I know it doesn't weigh anything....but there is no need for the wire saw is there? You can totally dismember any part of an elk with a knife blade.

I'd stick to the interstate for fast and easy mindless driving.

Interstate is way better out there. You'll hit oilfield traffic and lots of towns the other way. Not to mention NMs stupid speed limits. Wide open road the whole way on the interstate. Watch out between midland and odessa. It slows down to 60 I believe. And traffic sucks

really excited to follow along on this one! Trying to do something similar in the next year or so. I have serious elk fever, and was going to do a Colorado OTC this year since i struck out on draws, but a new baby made me push it off for another year. Luckily I can live vicariously thru some members here!

One thing I am well known for doing is changing really important stuff the week of a hunt. Weather that be bows or arrows or broadheads. Well this hunt I'm changing releases. I have been struggling with my carter thumb button. It doesn't fit my hand well and I haven't been shooting it good. So I'm gonna go back to my hinge for this hunt. True fire sear with no click. And I say that today and may be shooting something else next week. Lol it always makes things interesting.

Might want to check the NM DOT site for construction if not heading through El Paso. We ran into a lot of that west of Lincoln national forrest this summer. Crazy slow and DPS everywhere imposing construction speed limits.

So far I like it a lot better than the havalon. That said I haven't broke down an animal yet. The thing I like about it is the handle and the fact it can't break. I have heard lots of guys have the piranha break where it folds. That would be no good if you were on the side of a mountain breaking down a elk. I went with no parachord because I could see it getting really nasty with blood and stuff

Works pretty good. Just don't leave them in the hot water too long. We have had some open up on us. Makes a big mess if its chilli or stew.

The unit were hunting is roadless but sets up well for truck camping. We will day hike 6-10 mile loops unless we get into elk closer than that. I don't like packing in for elk if I don't have to because when you pack in your committed to that spot. If you truck camp you can drive all the way to the other side of the unit and hunt one day if you want to. I don't mind putting on miles and my pack should be light. Under 15 pounds I'm guessing.
