        Del, the best dear drag I’ve ever used and still have is a shoulder harness that has 2” straps and a bid “D” ring in the center of the back to tie a rope to. Tie one end to the head or horns lean into it and away you go and you’re using equal force with your legs. I can haul a deer faster and easier with it than two people dragging the old way by grabbing the horn with one hand.

              A little sweat unless I can manuver my 4-wheeler to it. I try and shoot deer that are in the open but that never seems to happen.

                buckhunter has the right idea! Except im on the shorter end of the stick. In other words my father still uses me. But its ok, I understand once you get over 50 you shouldnt have to do manual labor, thats why we have escalators on our stands that way the old folk dont have to climb!

                  Iven never used anything but the good old fashioned rope. Being younger I can still hack it and its gets the blood pumping. For the bigger ones I cant drag myself Ill call or go get help.

                    I use a 4-wheeler to get them to the truck. I've got a deer drag that I've modified to get them to the 4-wheeler. I hunt the thick stuff so I usually have anywhere from 75 to 200 yards to drag before I can get to the 4-wheeler. I can't remember who made the drag but it is a double harness over the shoulder blaze orange drag that came with a small ring and light weight rope. I broke the rope the first year and bent the ring the second so I replaced it with heavier duty stuff. I cinch the deer up and take off slow and steady.

                        Spence thats a good idea. The last three years I've looked in stores for those 5 ft. plastic sleds we'd use on snow but it seems they've gone out of style. Every year I plan on using a stick with a 10 ft rope tied on each end and to the deer and then get inside, sort of like pushing a lawn mower, but I'll be damned if I don't leave the rope in the truck.

                            I drag it out with my drag rope or if it's too big I find a couple stong sticks and make a travois.

                                Dream on boys. We've all seen an actual cold-blooded murder take place on TV, and the kneeling cop will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law....

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
