Read again or perhaps get someone to read it to you.
I offered absolutely no opinion of any technique.
In fact, my comment was not even a response to anything you posted. My point is that removing a bull with an enormous support system of people, machines, and on flat terrain is not exactly 'awesome'.



I don’t need to qualify anything for someone like you. Could you tell us all one more time, what is the title of this thread?

What pack frame are you running in those big Colorado bull adventures? Are the packs short to the horses or long packs out? Also we’re all those going to the taxidermy shop? The hide looks heavy! 😉 keep the pics coming.

I wish it was a frame pack. Frameless Lowe.
Couple are shoulder mounts and a couple Euro.
Hide and bone are way heavy, but better not to remove meat from the bone too soon, and sometimes time matters more than weight.
I would absolutely like your setup if extracting from above. Very few of ours are killed below a road.

I would love me some flat, but I haven’t seen any yet. A bud’s rifle is flat shooting though. 😉😎

What you don’t see is only eclipsed by what you don’t know. Your reading skills are lacking as well, it was 1000 yards not feet and in the Gravelly Mountains of Southwest Montana, miles and miles from any ranch. The Bull was bigger than most of the culls you are used to in Colorado and the guy that shot it would probably leave your sorry ass in the dust without a 4 wheeler. Spend more time criticizing your own accomplishments, don’t waste your time second guessing someone else’s success...


Without a doubt, you are the most ignorant dumba$$ to ever turn on a computer....come kill that bull on the coast and see how well your rigging works. Thanks for the laugh!!!!!

Nothing very cool sorry to say.
Shot the bull late and got it field dressed in the dark but there were no trees tall enough so the quarters hung about a foot off the ground.
I knew there were bears about.
Next morning a bear had claimed the bull and covered the gut pile with leaves. My blue heelers were going crazy and they made it clear to us that the bear was only about 75 yards off in another stand of timber.
I was young and poor and an S&W .22 was all I had at the time. I'd have brought my rifle if I had known it was going to get as sporting as that.

Shrapnel “wins”. Nobody can hold a candle to him bragging about being able to unwrap a piece of bubblegum.

Bum deal on the lost meat. The wheel gun in the worn leather adds a lot to the picture. Good thing the bear didn't come greet you.

Hard choice...which has more ft/lbs energy, the 40g lead bullet or just throwing the whole gun at him. Your hands would not have been rock steady, and getting 40g of lead through the eye socket on a charging bear would not be fun. LOL

Curious on drum size to rope amount. I would want a minimum 3k feet...More? Drum would ride in the 6’-5” bed of a Tundra.
Brackets would need to be fabricated probably. I would want to be able to remove drum and hardware at the end of the season.
Ideas on best way to set a stop or brake on the drum wheel for pulling. Then winding up slack line, crank handle I imagine.
Off season project..,. 😎




"Self righteous" is defined as having or characterized by a certainty, especially an unfounded one, that one is totally correct or morally superior.
Great pictures of packing elk out on ones back. Contributes absolutely nothing to the posters original question but does self aggrandize and proclaims moral superiority of a groups retrieval style.
Great, you can carry an elk out on your back, congrats. I have done it.
Sometimes I prefer to take out whole if possible to let hang and tenderize the meat.
At times a winch setup would be helpful.

You seem to think I can't.
