    I am like Timberstalker, I have everything I need to do the job with me at all times. My Badlands 2200 will handle a quarter on the way out to either get the horses or get a friend. I don't like to let to many people know where I hunt, so sometimes it is just me or my hunting partner to get the work done. Most of the time by the time I get home and load horses I could have the meat out, so most of the time it comes out on my back.

    This is one of those instances when the more the merrier come into play! Get help my man, packing out meat is never easy and being alone will make a hard task even harder. It can be done, but having at least a couple hands with you will make the pack out alot easier while being able to joke with your partners making the experience that much more memorable and enjoyable. It's like training for the hunt, sometimes you need your huntin buddy for that extra push of motivation! I hope you get the opportunity to pack out some meat on your back this fall WITH or without help!

    So how much beer will it cost me to get you to bring your horses down to bozeman this fall?

    I started to hunt elk in the 50's with my dad. We always packed out the elk on our backs. Sometimes two elk when we had a good hunt. My dad passed away in the mid 80's, and i've hunted alone every since. I'm 69 now, and still pack out the meat alone. It's part of hunting for me.

    I have no interest in antlers though. So, they stay at the kill.

    With that said. My elk days are drawing to a close. I'll probably just hunt muley's from now on. Well......not this year. Maybe next year.

    I had the pleasure of packing out this large bear. The pack was maybe only a mile up to the top of the mountian. I left the bones in as it was faster and I wanted to start getting the meat up the mountain. I got it all in two trips (very heavy trips) and after I de-boned the guy at home and weighed the bones themselves I will never NOT de-bone a big animal again. The little bit of extra time would have saved me about 17lbs per load. Just my two cents.
