I bought trekking poles many years ago for when I do long backpacking trips, and I have always loved them for that. Then, the genius in me realized that if they work well for that purpose, why wouldn't they work well when I go hunting and am hauling out heavy loads? (hopefully)
I still am not 100% used to them being a part of my hunting pack list. I have left them behind a couple times when I wished I had them. But I'm getting better about it, and I love when I have them and need them.
As was stated, if you are hiking up and down mountain terrain, and especially when packing out an animal, give them a try. You won't be sorry.
