Default Decoy Cart





Looking at getting a new decoy cart. I have an SUV so it needs to be able to fit in there. I need the biggest cart possible to haul in three decoy bags,waders,guns, and all the other miscellaneous items.

I have already looked at them and the carts are not big enough. The current carts all the places sell are tiny. I thought of making my own but I need it to collapse to fit into my suv.

I made one from a 5' section of aluminum ladder. Used 12" wheels off an old high wheel lawnmower deck, and used part of the mowers handle for the step. Made a hinges like a card table leg support to allow step to fold down. I use small ratchet straps and tarp straps to hold deer on it. And it pulls or pushes similar to a refrigerator cart. Have hooked a rung over a hitch ball on an ATV and used it as a trailer. It would fit in My Jeep Cherokee or I would strap it on top on roof rack. Have had two mature deer on it at same time and was able to haul them out of timber. I'm sure it would work as a decoy cart. Its 5' long 20" across wheels.

Dang Denny that cart looks great, I was going to build my own also but chickened out.

Scheels has a decent one by Mud Buddy, pretty big wheels and can haul 3 bags but that might be the limit.

I have an API that I can no longer find. I would purchase another a heart beat. Pulls great with big loads. This is my typical load I use on the cart.
14 goose floaters
8 goose full bodies
2 dozen duck
2 guns
stove
cooler
2 pairs of waders
thermos
2 shell bags
another bag with miscellaneous gear (mojos, rain gear, coat, higdon pulsator, jerk cord, plates, spatula,skillet)
