Well, this past x-mas the wife purchased me a deer hauler from cabelas, THE two 16 inch hard rubber tires will last a life time... and the frame is heavy duty as well ,and i'm tellin ya it has come in handy so far i've hauled firewood around the yard with it to test out .So if you can't afford a quad , then this hauler is the next best thing well balanced and you can haul alot of items not just for hunting . It sells for around $120.00

They are handy indeed Dennis. My brother made him one from looking at the pictures in Cabela's and it works great. He even built his to be able to use the tailgate of his truck to leverage it in when he has a deer on it.

I have a tree lounge tree stand. It is one of the very heavy early models. They have a set of wheels one can buy but being a bit scottish I figured I could make a set far cheaper than the 70 plus dollars they wanted. I have a 2 wheel garden cart and took the wheels and axle from it and found a couple pieces of pipe and flat steel had Eric weld them together and bolted them on my tree lounge and it makes an excellent deer carrier. Now I just switch the wheels from one to the other.

Plan on getting one myself. We have a 4 wheeler but some areas we hunt they aren't allowed. A cart would sure beat dragging any day.

I've been using a cart I bought at Bass Pro a few yrs back..paid for itself undoubtly! I hunt certain public lands by boat here in Tx, go up river AWAY from the crowds. I load the cart(folded up) in the boat. If I arrow one-I take a walk to get the cart. Not to mention, the cart makes hauling 50# bags of corn alot easier ! Also use it to haul my gear(stands&feeders) into or out of the woods.

I picked up the Mag Hauler from Cabelas which is probably the same one you have Dennis. First trip out we put it to the test as we had 3 does and a buck which we figured was about 520 lbs. It worked great and I'm glad I bought it...

I've been kicking around the idea of getting one but with 5 years of eating tags I couldnt justify it. This season I got a doe so now Im thinking the jinx has lifted and may consider it. Do you think you can haul a black bear on one of these??

personally I dont see why not if you get the right one Ive seen a couple that only have a 200 pound limit you would have to make sure that you get one that will handle the heavier weights
I believe in fillet and release!

I once told my dad we should get one, to which he replied: "We don't need one; you work excellent as one." :doh:

I guess it was luck that the doe I shot last year was only 30 yards from the road so the truck could just drive to it.


It's a good thing I've been :barbell: :barbell: this summer for baseball if this fall I happen to get one non- accesable by vehicle.

Jason once had to drag a deer around 2 miles. Luckily it was mostly down hill. Felt bad that I shot it. It was shortly after my bypass. One of those carts would have sure been nice right then. :yes:
