Beautifully said JW, when we get elderly we have to adapt or quit what we love, there is no quit in me.

I don't think I mentioned it here but deer my drag-a-matic got its final test Monday evening. I pulled all the lead I own and two cans of diesel 100ft up a hill with my drill setting on 22 or a fairly low torque setting for what the drill will actually put out. I am ready for that deer that runs off in the grand canyon behind my house now.

Work smarter, not harder.
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

I walked past a stack of "deer sleds" at Wally World this fall and chuckled, "$29 bucks, for that!?" - then I tried to move a deer with a tarp fighting ground cactus!  Next time, I see those sleds, one of them is coming with me.  Also carry a come along pulley in the Suv, have to get some non stretchable rope, though!  This year, it was a real pita, getting the deer through the side door as my tailgate was damaged when I got Rear ended, $2,700 worth!  I agree with JW - work smarter, not harder!  However,  old is 40 years older than I am ever going to be!  I certainly am not going to act my age!

The ice fishing sled pulls easier than a deer on the ground. What I like about them is you can field dress your deer, get rid of the extra 30% of the weight, throw the deer in the sled and keep the body cavity free of dirt and leaves on the way back out of the woods.

Right now, I got a 2007Toyota Sequoia 4x4, 4.7 l (287?)V8.  If I get a different vehicle,  I will probably go for a 4x4 crew cab truck with a 5.7 V8, like the Dodge Ram, or the Toyota Tundra.  Of course, money matters, as well.  Will also do a bit of research as to the timing chains or belts.
