Thanks all yeah I may have been to thorough getting the meat off my buck. I did load everything into my pack 50 pounds of gear and gun a head and meat all told just over 200 pounds . I actually got it on my back after falling over twice. Made it 250 yards I would have done it , but I hadn't ate my Wheaties that morning.  Doesn't help that I brought the big spotter and my heavy rifle. Though I needed that gun for that shot. But deffinatley too much gear for an overnight.also brought the golite teepee with bug hut instead of the big agnes ultralight. Foolish on my part but another year down another lesson learned.
it all sucks one trip or two! Hell even the hike in sucks  :chuckle:. That's what keeps us going back! Congrats again! :tup:

Congrats.  Those pack outs can be brutal and be felt for weeks after.
Cut em!

Nice writeup. You really make the reader feel your joy.

 Ive done physical labor my whole life and am almost your age and I know exactly what you were thinking and feeling when you tackled the job of getting yourself and the deer off the mountain....I'm not that old...I'm tough, I can do this...heck Ive done tougher jobs, thats what would have been going through my mind before. After, I would have been thinking, Is that what it feels like to almost have a heart attack?  :chuckle:
