    I was only about a mile, and most of it was a good trail. I decided not to bone it out. Just humped it out in 4 trips. I could have done it in 3 pretty easy, but i already covered alot of miles that day so i tried to lighten the packs a little. I always bring my old pack frame with me. The stone glacier pack can be a bit of a science project, and I didn't want to put sharp bones in it.

    What was really awesome was packing 10 days of food back out in 1 day after I almost through up in my tent from my headaches. Priceless!!

    I have to admit, I was having a great time once I started sleeping good. I was ready to go hard every day until that poor sucker stepped out.

    Congrats and a great pics and story. Hoping for similar results this week in the wilderness of NM muzzle loader hunt. I'm also going solo taking all my gear in. Very excited. Can't sleep much at night. My mind is playing out all scenarios.

    Saw one the first day. A guy told me they really don't anything to do with us, and they are sneaky. He must have had me pegged for awhile, and I barely caught him slinking away around a corner. Then I remembered their is always more than one. It was the color of a yellow lab. Wasn't really expecting that. Spooky, but still pretty cool.

    Good luck, and try to stay calm and collected when it counts. Funny how fast we forget things in the heat of the moment even though we have rehearsed it in our head numerous times. Now I know what some of these guys have been talking about when they talk about the heightened excitement of doing it solo.

    I hear they are pretty bad in that area. I might go do some scouting down there with my wolf tag!

    congrats, what part of the frank where you in? Just curious as it is a very big place. Did you fly in to a backcountry strip? or is that the November hunt?
