That's what Bill from Timberjack's used when we went up to the BW.  And I thought I brought a lot of gear......sheesh......was waiting for him to break out a girl from his sled. :)

I don't know leech,  pulling conditions were decent, but that doesn't mean much when you are out of shape and in your 40's. He brought way too much. And it's already over 30 lbs before it's even loaded. We didn't go very far........less than 3 miles.  We made frequent stops and I thought to myself it would make a great evacuation sled should one of us drop. *chuckle*

 

We had an ice storm during the trip and the way back to the trucks was a breeze. My toboggan turned sideways with the wind at our backs and literally kept pace with me at times. That's 100 lbs traveling on its own. :)

 

I thought his sled was pretty cool and would hold up a lot nicer than a kids sled,  I might have tackled something like that 25 years ago, but I will stick with my toboggan these days.

I recommend the Emsco 66" sleds for those starting out with winter camping or if you are looking for a more heavy duty plastic kids sled for pulling gear out ice fishing. The thing with a toboggan or a sled like an Emsco is that you are looking for a skinny sled that will fit in your snowshoe tracks. The heavy duty ice fishing sleds are a little too wide for that and are best pulled by a snowmobile.

 

And it seems like you can find the Emsco's on clearance late winter if you keep your eyes out for them.  I've seen them for as low as $25.

I saw those sleds advertised on the Ely surplus store page. I don't remember what they wanted for one. Seems about 20lbs too heavy, but the thing would be durable.

I did some Googling and found out the Sportsman WH was selling a bunch of them also but they were sold out so the on-line price wasn't showing anymore. Some Army supply Serg must have final opened the warehouse on the end and found a ton of them as they were for sale on a few outdoor supply stores.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
