Not even during archery season would I do that. Pretty impressive though.

I always carry some battery powered Christmas tree lights in my pack. Wrap them around the antlers on the pack out.

Isn't he required to have orange on?

Although, I must say I like his technique, but I'd sure cover it with orange.

He would probably just pull the arrow out and keep hiking with his buck.

I talked to a guy hunting the DCNF years ago, a guy shot a buck and wrapped the horns in his orange vest and carried it out like that. He was promptly shot and killed by a new hunter. He said he stayed with the deceased until the GW and cops came. They arrested the dude that shot him. Public hunting is very dangerous with idiots!

I used to beg borrow and steal bow hunting places in North Carolina. The one time I hunted public land I had some *** hat set up 75 yards away from my setup that I had hunted the evening before and that morning. He decided to come for one evening hunt and lost his chit when I came back at 2:00 from lunch. I left my hunter orange vest attached to my climber at 6 foot to make sure people knew I was there.

It's almost comical at times. I dont let that deter me. I let it fuel me. I only know a handful of men that are successful with bow on public regularly. Its doable but they are animals. Put in the effort and you get rewarded. The rewards aren't always in the form of a harvested animal in my opinion either. Which brings up the question. Why do you hunt ?

I never did it again when I realized I could get 4 buddies together and spend $800 for a few hundred acre lease.


I hunt and fish because itís all I have ever known. My dad never took me golfing, bowling or dart throwing it was always hunting and fishing.

There is very serious problem and if this is a real risk then the problem is not the carrying of the deer.... It's the idiot behind the scope with his finger on the trigger.
FYI I knew a person that was shot and killed while hunting.. Shot with Buckshot.. The killer should have done prison time but he didn't..

Laughing at some of the responses

Used to hunt an area with some very steep draws during blackpowder season (pre modern in-line), and have carried many a deer uphill like that. This was over 20 years ago and we did wrap our orange vest on the deer.

I have no problem with it if it's during Archery only season. If gun season is open then that's not the best idea.
