Looking for a Central Idaho packer

I'm looking for a transporter in central Idaho for a backcountry elk hunt. My buddy and I drew a great bull tag, we did the same hunt 4 years back and killed a pair of large bulls pretty far into the backcounty. After packing 2 bulls out back to back over that steep country I would gladly pay for someone with pack animals to help haul one out for me this year if I could find someone willing. I'll be hunting for 9 days and my plan would be to contact the packer if I punch my tag and hopefully have him lined up to pack out the next morning.
Anyone ever done this or know someone in Central Idaho that does that kind of thing? I'm really looking forward to the hunt but the thought of possibly packing 2 more bulls over that mountain is daunting.

Contact the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Assoc. They can tell you whose area you are hunting in.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
