When you learn how to quarter and pack game out of the backcountry you open up a vast amount of hunting opportunities.
Steven Rinella is renowned for his hunting ability deep in the wilderness. Here he takes some time to teach how to quarter and pack game out from those remote locations.
The ability to get away from your vehicle and off the trails and access roads will put you on land that receives almost no hunting pressure. This translates to the ability to see more animals and harvest better quality ones.
It is no surprise that when the hunting pressure is on, big game will move away from human activity. If you learn how to properly quarter and pack your kill out, you will be able to get deeper into the wilderness where the best animals are.
Don’t be afraid to try new techniques in the field; even if you make mistakes it is no big deal as long as you cool off the meat quickly and keep it as clean as possible. A bad cut here or there will not ruin the overall quality, so don’t expect perfection.
Take your time, be safe, and you will bring home some quality meat.
