Excellent! That’s livin
That's the conundrem, do you gut and quarter and do four easy trips or just tough it out and get out of there in one. Great result on the deer!. The river was very high so I couldn't get my Viking across to get him out so I had to drag him about 1 mile and take him across the river on a 3x3 foot trolley. What a pain in arse. Told my wife to not allow me to hunt any more if the river is too high to cross with the Viking, I’m getting too old for that long of a drag anymore. I never got out for rifle season because I had Covid, but I was blessed with 2 nice deer for the freezer after a total of 2:10 of sitting time. I spent more time getting them out of the woods LOL.
I tuff it out and bring it out whole. It’s not bad if there is snow on the ground for making dragging easier. But most of the time I have been able to get across with a quad and trailer but quads are sold so this was my first hunting season with my Viking. The doe was easy because I could go get her with the Viking. River was too high when I got the buck to cross. Too bad it wasn’t the other way around because the doe was smaller and close to the river, the buck was as far back as I can go on the property.That's the conundrem, do you gut and quarter and do four easy trips or just tough it out and get out of there in one. Great result on the deer!
