    Mountain biking is fun (apparently)

    Into the Akatarawa forest this morning for a look, the early hunter gets the stag. A very nice solid good rep 12 pointer apart from a broken bez tine!!!! that's the second stag this year with a broken tine. And some people say mountain biking isn't fun. Not much to say really, I saw him walk through a clearing so plugged him through the shoulders. the ride back out was a total bitch, I'm having an early night tonight.

    I'll make some more room on the wall outside, the three previous from this year. The 10 with a broken bez tine is far right.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Nice, you need a little trailer behind the bike.

    If a trailer wont work there's always saddle bags? load up the deer's back wheels next to your own.

    By the looks, you can fit a fair amount of animal on quite a small trailer if you quarter it first or just take what primals you want if you've zapped somewhere messy. The hitch point looks to be the clever bit - and do you have it fold in two and rock forward like a messy rear pannier arrangement while it's empty, or leave it deployed rearwards and chuck whatever small pack you have on it, to keep it from bouncing around?

    How funny would it be if you had a deer sitting behind you on a rack/seat tie it around you like it was hugging you. High viz. Helmet and rode home... haha just a funny vision.

    Any decent cycle shop should stock them or be able to get them in.
    I have a copy of a BOB trailer which is the same as pictured, fantastic for a jaunt up a few easy tramping tracks behind the MB.
