I have hunted alone a lot the last few years, and enjoy it immensely! As mentioned though, that first elk alone will test ya! Mine was in a white-out too! No GPS, just compass, made for a long zig zagging trek, which was several hundred up-hill yards off-course in the end! Now, I have a GPS and extra batteries! (Of course that compass is still in the pocket!) I have had a couple end up on a steep side-hill slope, that made it pretty tough single-handedly. Definately doable, just a ton more work envolved.
Sure is something about being out there and doing everything completely alone though!! Kinda surreal really. Extremely satisfying!
