Who here has built their own deer cart?

I'm only asking this because I just took mine out and gave it a new camo paint job. It had been getting pretty ratty looking, and I was walking past the camo spray paint at Wal-Mart yesterday, and decided to buy a couple more cans and touch it up.

BTW - its 100% home made out of electrical conduit, some 1X4 slats, and a couple 20 inch bike tires. I recently modified the handle so its now strictly a pull behind while you walk. I used to have it setup for attaching to my old bicycle, but I haven't been to the place I used to take my bike on the trails in a couple years. Besides, last flintlock season's doe I put on it, caused the handle to bend when we hauled it uphill(cart was originally designed for logging road use only), so I had to figure out a simpler method to install it. .

Here's another view;


I made this style of cart because it gets all the weight of the deer over the wheels. I tried making one years ago that had the wheel out front like a wheel barrow. Forget it. That design put way too much weight in my hands.
