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.
