I used to embrace the suck, now I curse it every single step! This is the only time I've embraced it in many years. I Thank God every day that a friend decided to stop by camp on his way over to the Sierra Madres for the first time in 25 yrs...with my new best friends, Moon and Blue!!!

The tundra sucks every step. Literally

HUNT, that's a great pic! I can see both the satisfaction and agony at the same time! Ha!

My nickname has become 'sherpa pete' these days. Seems to be the only thing in the hunting world I'm good at besides the occasional decent elk video :)

Only a week out for us here in Utah !!!

Cheers, Pete

Disregard the black climbing stick I'm holding. The hills were steep in Kodiak....thankfully it was downhill from there.

This is my buddy from Cheyenne carrying my bull. Glad he did it didn’t seem Like fun. He also had his bow and another 6x6 ran up to him at 40 yards.

I think this was load #3, and the trip back to the truck was getting longer each time.

Hunt, a guy told me one time that it was the sign of a lazy man that would try to carry in one trip when it should take two.

I guess I don't remember the suck, but I do remember the Mackenzies.

I dunno if suck is the right word....if everyday sucked like this one did....I’d be one happy man. Can’t wait for a heavy pack again.

The point at where it started not to suck....I agree with SBH. If everyday sucked like this one, I too would be a happy man. One month from today my crew and I should be back at it again.

Great pics!! A caping knife and bone saw would reduce the weight (suck) considerably in several of those pics.

Sorry guys. There is no suck when you have a full pack of meat and antlers on your back. Only sweet pain! Congrats to all.

Whether it’s my buddy or myself I will gladly embrace the suck as it’s only 25 days until I begin my first elk hunt!
