Tried this last weekend on a doe my friend shot. It was a shorter drag but it worked real well

 

Lol, that doe was only 90 lbs at best.  Why drag against the direction of the fur? Wrap a rope around the neck and go.

No rope, use your belt or sling.

Criss cross the front legs over the head first then wrap the rope around the head. Stops the front legs from getting caught on stuff.

That is the way I had always did it in the past and will probably continue to do. It did seem to work well when I was going up hill or through thicker stuff as you are lifting a good portion off the ground.

In my younger days, I'd toss a 150 lb beer over my shoulders and carry it out. Now... a 90 lb deer gutted feels like a Maine moose. 

I call in the reinforcements and if I know they are not available, I probably won't shoot depending on where I'm hunting.

My thoughts exactly, ok for the wee ones maybe, but that’s about it.  Most of the hide is up off the ground with those.  The friction drag force along the ground has got to be at least double when dragging them backwards.
 

A “special” multi-purpose drag handle, a couple feet of nylon rope, and a forward drag works better for the heaftier ones:

LOL @ deer in video. I could have put that in my pocket.

Also LMAO @ the butt out tool.

I should make my own video on how to field dress. No broken guts, no busted bladder, no shit pellets spilled, no tool needed other than a small pocket knife. The asshole should be cut out and let attached to the guts inside. It all gets pulled out from the inside.

And a video on how to have hardly any hair get on meat while skinning.

Easiest drag I do when successful is to use the nylon strap that comes with my HSS safety vest, wrap tbe strap around deer’s neck and attach to the loop at the small of your back and off you go. I’m 58 and not supposed to dead lift more than 50 pounds per my cardiologist (I regularly double that), and yet dragging a deer out that way is a cinch.
