      Don Thomas’s article in the previous edition showed how to carry a small deer by cutting slits in the fore legs and stuffing the hind legs through them.  He suggested holding on to the hind feet if they start slipping out.  I learned that you should also make a slit in each hind leg, then push a stick or large twig through this slit.  This locks the hind leg in position so it can’t back out.

      Kees, I think I might have better luck getting the deer to give me a ride back to my suv. It’s an interesting method for someone with strong back and good legs. I’m getting to where I’m going to start cutting and packing out. Heck, last year I had to call my buddy to get the deer loaded. The deer are getting bigger in these parts and that’s true but I’m also less interested in a sore back.
      Post a photo or two of your method. I’m interested to see it in action. Thanks! Dc

      No photos, but look at Don’s photo of how the rear leg comes through the front one.  Then, instead of holding on to the rear leg so it doesn’t slip out of the slit (in the front leg) run a short stick through the rear leg so if it does slip back the stick will keep it from coming out of the slit in the front leg.

      Clear as mud?

      Nowadays i am ( like David) in the cut em up and pack out my game in parts mode myself . Especially if i am having to haul it any distance . Although this might be real handy for small deer in grizzly country —
