Not so long ago I thought I'd be creative and try and make my own deer drag sack. I posted a thread on here and was contacted by Rod (rodp) and he was giving me advice as to what material to use and we discussed a design.
Rod knows his material! and today I received from Rod a drag sack designed and made by him. He did this for me, without me asking and without asking for a penny, including even for posting it to me (I have to admit when I got the package I knew it was going to be good just by how it was sent to me). This was an act of generosity that seems typical of people on this site and I cannot thank enough.
I have attached some pictures to show the finished article...it is nothing like what I would have done myself and is really well made and thought out.
The sack has been designed to create almost a body bag type cavity, the Velcro is heavy duty and is perfectly measured so it fits precisely, designed with cold fingers in mind and to create a sterile environment to transport carcasses in. The buckles are there to again close the sack up again to reduce size and also easy to use if hands are cold and saves faffing with bits of rope or string. The sack material seems very durable, I see it lasting a long time. The straps to drag are strong canvas and measure approx. 250 cm in length and I feel negate the need for any dragging aid. The whole thing is so well made with strong stitching and the thought process has been to create a sack which does everything, and can be put straight into the car or truck too.
I am dead chuffed with this and hopefully will get a chance to test it properly at the weekend.
Rod, I know we spoke earlier, but you need public recognition. Thanks a million.
