    I use mine for hauling waterfowl decoys. I've also been thinking about getting a sled to pack out game.

    No wheels are allowed in wilderness areas whether it's on a bike, game cart, etc., and Wyoming also doesn't allow a NR to hunt big game without a guide in them either.

    The wilderness areas down here in sw colorado DO NOT allow any wheeled contraptions of any kind & no chain saws and other modern junk!

    A week ago today I was scouting in a Colorado wilderness area. I was surprised to see the sign specifically prohibiting game carts. It also prohibited hang gliders, so do get any ideas about using one of those to pack out either...

    I have a two wheeled game cart. It works great for recovery as long as there is not any deadfall or very rough terrain. It's also pretty tough to get through sage if it is thick at all. If you have a good trail it's awesome. Definitely better to have two guys on it in the steep stuff.

    As previously stated, it is the bomb for moving waterfowl decoys. You have to be careful that your cargo does not bounce over and rub on the wheel. I burned a hole in a slotted decoy bag that way. It would be a shame to do the same to a moose cape.

    One other note. Mine is way too noisy to take in while hunting. (others may not be) I always leave it back at camp and have to make a trip back to fetch it after I get a critter down. It's still a big help, but you may consider possibly having to make an extra round trip to get it. At one point I considered chaining it to a tree halfway to the hunting spot, but then I figured the unpredictable nature of hunting would take me off elsewhere and I would have to make an extra trip to retrieve it anyways.

    We used a nice game cart a couple years ago. It was my four wheeler pulling its own trailer behind it! Worked sweet on an old logging road. Pulled up to the elk loaded it whole and away we went. Of course this is the only time I got to use this "game cart", usually elk don't fall to close to the trail I thought about quartering it up and packing it out so I could take cool pics, then I thought, nah...

    We've used a homemade one wheel cart for years. With a brake on the rear you can really move the meat down the trail...that's the catch...if you are near a trail they're great.

    I have used a sled to haul out a full cow elk. Other than the parts that were uphill, downhill, or void of snow, it wasn't too difficult.
