I learned that if you lock up your stuff on public property, sometimes even you can't take it! I put a cable lock around my deer cart near my stand to prevent would be thieves from taking it and it worked a little too well. I took a doe right before dark on Thursday, and it dropped dead like 40 yards from the cart. I figured I was in business and that this couldn't have worked out any better until I found out that the lock cylinder was frozen and the key wouldn't open it. Now, being the well prepared person I am, I even had a lighter in my pack for just such an emergency. Well, the wind was so gusty on top of the ridge where I was that the lighter wouldn't stay lit long enough to generate any real heat so I ended up having to drag the deer down the side of the mountain and then along a path all the way back to the parking area while my pristine cart lay there at the top of the mountain laughing at me. As an added kick to the nuts, the temp warmed up just enough over night that the locked worked fine the following morning. Next year I am going to spray it with some WD and maybe tie a plastic bag over it to keep the rain and snow out.
