    How wet

    After a good stalk the animal cleanly dispatched the awfull realisation hits home,Ive got to get this out !!! truck quad no chance to much damage to the rides ,On the sholders it goes not long before the classic heart lung job mine.So my question anybody tried a hovercraft for deer extraction?

    Red Hind, 243m= 1 hour carcass retreve accross clearfell, loads of dead wood, boggy, uneven ground, hidden ankle breakers, just not pleasant. There is no way of getting a vehicle of any type over the terrain, a helicopter sounds like a good idea.

    Must remember in the future that finding the deer is the easy part, pulling the trigger is a natural feeling, having my heart and lungs leaping out of my ar*e to get some more oxygen is not easy, not natural and not pleasant!!!!!

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    they are in the shed for a reason!

    used them in Scandinavia , taking moose out - great! don't take them on restock!!! You'll see what the underneath looks like.

    best thing for restocks, good path network put in place when the machine is in mounding.

    One piece of kit that really works, is a petrol driven capstan winch, with as much rope you can carry.

    Got a mini forwarder that I know all to well what the underside looks like .

    I do like the iron horse on boggy ground, but the old three wheel Honda took some beating in terms of going over really wet ground if it was flat

    I've got a Järnhäst (ironhorse) used within its limitations a great tool. The winch on mine is quite scarey. with to much pulling power for the machine.
