If you can get a crust on the meat before putting in the pack, all the better.  

 

And Paul is correct as always, blood-stained blood-stains look great with blood on them...

OK, so... just to double check... I guess then a better plan would be to place the other contents which I'd be placing UNDER the meat, (so that the meats position is higher within the pack) inside the Garbage bags then?

You know... the bulky lighter weight stuff...like sleeping bag, etc... so that the weight of the meat can be more toward upper middle of back.  That sound about right then?

Also... how do most of you guys transport the head and cape back when in the truck?  My 1st one was small enough it easily fit within my large YETI.  The 2nd one, missing one side of his Antlers so also fit in the YETI no problem.  But I realized that if the 3x3 had his other side of Antlers, he probably wouldn't have fit in the big ol YETI.

From my initial looking around... it looks like most guys just place the head in one of those large scuba-diver/party buckets with the rope handles sitting it on a bunch of ice?

I suppose I probably don't even need to worry about it since I'd probably just be doing a Euro mount anyway.  But I got to thinking about if I ever get lucky enough to nab one that looks decently wall-worthy that I'd probably have to think about those details so the skin covering his skull wouldn't go bad on the trip back home.

What say ye?

Fancy.  What does it weigh empty?

You shopping for Zach?

 

No, I will never own another pack that does not have a scabbard.

 

I am with you one that one I love my scabbard


it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........

All this sounds so complicated...... just buy a Polaris and toss everything in the back! That way you can haul the Yeti full of adult beverages! And blood in the bed looks just as cool as on a pack!

STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN! DON'T JUST TALK THE TALK....DO SOMETHING!

NEVER put meat in plastic bags.  heat and moisture is what makes meat spoil.  You can get away with very very hot weather if meat is in game bags and alllowed to dry on outside.

 

I would be embarrassed to use a pack that did not have blood stains all over it.  And lots of blood stains.

 

Alaska Game bags are great.   If you are boning meat out pillow cases are better.  Then you just wash them and use again.  Key with meat even if 90 degrees out side is to get it off the animal and into bags.  Some time in shade and blowing dry in back of pickup. 

yep, my back is for back out meat, blood is apart of that package..... Note to self if packing out a bear.... you might need to leave your pack out side for a few weeks to get the bear sent

off of it

Yes. You can put your other gear in waterproof bags or dry sacks. Dry sacks allow you to condense down to a smaller size to fit more "stuff"

I only have one mounted item, a little fella, and we took him out the next day straight to a freezer.

I suppose if one was to hunt in the really hot areas and want to mount the animals I would get with your taxi and have him/her explain what they want done and how to do It given your specific circumstances. Guess work will only cause headaches.

Put meat on bottom of pack if you are worried about your other stuff getting blood on it.  I carry 1 large black trash bag in my pack and it is for rain only.  It could serve other purposes, but, I have had the same one in my pack for a long time.  Normally if it rains, you just get wet.

 

As far as cape.  Watch some youtube videos on caping.  It is not real hard.  If you trust yourself to do it, then cape it, let cape cool.  Will cool very quickly.  put it in the pillow case and spread it out in bed of your truck for the drive home.  Let the air cool and dry it.  When you get home, roll it up in plastic bag and freeze until you get to taxidermist.

 

If you dont want to cape it, pack it out, and let cool in your truck.  Freeze when you get home or take to taxi.

Blood, capes, etc. are all great, but how many chairs are you carrying in that 8,000,000 ci beast?  Just toss the Yeti in as well and you have ice with you...

The only moto's I have at my disposal at the moment are a 2000 Honda XR50, and "The Beast" 1996 Kawasaki KX500.  Wouldn't help for the places I've gone to. No motos allowed. Even though one of them is down a Road.  Apparently you can get a code to open a gate... but apparently you gotta go to an office in-person in Glendora and fill out the paper work... and then the code is only good for 2 weeks. Aside from that... most of the places I've seen game at the moto could only help ya after you've deboned it and packed-it out back to the moto anyway.  That little 50cc moto is taxed enough with just my Fatassi self on it. And the 500... man... you gotta be really ready to ride that howling beast! She wants to claw at the Earth and raise her head to the sky every chance she can get!
