Carrying Game Yourself
Deer hunting trick for carrying out a buck by yourself whole. My father showed me how to put the front legs through the back legs to carry a deer like a backpack. This will only work for deer or antelope because anything larger will be obviously too heavy. First disembowel the deer. Do not take the hide off, as you are trying to keep the meat clean from dirt if you fall down or have to drop the deer-pack in an emergency or to rest. You can take the hide off when you get back to your camp. On the foreleg at the lower joint you slice down opposite sides of the front leg at the point about an inch above the lower leg joint on the sides.
Only two slices. Being careful to not slice the tendons that hold the leg together. The slice needs to be about four to five inches long. You then disjoint each foreleg to the side. The foreleg will turn into a "T". To complete the deer-backpack you slice through the hide where the large tendon is on the hind leg careful not to slice through the tendon and only large enough to push the foreleg through. About two niches maximum. You then shove the sliced foreleg through the slice on each hind leg with each foreleg. You now have the deer pack. Now, sit the deer up on his butt and slip your arms through the leg-straps and then stand up. This method for carrying a deer may not be the most comfortable, but is effective and you are able to carry the animal over moderately rough ground. You do have to be strong to carry a whole deer by yourself. You will also get blood on you but that is inevitable really. Since we're not smart, we gotta be tough. I hope this tip was interesting and practical.
Please cover the deer with hunter orange for obvious reasons.
