North idaho bull elk

the elk was taken in unit 3 of north idaho. I used a .338 wm with a 225 gr bullet.

I packed my camp in on saturday. I went in 3 miles on a gated road, that is closed to 4 wheelers for big game sanctuary. I shot the elk monday at dark and it took all day tuesday to get it out. I went back in on wednesday and pulled my camp.

The trailer for the bike is made by a company in boise idaho. it is called the bob trailer. It is made for trail riding. The trailer attatches to the axle on your rear wheel. You pull your quick release out of your axle and slide theres in. real simple. The trailer than attatches to the quick release on the axle. The bike i used on this trip is pretty nice bike. I am an avid mountian biker and own 4 bikes. But anyone can use this type of setup. I wouldn't recommend a huffy for one reason. the brakes.

I haven't ever overloaded the trailer. I have put 2 elk hind quarters in it before. That is to much weight pushing around corners etc. The trailer held it though. I have used this setup for numerous elk, deer and camps.

I have been hunting with bycycles for years, it allows you to get back in the woods quickly and quietly and you don't have to feed them. However, the bike rider should be in fairly good shape.

This bull took 5 trips to get out. I would backpack the quarters to the gated road and than ride out. Leave a quarter at the truck and peddle back. I had 5 hours of peddle time alone. For whatever reason i got this elk out all by myself.

can't wait till next year to do it again.
