Hunter Shows Off Quick Hack To Make It Easier To Drag Out A Deer

Hunter hack for deer

Whatever works.

It’s the best time of year again, hunting season. It’s not an easy endeavor by any stretch of the imagination, so you got to love seeing little tricks and tips to help get you through it. I’m not sure a person will use this on any 200-pound buck, but hey, every little hack helps out.

And there’s no better animal to hunt than the white-tailed deer. Hunters all across North America gear up yearly in pursuit of a mature whitetail buck, with massive antlers and big ol’ body. They are some of the hardest to hunt, often being elusive for years, or even their whole life even when people know they are around.

As much work goes into a hunt, the real works starts after the shots are taken. Many deer run and get themselves deep into holes or the woods that are difficult to get out of. But there’s no need to worry, this guy has come with the tips and tricks of the trade.

He shows off his custom, built-in deer leg handle on the doe he is dragging out. The man slits a hole in one leg, and slides the opposite foot into it, creating a handle.

And away he goes, happy dragging.

A number of comments pointed out that if you drag from the front leg, the direction of the hair creates less drag, so that is something to keep in mind too. Either way, if you’re in a pinch, this might be something to keep in mind.

Also, why does this guy sound exactly like Hank Hill to me? I can’t be the only one hearing that…
