Hunters, Sound Off: Log Tongs to Drag a Deer?
The image above was posted on a hunting group by a curious hunter, wondering whether anyone in the group had used this tool — which looks like a log tong to me — to drag out a deer. Here’s what he said:
Anybody use this ? I feel like it’s a little disrespectful. I sound dumb, I know. But that’s just me. What’s yall’s opinions?
I know what he means… stabbing a deer’s eyes with a pair of tongs to drag it seems wrong somehow.
I have used a number of methods for dragging deer over the years, from rope to simply grabbing it, to the specialized Deer Dragger harness, which I reviewed here.
I don’t think I would want to drag a deer using these tongs, even if if didn’t seem sort of “off” to gouge out the eyes to drag it out. Doing it one-handed on a skinny handle doesn’t seem too comfortable — especially for folks with shoulder troubles.
What do you think? Reasonable? Ethical? Weird? Practical?
