I had it in my mind to go the remotest part of this public piece where no hunter in their right daggum mind would drag any deer out of. Sure enough, found tags and a big ol' tree stand. Haha! I actually did laughed about it, because it took a whole lot of passion, forethought and energy to drag this stand there, let alone get there on foot. High five to the dude who did that. In your circumstance, it can't hurt to consider both remote and close-to-the-road/overlooked spots to give you options. This year when I ground hunt, I plan to incorporate a mountain bike in getting to overlooked areas along roads and into more remote areas. Now what to do when I actually kill a deer? LOL! That's a good problem to have, and nothing a whole lot of sweat and cussing can't fix.
Google search deer on bicycle. There is a group of guys from Minnesota it believe that ride their bike back in to hunt and when successful they place the field dressed deer onto the seat, front legs and head one the steering wheel, & hind legs tied to keep them out of the spokes. Then they walk the bike/deer out. Looks like it works pretty slick. I am keeping an old mountain bike around to hopefully try some day.
Haha! I found this on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZhqMll8awg Brilliant!
Yes!!! That is exactly the video I had 1st seen. I dont know that I would ride the deer like they do, but it would definitely be easy to walk the deer our on a bike.
