With my kid's toboggan, I can use bungee cords to strap the bags down, and if the ground is frozen or snow covered, you can pull it with one finger. A lot easier than carrying it out to the field. I do have a strap that I can clip on to the cord to go across my shoulders if it is full of birds and heavy, but again, a lot easier than carrying your gear. I have seen guys use their dogs to pull sleds out, but my girl is a little old to do that now. When the ground is wet, I use the sled under my layout or just my body covered with a tarp to keep me dry in the field.
