It is the goal of every deer hunter to be able to bring a deer home every time they hit the woods. So much goes into preparation but little thought goes into what happens after the harvest. Maybe you will have help, maybe you won’t. Maybe you have a four-wheeler, maybe you don’t. Maybe you are so deep in the woods not much could help.
We have all been there after a successful deer harvest. How are you going to get your deer out of the woods? Even with help, it can still be a struggle. Factor in the size of the deer, the terrain, and the conditions. All these things can make getting your deer home very difficult. All-In Outdoors developed Leg Cuff deer drag to reduce the strain of bringing home your harvest.
For years I have wished there was an easier way to drag a deer out of the woods without your hands slipping off the legs. Even when you have the assistance of a four-wheeler or tractor, it can be difficult just to get your deer to the trail. Switching hands and sides really doesn’t help once you are tired. Add another degree of difficulty if you are hunting by yourself.
All-In Outdoor’s Leg Cuff is easy to use. It is as simple as opening Leg Cuff, placing Leg Cuff around the deer’s front legs near the hooves, and pulling the rope tight to secure Leg Cuff. The Leg Cuff can be used on any size deer and is ideal for racked bucks because it is designed to elevate a buck’s rack off the ground making it easier to drag. In order to do this, you place the buck’s legs above his head then secure Leg Cuff. Your drag is made easier as Leg Cuff is designed so it won’t slip over the deer’s hooves.
I put All-In Outdoors Leg Cuff to work on two different occasions. The first field test was after my cousin harvested a deer. A level three ice storm hit while we were waiting in the blind for my husband to bring us the four-wheeler. Needless to say, the four-wheeler was not going to be much help getting to our location because of the storm. I pulled my Leg Cuff out of my pack, placed it around the spike buck’s legs and pulled the deer to the ravine until my husband could come help us to drag the deer the rest of the way.
Field test number two was the last day of gun season. I sat in the stand with my muzzleloader and waited for a deer to come in. About an hour before dark, a nice doe walked into bow range. I dropped her on the spot. The only problem, I was hunting by myself and there was no way to get a four-wheeler to the area where I was hunting. I used the Leg Cuff to drag the doe off the bank to a four-wheeler path.
I found All-In Outdoors Leg Cuff to be very durable. I inadvertently left the Leg Cuff outside after we skinned and quartered one of the deer. We were in a hurry and I simply forgot it laying in the yard. It was out in the weather for a week before I realized it was missing. The Leg Cuff was in perfect shape in spite of it being left out in the elements.
The Leg Cuff is easy to use and has several other advantages. It is lightweight and packable but small enough to carry in your pocket. I carry mine in my hunting pack while bow hunting and in my blaze orange vest while gun hunting. Have someone helping you, add a second Leg Cuff for dragging deer out of the woods. My favorite feature of The Leg Cuff is no more cramping hands from trying to grip a slippery deer leg. I credit The Leg Cuff for helping drag my harvested deer with one arm as I am still cautious using my right arm after shoulder surgery several months ago.
