    Done it a number of times when I was young and dumb, now I just take the choice cuts. Most of my deer are shot way too far from a vehicle to be able to carry them like that.

    And a lot cleaner, carrying the deer usually results in you and your clothing covered in blood, no matter how carefully you tried to get it all out before carrying.

    Taking the head off and draping it with orange if you want to stay safe on public land!

    Thats how they do it in Ireland to. When I went to hunt fallow deer, I couldn't believe it the first time he did that!

    No where you or I typically hunt. I like staying alive.

    I’ve done it with a blacktail deer on Kodiak. If you think you have all the blood out, you don’t. My day pack was covered in blood. Looking back I’m not sure it was a good idea since mr. grizzly may have wanted it too. I wouldn’t have a quick way to drop it.

    Seen it in video before but never done it. I use a Kawasaki 750 Brute Force to my myself and the deer.

    I saw this previously in one of Nathan Foster's books. ATV(s) cannot get to slopes where some of these animals are hunted. This is virtually the best and maybe the only way to pack out the meat. With the hunting season being year around there is not the number of hunters in the bush as there is during established hunting seasons in the U.S. and Canada.
