This may seem like a question with an obvious answer, but I've never received a direct response. I'm a newbie to bowhunting and am considering venturing a little further out from the cabin for a stretch during the season.
When you read about a backpack elk hunt you always hear "getting miles away from the nearest road/atv trail". Some of these writers are hunting solo as well, and shooting monster bulls that weigh a ton.
For anybody with backpack hunting experience, how exactly do you get the quarters into a cooler quickly when in such a remote area? Considering the temperatures during bow season, I would imagine it has to be done pretty quickly.
Do you operate out of a "base camp" of sorts and keep coolers near your truck? Do you pre-arrange with a cowboy and rent a horse? Or do you not drift to far from an atv trail?
