    Doing a face plant is one thing, doing a face plant with an additional weight of 250-300 pounds is another. Best things old guys can do is stand back and watch, and like you Wayne, I'd be standing at your elbow taking it all in. That dude must have a lot more Neanderthal in him than the rest of us.
    Anyhow, they got it out and that is what matters.

    Thats why they call it being young and stupid with a strong back, most big guy strong guys I know have back problems.Would have been a lot lighter without the hide on.

    I still feel pain from packing 130lb moose quarters over the years. I appreciate the gumption it takes to haul 1/2 an elk! Not sure how old that guy is but if he is a millennial it proves they are not all pussies.

    Definitely entertaining, just glad it wasn't me this time.

    1st elk I ever shot was just before dark, and we went all the way back to camp to get the backpacks etc and then all the way back in.
    (should of just gutted and came back in the morning)
    Anyways, didn't get back to camp till 5 am!!!
    All I remember was we decided to fry up some liver with apples and onions and a few shots of Schnapps!.
    There was 4 of us, and we spent all the day as well getting every piece of meat out (this was before we started to debone meat)

    When that one guy in your group put both hinds on the back, I was glad that wasn't me!
    Hate to say it, but take it from a guy with some major back problems, DO NOT try to be superman.
    One slight misstep or twist and it can change your life forever.

    I do remember having to go up one slight incline once where I was on all 4's crawling up the hill.
    Just could not get up it on 2 feet.
    Don't miss it!!!

    i have tried the pole method with 2 guys and man is it hard on the shoulder especially if you are on uneven ground or a slope....never again for me
