Why is packing out so hard? Is it the weight of the animal? Or the unwieldy shape? Or is it the pressure of getting it out in a timely manner? This week on the Artemis podcast we're joined by Montana hunter Sarah Keller, who tells us about carrying a deer out whole, and getting by on those rough pack-outs when the body is... ahem... "deconditioned."
