There are numerous good videos out there that show how to properly bone out your meat on Deer and Elk. It's a great idea if you are hunting wilderness areas or public land ,with no roads near by, to have a good pack frame. You will save a trip or two boning out your meat instead of quartering it out with bone in. Having a good pack frame is key, and will cost you $159-$349. Hunting by yourself, you will make two trips instead of four trips, if you do it properly. It is unlawful in Arizona as most states to waste any meat. So be ethical and get every last piece.
