Using Buck Cuffs
Updated: Aug 8, 2018
Have you ever tried to drag a wet, bloody, deadweight animal across wooded grounds? The wet, bloody fur is hard to grasp and causing your hands to slip frequentl. Not to mention, the tremendous strength required to move such a heavy creature; if I wanted a workout I could have gone to the gym!
Optimize comfort and efficiency of Buck Cuffs by:
Slipping your wrist through the velcro strap
Grasping on to the handle
Tightening the strap
Once you have the Buck Cuff on securely, you are ready to slip the cable around your kill to move it wherever you need to go.
(or Elk, Antelope, Coyote, [insert your preferred animal to hunt here], etc.)
Buck Cuffs can be used individually, or with a hunting partner. They can be used to drag animals out of the woods to be processed or to lift them onto a truck or 4-wheeler.
If using Buck Cuffs by yourself, you can use one on each wrist and slip each cable onto a hoof or antler, pull the cable taught, and start dragging! You'll notice that the short length of the cable helps lift the animal off the ground a bit for less friction, reducing the drag and increasing leverage. The following videos show how you can use one Buck Cuff or a pair of Buck Cuffs to drag and lift deer.
With a Partner
If using Buck Cuffs with a partner, each one of you can slip a Buck Cuff on a wrist, attach to the animal, and drag or lift the animal together, allowing you to share the weight.
