    Game Carts have improved a lot. While an ATV is one way to go, a small light weight pull cart can make your life way easier.

    You shouldn't have pushed the animal, and come back the next day, after it's bled to death. The easiest way to get a buck out of the woods is with an ATV.

    This is the number 2 reason to always have toilet paper with you while hunting. You could have left a "breadcrumb" style trail to follow back. Or done it on the way out, so you could walk out alone, and still find that buck. there are lots of ways to navigate mentioned above, but getting yourself out safely is priority one, recovery of the animal is number 2.

    I would have shot it and let it alone never chase after them you tend to drive them when you do that. Give it plenty of time time bed down and bleed out

    Sounds like you were in a tough situation. Your best bet now is to learn from your mistake so you don't get stuck again.

    IF there is snow on the ground then definetly carry a sled of some sort in your truck..that way you can mark where the deer is, go back and grab the sled (and help) and then pull the deer out

    Check out a product called the game sled. Gamesled.com
    Much better than the one at Cabella's Bought mine in the fall at a sportsman show. It works great getting from the rough back the trail / truck. Carries in small and has safety features reflectors etc. The sled is completely flexible over blow downs, rocks and ground debris.
    Make the drag much easier and protected my 10 point trophy buck.

    Instead of struggling by yourself and wasting energy,make the trek back to get your friends. Several years ago, a friend told me how easy it is to drag a deer with three people.
    When one of us in our huntin' party gets a deer down, and it's too far from the truck,we always go in three's, is vastly different and so much easier.
    Try it!

    I would of waited for some family members or close buddies to come and help me find it. But if that is not an option, i would have brought a GPS unit and that would of helped. I guess the only other thing to do if the first two are not an option is that to tie a string or something around the trees that you pass so you can follow them bakck on the way back. As for a big buck, i would use a game cart if you had one and if not, then i guess dragging would have to do.

    You need to remember a GPS.
