About a mile, half of which was through some of the thickest nastiest stuff you could imagine. I scraped my jacket and pants I was wearing at the time because it was too covered in stickers to salvage.
3/4 of a mile, one of the shortest was 20 steps in a swamp where I tore my acl twisting in the mud while dragging and could not take another step, waited in the swamp for 3 hours until my buddies decided they better come look for me.
My spot on national forest is 2.68 miles as a crow flies according to my GPS so probably around 3 miles the way I go in. I've brought deer out a few times by myself and ifbyou keep a steady pace it takes 3 hours
Dragged 2 bucks that myself and 10 year old son shot, for a mile in October. I would drag one about 200 yards and turn around and drag the other the same 200 yards. I'm in pretty good shape and that kicked my butt...I could barely walk up the steps the next morning..seemed like a good idea at the time, and didn't have the heart to tell a 10 year old boy he couldn't shoot a 7 point buck standing broadside at 20 yards.
