Re: Areas to hunt 2013 backpack DIY
I admire your chutzpah and I'm not even Jewish, LOL! What would be the approximate dates of your hunt in order to figure approximately what the weather might be while you're there? Also, how far do you figure you would be from a trailhead where you would have to pack an animal out. It takes me 2 trips to backpack a mulie out by myself like this one I shot last year and it took two of us 4 trips to haul this big 357 3/8" bull out that my buddy shot in 2010 and it's only at about 7,000' elevation. Each trip was about 2 miles in fairly easy country compared to where you plan to hunt. Where you're talking about going I wouldn't even think of trying to take an elk out if the weather wasn't really cold to allow plenty of time to get it out and prevent spoilage.
