Once you shoot a deer, how do you load into your vehicle?

    Usually drag the deer or elk back to camp on a sled drag made from a piece of conveyor belt behind the 4-wheeler and then use a hoist to put it in the air and back the truck under it. Otherwise lift with strong backs. Also have used the high bank side of a road or steep hillside to back the truck to and keep a 3' x 6' piece of 5/8 plywood in the bed of the truck for use as a ramp.

      I use my 4-wheeler with a Drag Bag to camp, with lots of camp members are more then willing to help load the Deer or Hog in to our New Camp Cooler.

            Well the one deer I've loaded, I dragged the deer out using an ice-fishing sled with (probably any short plastic sit in toboggan would do). Then just dragged it up an atv ramp into the back of the truck. You could easily replace the atv ramp for a couple 2x4's or 6's and it would be a cheap way to get your deer loaded up.

              I wheel the deer or bear out of the woods with the deer cart. Then we made a wooden ramp and take the cart right up tailgate into the truck bed. We untie the bear so the state can weigh him at the check-in station. Very simple and works like a charm.

                Its really not that hard. I've hung a 300 pound buck by myself, and I dragged MY 260 pounder about 2 kilometers to the road. I'm kind of a big lad so if the deer is lighter than me, I can generally throw it around a little. That said, one of the easiest ways to get it in the back of a truck is to put its head and forelegs onto the tailgate, pick up his arse and PUSH.

                That said, hit the gym. Having an extra 20 pounds of muscle helps, especially if you're in an area with big deer

                  I drive a Ford Excursion right now and it's not easy to get a big bodied buck into the back. So I tie the deer to my trailer hitch, find a drop off, get the buck on top of the drop off, and get the back of the vehicle even with the hill (a good sized drop is required). When you get there I grab him and it's easy then to do, so I just drag him into the back.
