49 Degrees North Horse Packer?
« on: August 21, 2023, 08:18:29 PM »
I got lucky and drew a 49 Degrees North moose tag.  After doing some scouting, there are quite a few gated roads closed to motorized vehicles that might prove challenging to pack a bull out of especially if the weather is warm.  I am curious if anyone knows any horse packers in that area that a guy could hire to help pack out meat.  Having killed moose before I know what a task it is when you get one down and just want to have all options available if needed if I am able to get one.  Thank you.

You have a horse?

I've got a story too lol we weren't moose hunting but there was a different version of the ghost in the darkness. Only time I've ever been legitimately scared in the woods. I still look over my shoulder when I'm alone more often than not.
