A couple on private land but my first on public! Solo packout. Backstraps and loins on my way out after quartering and hanging. Three trips next day. Fine meat. My best field dressing and meat care after not paying enough attention to my duties on the last buck...
About 75 yds shot after hustling thru aspens trying to get clear shot out of herd of about 50 elk. Busted up heart pretty well after knicking bone on way in, exit other shoulder. Fragment of 180 grain Remington core-lok found at exit hole

Nice job! Love it when there is snow and cool temps to help take care of the meat! Makes for a less stressful pack out when you know you’re not rushed!

Good Job HCM!!! bled her out good with a heart shot and got the meat cooled ASAP. Doesn't get any better than that.

Nice! I did a solo elk pack out once. Swore I'd never do it again, but I doubt that will hold up long...

A buddy kindly offered to come help from about an hour and a half away but it was nice and cold and not too far in so I said not necessary. Wasn't too bad but when I get a bull I will be calling all you guys!
