    It's a lot of fun packing out horns in bad weather. Always makes me feel like I've earned it even more and you are on the downhill slope!

    Thank ya sir! We hit the rut perfect that year, killed 3 bulls in 36 hours with our 4th guy loosing one in the same time frame. As a bonus, i killed a buck near the trail head on the hike out. Heading back next year!

    Just sayin..............
    Most of my hunting here in California is when it's 80+ during the day...fleas and ticks are always covering the animal, but they tend to stay with their host till the bitter end. Never had an issue.

    A worse photo for you Scott , a full size mule deer boned out with camp on a solo backcountry hunt. Turns out 3 steps is all I made before rolling farther down hill. It took two solo trips. Headed for trailhead around 7:45 and made it back at 2 in the am. Second trip wasn't as bad I should have made it 2 even loads. .

    One time I was packing out a small coastal buck that my Dad had shot north of Ventura. Hot as hell and I had a row of flea bite around my belt. The deer was covered with them and as it cooled down they started to bail out on the next nearest host...me! Glad it now a distant memory.
