Out... Buck and Bear

Unread postby Singing Bridge » Wed Mar 10, 2010 12:04 pm

Public land hunters, what's your favorite method for getting your buck or bear back out to your truck? Mostly being alone when I hunt, I often find myself a long ways from the truck and with no help around....

A trusted friend. A boat if near water.
A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

Calling Greg (AC Rider) or Mike (Arrowbender) and spending the entire evening, typically until 1-2am, dragging them out.

Seriously I still owe Arrowbender a serious deer hauling, but I think I'm paid up with AC Rider now ;) ;)

James,

Take it easy on arrowbender. He's no spring chicken. He's pushing 50, you dont want to give him a grabber way back in the swamp.

Deer cart for me ;) Got one stashed in the woods way back in one of my honeyholes ;) I must say though a sled works great late season on snow!

Quartering them up and packing them out is by far the easiest for me (wasn't able to confirm if it's legal here or not :?) but I now have a sled I'm going to try out this fall.

Man, I love the idea of having help. Most of my spots I'm no where near someone I trust to help though. I have a sled that works pretty well for deer, I don't know about bear though. Can't get a quad to where I hunt either :x

I dont know any easy ways to get them out of most of the places I hunt. A cart wouldn't work. A sled would be tough to get thru thick stuff and they would just be tipping over on the uneven ground. I just tie on a stick and start pulling and pulling and pulling and pulling. They don't come easy or often so I actually enjoy the drag. I never ask for help because I hate to show people where I hunt.

Now that is funny!!!!!!! I think arrowbender even saw some humor in it. I sure hope so!!!!!! I laugh cuz I'm over 50 and it is no easy feat any more!!!!! Even when it's a doe that may be a whole lot smaller than a buck as I seem to be good at getting!!!!!

I usually worry about getting them out after the fact, but I do keep a cart in the vehicle just in case. If the woods is really thick I use a 1 wheel cart that gets through the thick stuff easier without hangups....for more open woods the 2 wheeler comes out.

If you guys (bridge and Magic) wont show a good friend that is willing to go in a he!! hole with you, then like AC said cutem up and take'em out in pieces.

I remember hunting elk by myself in CO in 1998. A friend of a friend kept asking me what I was going to do if I killed one. I said I will worry about that next. But clearly in my plan, there was a knife involved.

This was Idaho 2006. Yes, cutem up and getem out
