How far did you walk in? Did you debone the meat before you packed it out? How many trips did it take to pack out that Elk? I'm curious because I'm thinking of doing something similar next year.
I was only about a mile, and most of it was a good trail. I decided not to bone it out. Just humped it out in 4 trips. I could have done it in 3 pretty easy, but i already covered alot of miles that day so i tried to lighten the packs a little. I always bring my old pack frame with me. The stone glacier pack can be a bit of a science project, and I didn't want to put sharp bones in it.
