    was wondering how do you guys get your animal out, if you cant drive right close to it? I like to use a pack frame, lot less work then draggin by a long shot.

    As we can't bone out and pack, drag. If the fall rains have brought up the rivers enough I can canoe them out after a reasonable drag.

    I rarely archery hunt more then 200 - 300 yards from where I can pull a truck up to so its kill, track, clean, drag for me.

    What I have found very useful is using my harness rope as a drag rope, it distributes the weight pretty well and makes dragging easier then holding it with one hand and your bow with the other.

    I only drag as a last option. If I have friends in the area I call them to come drive my deer out on their atv. Also there is no shortage of help when the time comes for dragging.
