DELUXE DEER DRAG HARNESS
by Julie Hughes
Hauling deer out takes tremendous effort.....
I am always looking for items to make my hunt a little easier when it comes to the heavy work. I’m not a big woman and when it is necessary I can drag a deer for a short distance and I can even get one into the back of a truck on my own, but trust me, it’s comical to watch.
Several years ago when I started guiding, I realized the potential for long distance drags and I found an awesome product. This drag harness, although still needing some modification for a woman’s comfort, makes dragging much easier on every part of your body. It puts the majority of the work into our strongest muscles... the legs.
I have put this harness to the test many times and the only issue I have with it, is the way the shoulder straps dig into my shoulders. But there is a relatively easy fix: Go to WalMart and pickup some sheepskin seatbelt straps, and wrap them around the shoulder straps for more comfort.
I would also suggest that the harness is not left in any kind of weather for a long period of time. I did have one that was left in the winter weather for several months and rotted through enough that it could not hold up to the weight of dragging a 250 to 300-pound mule deer.
This harness is usually about $5.00 and is a great, inexpensive addition to any hunt pack.
Live Simply. Love Generously. Care Deeply. Speak Kindly. And Keep God in Your Quiver!
