The Darn Drag

The Darn Drag is that formidable ride your trophy bear gets after the celebratory pictures have burned their images into the memory banks of your phone.

Once we (“we” meaning the Bear Recovery Team – “BRT” for short) return to the lodge after retrieving your bear kill, the celebrations culminate in the hunter being pictured with his/her bear.

Shortly after the photos are taken, the BRT team helps the hunter roll his harvest into the recovery sled.  From there, tradition states the hunter alone, makes the 200 yard trek dragging his bear in a show of respect to all things hunting.

For those hunters who kill a 300lbs+ bear, we’ll come get you in the morning.
