I wanted a simple portable sled for dragging Fallow out of places I can’t get the vehicle to. Upside it’s well made and the main strap is very sturdy. Downside the thing is like a coiled spring you can’t stretch it out flat without putting large stones on it. It’s then a wrestling match to get the deer on. The side straps are too short and overengineered with clamping buckles instead of Velcro I have replaced them with parrachord. Why can’t it just lay flat then you roll it up and put the belt round it to store it, I am considering staking it flat and pouring boiling water over it to reduce the auto curl
Trace Flexible Deer Sled
First stalking outing With the Trace flexible deer sled. Managed to take a fallow pricket and decided to use the sled as the ground was very wet and there was a reasonable distance to drag back to the vehicle.
Once I’d got the deer into the sled which was a bit of a battle, we were off.
The plastic is very slippery and stiff, it glides over grass, mud, gravel and ditches easily without tipping over with the carcass as free from contamination as when I loaded it.
I’d highly recommend it for ease of extraction and carcass hygiene.
Tested in a lowland woodland
It's a study thing and would do the job no doubt if I had managrd to drop a deer, but I did make the Mrs play a deer and dragged her round the local park in it, worked a treat. Buy one they are great
