I recently traded the pickup for a SUV. I haven't had a SUV for 22yrs. I was looking for the best way to put it in the car without leaking. I didn't want the hitch rack. Well I found the best thing,bagabuck.com This thing is awesome! Its a leakproof bag for deer. Its tarp material but its a bag made like a envelope.I used it a few weeks ago for my doe and its great. Give it a look.

looks like a pretty cool system. I would be curious to know if it makes draggin a deer any easier.

I was on a bear hunt once where they actually had a body bag (like a Coroner would use)to drag and haul game that was killed.

Don't know how they procured it, but it was amazing, thick, fluid-proof vinyl with a zipper and handles. You could drag it anywhere, 2-4 guys could pick it up and carry it, and the interior of the vehicle would be fully protected.

Having used them before, I'd vote for the body bag.

I have a sled that you buy at Dick's sporting goods. I drive a Jeep Wrangler and it fit's perfect in the back when the seats are down. I keep my tree stands in it and prevents them from sliding around. My Tupperware container fits right next to it with my hunting clothes. If I shoot a deer all the blood stays in and can be easily hosed out. I even used it when I had a truck. On long drags I go back and get it. I also use it to haul in my tree stand stuff.

This was a pretty darn good sized deer and he still fit just fine. The quality is awesome and it will last you many years. I abuse mine pretty darn good and still no cracks.

I use the same system as Tim with the Jet Sled. If I'm hunting and driving my Ford Expedition I use a Hitch Haul in the hitch receiver. If I'm driving my van (most of the time) I do like Tim, put the seats down and the Jet Sled fits in perfectly. I also use it for hauling treestands and whatever else I need. Neat system! [thumbsup]

Tim that is brilliant! I've used a disposable tarp I get in the paint department of any home improvement store. I double it up and then throw away the top one

I have a cargo bin mat in back of my SUV....I lower tailgate...slide cargo mat to edge...load deer...slide it back into cargo area. I used to just leave in place but after a few bloody tongues and such on carpet on tailgate I learned to slide it in and out with deer when loading or unloading. Sometimes I will put a garbage bag over head if lots of blood and mess since it tends to flop around when loading by yourself. Biggest problem is not the transport for me...but actually getting the bigger ones into the back since you lose some leverage not being able to stand and lift. That is a whole new thread though on how I load big deer...hahaha
That JetSled idea looks good though...

I am not fan of the HitchHaul unless the deer is fully covered. Not only to keep road debris and exhaust fumes off but to also cover from others on the roads and highways......

Tarp down and sled used not better way. Dicks has the sleds. Same sled used for ice fishing for your gear.

Tim that's a great system. My wife likes the bag system cause it does not smell up the car. The smell with the open sled would be to much for her,LOL

I just used a small plastic tarp. Worked for years. Open it up, lay the deer in and fold it back up. I do like that sled idea though.
