Making multiple trips to haul a kill back
Something I've been thinking about but been forgetting to post.
If I kill a buck, I'm most likely going to have to make a couple of trips to get it and my gear back. It will be October and at 10,000+ feet , so I'm not so worried about the temperature, etc.
I'll obviously have to hang any meat I can't take on the first trip.
But I will also have to leave my camp - tent, sleeping bag, pad, food, etc - behind.
I'll try and stash everything as best I can, but anybody have any ideas on that?
The other question is the head with the rack and tag (I'm going to have my first one mounted, so I'll have the head, cape, etc). I definitely don't want to leave it back with my gear unattended, I don't want to leave it sitting in the bed of my truck and if I run into DF&G and the second trip with any meat, I'll need it.
There's a pack horse operation at the trail head, if they're there, I may see if I can leave it with them, but I don't know if they're going to be open then (probably weather dependent).
The only thing I can think of is to carry it the whole time, but again, any ideas I might have missed?
