45 to 60 lbs. and make a few trips. The high elevations and steep/shale rocky terrain isn't worth the fall or slip etc.. Horses is the way to go but I don't have one that is pack trained now.


I haven't ever weighed mine but on Elk I haul out a front shoulder and a hind quarter each trip, it sucks but I can normally get everything out in three trips by my self. Also, get a set of trekking poles, it sounds silly but they help a ton.


It's a trappers life for me

Thanks guys, I think I found what I need.


I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I agree they will be your best friend. Even if you just have one stick it is the only way IMO.

Note to self...take more pics. I don't have any pics of these sheep in our packs but what you say is true. I bent my pack frame when me and my partner thought it would be a good idea to descend part of the mountain using a snow slide instead of retracing our route back along the rim the way we had come in. I was picking up steam and the rocks were coming up fast but I somehow managed not to get myself killed. My pack snagged on something on the way down and tweeked the frame. I'll never forget the rooster tails my buddy was kicking up trying to dig his heels in.

A sleeping bag, tent, stove, 40-50 pounds of meat along with a cape and horns is a plenty big load in that country.
