Re: How to transport Elk meat??
I think a lot of people who have never hunted/downed an elk have no idea how big a critter they are. You can move a deer around pretty easy, but two people are lucky to just get a bull positioned to where you can field process him. If you're by yourself, it can be a real witch before you even start the packout of all that meat/head/cape. People need to realize they need to plan AHEAD and have all the equipment, including a good pack if an animal has to be broken down and taken out on your back. At 65 years old, I've still done one just about every year for the last 10-12 years to help friends out, but the times are getting short when I'll be watching and guiding the others instead of doing a lot of carrying myself, LOL!
