My Version Of A DRV

Sat Nov 10, 2012 11:07 am

This is my version of a DRV (Deer Recovery Vehicle). The older I get the more I must rely on mechanization to do work for me. Every year you hear about hunters dying from heart attacks while dragging their deer. I know when I drag one it doesn't take long for my heart to feel like it will beat out of my chest. Kind of sucks getting old but it beats the alternative. :lol:

Any deer that I have to recover that I can't get to with the Cub I'll drag it behind my old ATV to a point that I can get the Cub to. I can drive the Cub into my shop where I can use a hoist to lift it out of the carrier.

It's always fun trying to come up with ways that I can use my Cub to make my life easier. This little tractor has paid for itself many times over saving me a whole lot of work.

Congratulations on a great harvest!

That's an awful nice looking Cub to be beating around in the woods.

My oldest son got one and like you I had to use the cub to drag it up the ravine and out of the woods, and then load it into the wagon.

Wow, that's a very nice buck. I hope to be hunting deer in about a week. Just squirrels so far this year.
I almost hope I don't get a big one because the last time I did, It was a tough job dragging it out a half mile in the dark back
to my camp. Like you said the ol ticker was just pounding. My dad used to hunt moose in Canada. They had a heck of a time
bringing the moose from deep in the woods in canoes, but they did it each year. He still always bags a deer each year up there
in Mi. Congratulations .

Looks great Rick, had the pleasure of using one of my cubs a few weeks ago to bring one in but not near as nice as your buck.
Congrats stick bow guy... :{_}:

No Jim, I didn't. My guess is that he'd weigh about 150-160 lbs. Wow, I84# field dressed is a big deer! If I shot one that big, I might need a bigger tractor. :lol: :lol:
