This is after the drag. Only 250 meters to the road. Got on his track around 10 or 11 and jumped him a few times before he got caught back tracking. He's an 8 point that went 180.

Nice photo's guys!


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 .

neat series of pics from expanded archery in maine last year late november. Spined doe.






Seemed weird dragging her off to the side and climbing back up the tree hoping to shoot another in the next 45 minutes. Unlimited doe tags in expanded zones.


Dragging her out

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 my co-worker during one of our breaks..

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..

I remember those bucks RR just like yesterday. Did you tell your team mates about the bucks were double teaming on this year. I don't mind giving you a hand again as long as mine is bigger

Great pics boys. Definitely a couple of real smashers here, which can really make shooting the deer feel like the easy part after a few miles of dragging haha.
