I don't have a lot of photo's of me dragging and or of deer in the woods after the kill. Mainly just pics in the trunk of my car (which is all I had to hunt out of for many years)or after I got home, on the lawn, hanging up etc. I did eventually get a 1/2 ton and have a few pics of "bucks on trucks"!
I videotaped the wife and i actually following up after the shot on a buck, and then the dragging process. But it is from my old Hi 8 cam, and is only on VHS.
But here is a nice ten point that the wife was with me when I shot in 1988. 100 yd shot in hardwood at noon (I saw the sun reflect off his antlers). The first pic is where he dropped, the second is a pause in the very long haul). There was just a skiff of snow on the ground, so tough drag in leaves. And it was also very cold that day.
'96 , Just like Predator said it was a good year , season ended late , Nov 23rd and the bucks were moving . I got this one on the last day , 2 other nice bucks were taken that week in the same area . Took 2 1/2 hrs to bring him out . This is the last deer that I have lugged out this way , dragging is easier .
This picture was taken by a buddy who came along after I'd been dragging for 3 hrs , with his help it still took another 2 hrs for the two of us to get him out . Big deer 12pts and after 5 days of hanging on the pole he still went 207 lbs .
Here's a buddies buck that's almost to the truck . Shoulder harness and crazy carpet were efforts to try and find an easier way to 'get em out'.
Small buck being carried out on a 'Magaguadavic ATV' in another effort to make it easier .
Here's another of my buddy Dave's bucks , this one came out on the cart . Works pretty good , only trouble is it takes two and usually I'm by myself .
Well I've tried different ways of getting them out in an effort to try and find an easier way , and this is the easiest way that I've found . Get the boys to do it for you .
It took me almost 3 hrs of dragging to get that fella on the pole at the camp . The next day my boys were kind enough to drag him back out the trail to the truck .
It's hard work dragging your deer out of the woods , but I can't think of anything that I'd rather be doing in November .
Last years buck just before i had NBBUCKS start helping me..
This is after my co-worker and i dragged my 198 lb field dressed 2008 deer a couple hundred yards to the truck not dressed because we forgot a knife when we went in the woods after seeing him that morning cross a woods road.We decided to drag him instead of going to get a knife?Not sure if it was a great idea??
This is after i dragged my 2006 buck up out of a ditch he died in and just before i dressed him out.Nice dragging that day but sure glad i had people stop to help when i finally got him out to the truck.11 point 199 lb dressed weight.
Dad and i with my 06 buck at NBBUCKS house.I love sharing hunting stories with friends and family and have great pride when i seem to make my dad happy.He seems very excited when i get a deer and i picked him up on my way to NBBUCKS house that morn.
This is my 2002 buck and was my second longest drag of a deer i've had, if you look at ArcheryNuts aerial photo this deer was shot 100 yards from that lake.I shot him first thing in the morning and after giving him a few mins i started looking for sign, i only followed his tracks a hundred yards and jumped him.I drove out the road and called dad and him and uncle Guy came to help.It had been a hour and in after him we went , i jumped him four of five times though the softwoods surrounding the lake before i finally caught him in a large open stand of cedar.He was probably 80 yards away on the far side of this swamp and nearly out of site when i dropped him.
This is why dad and Guy were able to help me out, they both had tagged out on 8 pointers too that week.Here are all three 8's in the truck.Mines in the middle..
