Heads up for those in the market for a dedicated deer recovery/loading sled.
Bushwear are now selling the Trace Big Game Sled with optional stainless steel runners for £79.99
This is identical to the large size 'Wildwanne Schlittenform' I purchased from Frankonia Jagd, after having my adapted plaster's bath slip off the loading ramp and nearly do me a serious one, and which retails at a more competitive price of 59.95 euro - but must be included in a minimum order value of 100 euro before they will ship within the EU (good excuse to browse their catalogue!).
It's a rugged bit of kit that can be towed behind a quad etc. and will take a large stag of up to 200kg. There are accessories available from Frankonia - cover, quad towing bracket, universal clips - which hopefully Bushwear will in time consider selling as well.

I have no association with any of the businesses, just a very satisfied user of the product.
