"One Wheel Cart"

Has anyone used one of these carts before for hauling out game? Got lucky and drew Shiras moose tag, wondering if we should purchase one of these? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

We purchased the biggest two wheel cart from Cabela's. works great and distributes the weight much better than the single wheel carts. Also if you purchase some wire mesh and drill some holes on the frame. You can install,the mesh over the bars and keep a bunch of things from falling through the openings. We actually have used the cart to carry gear to our satellite camps some years.

Good Luck and bag a big one

We had a great discussion last year about this. Wyobighorn and I, posted pictures of one wheeled carts we have made and use. Two wheeler are great on level ground with very little brush, but they are very difficult when side hilling or when there are logs or big rocks to go over. When one wheel contacts, the other wants to kick around. On slopes 2 wheelers want to tip over. Single wheel carts (with the load distributed and tightly strapped down) are easy to balance, even on steep slopes, as you can keep them upright. It's easier to zig zag when going down steep areas. I will try to go back and find the pictures for you to look at. We use 26 inch wheels with solid core tubes and tires. The tall wheel will easily roll through tall sage brush etc, or over logs.

Found it. Just go to search and type in (One Wheel Deer cart Pix)
There is all kinds of info. on how to build, how much it can pack, etc. Hope this is helpful. The one in the picture is mine. I had a high school kid that needed a welding project help me weld it up. Its not very heavy but it is very strong. It will pack as much as you can put on it.

Sorry. Okay try this because I can't figure out how to repost the old post. I apparently put the pictures and info on the "Hunting Gear" site. Go there and type in "One Wheel Deer Cart Pix", in the search. I was able to bring it back up, both signed in and not signed in. Hope this will work for you. Please let me know. If it doesn't I will have my friend, (Who is a lot smarter about computers than I am) re-post where you can get in it.

Have mixed luck with mine!

My friends had a number of homemade carts for use in the local WMA's that don't allow ATV use. Rules are that game be removed whole, and they frown on field dressing. I found a moped wheel/tire assm. in a motorcycle junkyard for $25. Light weight, equiped with a drum brake, and a molded "mag wheel" the plan was to fabricate a single wheeled cart for the ages.

Two-weeks later at a sporting goods closeout sale, I found a "MULE" ($75)with an aluminum frame and a 20" bicycle tire. At 12 lbs. you can tote the unit in broke down, assmble and "wheel out" your game alone. Larger deer (over 150#) are a handfull and usually require a partner to assist over logs, dips, mud holes, and crossings. Tire has gone flat, on 2 occations. I put some "green slime" and have had little trouble since. I have used the mule to transport a pop-up blind, and a ladder stand over flat/muddy ground deep in the WMA to escape the hoards. I think one could role a dressed mule deer or half a cow elk in the right conditions. No brakes would make down hills an adventure. In the sage flats it might shorten recovery time on a speed goat, muley, whitetail recovery operation. In the "dark timber" packing out an elk....I think it would be better to pack quarters on a quality frame or pack. The blowdowns would make any advantage with the cart more trouble then it would be worth.
