    Heavy or light??

    I ponder this every so often.

    If you have an elk down, most of us can bone out and pack out in 3 loads. Is there a preference in the weight distribution on the loads. Do you load heavy when you are freshest, or save your feet and legs for a heavy push at the end.

    - start heavy and finish light
    - start light and finish heavy
    - balance the best you can

    This is how I do it, first and second load is a hind quarter, and front shoulder. Last load is all the rest of loose meat and antlers (if I'm lucky)

    This is what I do as well. With a good bull, the weights actually end up being pretty even.
