Re: Do you cape out your trophy or pack out the head?
Well, there are a ton of variables. However, I usually cape and just pack out the horns. If I am backpacking, I try to be as light as I can and there are a ton of saws out there for around 6 to 8 ounces or so. If there is bad weather or you just want to beat feet outta someplace, you can just back the head and cape but man, the older I get, the less weight I want to carry so I mostly bone stuff out and just carry the meat, cape and horns. And I don't mount much stuff so most of the time, its just the horns.
