After spending close to 15 years riding guiding and packing in the high hunt areas can honestly say never packed out human waste, take an etool/shovel dig a deep cat hole (2+ feet deep)at least 100 feet away from any water suppy/source (downhill) and throw a dirt cover over your daily deposits, but do bring out all non organic trash.

Not for trips in high country, but if you are doing glacier travel it becomes important.  10 years of climbers on the same route on a glacier makes for a very messy situation if it is not packed out.

I do my best to pack out not only my waste but any animal waste I see as well for environmental reasons. Last year I shot a 170 in. buck up in ALW, but couldn't pack out any meat other than the tongue and testes due to the large amount of deer and bear scat I was helping remove from the ecosystem. I figured leaving the meat wouldn't be that bad considering that some wolves could probably make a good meal of it. They were here way before me, wouldn't be fair for hunters to be taking all the animals wolves are trying to eat and leaving nothing behind for them  :dunno:
