Tractor log mud driving trick.
Getting truck unstuck with 2x4 - GIF
I have often had to hold down the differential lock on my backhoe to make it move in sand and even then there have been times when I had to bucket walk it using the hoe bucket as a push stick. In the oilfields we sometimes would install snow chains linking several sets together over the tires of both axles in layers creating a poor man's half track to be able to move in the muck. we carried snow chains winter and summer hardly ever needed them for snow but frequently used them for mud so we called them mud chains
Never try to tell me it can't be done

I used to run a slashing business, and the one thing I dreaded was mud; it doesn't need to be very deep because the tread on the tractor will make it deeper until the gearbox rests on the ground.
Ground under mud is always waterlogged, it just hasn't turned to muck yet, and mud was such a problem that I installed a 4 ton winch on the truck for such occasions.
