If I have an oak tree sapling that is 6 feet tall, 2" caliper, can I reasonably expect it to live if I try to

transplant it with just a shovel and 55 year old back? I've dug out other oak tree saplings in my yard over the years and even the short ones had a tap root that went down about as deep as the tree was tall - 2' or more.
