Been a while since I've been on here. Moved to CO for a while and got the public land backpack hunting bug real bad. This is my 2016 solo backcountry deer. Shot him about 5-6 miles back across some mountains and down a drainage at 9am. Had him boned out and back to the truck by 11:30pm that night. Came back for my tent and wood stove, optics, and sleeping gear a day after (had to recover! What a whoopin'). Don't care about score or whatever but I killed a wilder than wild buck and dragged him out on my back and ate him all year, I'm a happy camper!
Camp from afar. Homemade tarp tipi and a titanium foil wood stove to stay toasty.
Some pack-in photos along the drainage in a cool tight spot.
