    Default Game cart searching

    Being as how Iíve had to drag bales of hay on a calf sled and 2-4 3 gallon buckets of water over the ice and snow I think itís time to consider a game cart for last resort end of the trail
    Iím looking at a 500 lb capacity cart that I can rig up to a belt.
    Anyone else got a set up for this sort of thing

    not sure what you mean by "rig up to a belt" >>> I'd think twice about hooking up solid to a cart loaded down with 500lbs of gear - good solid pull bar or yoke arrangement - need a quik escape option ...

    Like for a skijoring belt. Itís being done with pulk sleds except you pull it behind you. The hips do the work
    The wheels are better on the 500 lb carts I donít want to go the route of having to stop and deal with a flat tire

    Cabelas has several carts.Never saw a game trail that it would fit on, but maybe I've not hunted enough countries yet.

    Chinese wheelbarrow seems like the ticket, except in the mud. The large diameter of the wheel will tame some of the terrain .

    No no no one wheel in front makes you carry the weight. With the game cart the weight is distributed in the middle
    Like a old red river cart if you can find pics of those

    you'll probably have to buy a sturdy cart and modify it to fit your wishes - a Strongway type cart is a basic starting point >>>>

    Not at all, because the weight is evenly distributed around that one wheel.. Although you can use two. The idea is to prevent having to actually lift any weight.

    Iíve had those garden carts before. Iím looking at a drag behind
    The wheels donít hold up for everyday hauling
    You donít want to be pushing your load in front of you over a long period of time
