He has awesome horses that I could ride .... even tho I had never rode before.
How long did it take you to get it skinned and cut up enough to pack out?

I think it took about 4 hours to cut, cape, saw and get loaded and off riding. I shot it later in the day so we skinned the top side and took 2 qtrs off so it would cool. We went back to the spike camp to return the next day with a pack string. We left in the morn with the other 2 hunters in camp. It took us all day to get to my kill cuz we kept running into moose and didnt want to bump them. That day one hunter missed a 60+ on the way out... and as we were cuttin' we heard the other rifle hunter shoot his 65".

I hunted with Dave Dickson (Dickson Outfitters) in the Yukon
