At 71 my wife put her foot down this year and said, no more packing in and hunting alone with out some kind of communication. I was only about about 7 or 8 hours late of making my rendezvous time. I had a good excuse, I had killed a 6x6 bull that morning and it takes me a fair amount of time to field dress, break it down, bag it and pack out one quarter. Well I thought it was a good excuse. It didn't fly with her. Just ordered the zoleo satellite communication system. Also wish to express my gratitude to my brother. My wife drove to town and called him. He drove a little over 100 miles to help me pack out the rest of the elk. Hunt safe everyone and be careful.
