The DIY Hunter

Single Wheeled Elk and Deer Cart

If you can get this game cart to your downed animal and you have at least a second person with you this single wheel big game cart is as good as it gets for hauling out the entire deer or elk from just about anywhere. A big game cart very similar to my father's cart is GameTote's big game cart.

Years ago my father built a one-wheeled elk and deer cart. As you can see my father was a source for my big game hunting passion and where I got some of the creative DIY hunting ideas. Many of my fondest memories were hunting with my father in my youth. It is now fun to pass that passion along to my children as they are getting old enough to hunt with me.

This cart is the mother of all deer carts. It's as solid a big game cart as it gets and will haul deer and elk out easily. The cart was built back in the day when big bucks were abound within a few miles from the road and boning a deer out was not as common a practice as it is now.

The cart is built around a single motorcycle wheel and has a great break system built right into it. With this deer cart, you can put a couple of whole deer on it and two guys can haul them out of almost anywhere. The cart can be used by one to four people or more people at a time depending on how many guys you have and the size of the load.

I used this game cart a few times with my father when I was a teenager. Since those early hunting days I have changed much of my hunting style and choose to hunt areas that require a backpack to get in and out off.
