Good question-  for me, it is just quicker to get the whole thing on my back and get it to the truck, if it is less than a mile or so, which is typical here in the Palouse. I also like to hang my deer whole for the aging period.  I prefer to skin the animal while it is hanging as well.

 If it were more of a backcountry hunt, of course I'd quarter or bone out the meat!

Appreciate the feedback and sorry to derail the thread. Was just curious since I am sure some do it for the "cool" factor, pictures and so they can say their pack was "x" weight

I suppose the pictures can look "epic", etc., but not the reason I do it!  And I have used all the different methods multiple times, so I guess that I've settled on the "whole pack-out" method as relatively efficient for "front-country" hunts. There have been a few bucks, like my 2018 Idaho whitetail, which were large enough where I skinned out the hindquarters, packed out the back half, and then returned for the front half of the deer.

Anyway, some impressive photos on this thread!

Similar for me.  If it is a reasonable sized animal and I am only a mile out or less i will just gut it and haul it to the truck where i can get it hung and skinned easier and in a cleaner environment.

Has nothing to do with wanting a photo op!

looks like the cape is folded up under the head?  prolly to keep the back of his britches and arsecrack from being soaked in blood?

This is when I drew a bison tag in Montana I hired a packer, this is the best $600 I have spent. I harvested the bull 5 miles from the trailhead

Does the pic do the weight justice?

That looks like an epic adventure!

On the deer, sometimes pics can be deceiving. Guessing I would say pack weight 30 lbs.

This will show the weight a little better.

The hind quarters were 185lbs a piece. I felt bad for that mule that hauled them out

Half of a boned out mature buck (meaning 4-6 years old) in October will be 55-60 lbs, spotting scope tripod 7, rifle 11, deer head 6-8 lbs.
