Deer carts

After the original deer cart cardboard box is no long in conditions to be used, how does one store and transport the unassembled cart in a compact orderly matter?

I have one of those cheapo carts that is a monster while assembled. I replaced bolts with retaining pins for easy break down. For storing, I just use a few bungees to keep each broken side tight together. It travels well up against the front of the truck bed and hangs on the garage wall with only the wheels sticking out. Not a perfect setup but is functional.

Mine folds flat and the wheels come off with the removal of a clip. Takes less than a minute to setup or tear down. It's not a cheapie though. Believe it's a 300 pound model. We pulled a 425 bear up a mountainside with it with no damage to the cart.

The one I have is probably the same one Deuce820 has. It's designed to be backpackable, but I normally leave it put together and locked inside the back of my truck.

Last year, I had to collapse it because the deer I got took up the entire bed/cap area of my truck (small Nissan). Right now, the cart is disassembled and stored behind the front seats.

this one holds 500lbs and looks easy to store behind the seat, trunk or lock it to the bed of the pick up.

The box is just wore out from handling over the last 10=- years. It is for weights to 300 lbs. However, most of the deer I have taken out of the woods over the last 10 years have been very close to a road or I have transported them by ATV.

I did use it this year to take my turkey blind and gear about a half mile back in the woods. worked well. Also used it a few years back to transport a nice 9 point a long somewhat rugged distance back to my vehicle...worked fine and toted my tree stand and bow at the same time.

I guess I will try the zip ties to fasten the pieces together for storage and wrap it in a tarp when I transport it in my Jeep.
Unless I can come up with something better to contain it.

We have had very good luck with a sturdy wheelbarrow for transporting game.

Perhaps if you post the dimensions of the original box someone might be able to give you a suggestion or two where to find something that could be used as a replacement.
