Bringing in the meat cart. My caribou was shot about 1/5 mile uphill from the road/trail, and our backpacks were back at the car, so I decided to bring my bike up across the tundra and use it to wheel the meat back to the road in one heavy, frustrating load. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Pretty setting. I've suffered some miserable weather in pursuit of big game, but I always seem to actually succeed when the weather's fantastic. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Riding in Valdez Creek road. We weren't the only ones with this idea. The Department of Fish & Game hotline mentioned that there were some caribou in an an area reachable from this road (several miles in), but it's in a non-motorized area. So people were accessing it via foot, bicycle, and even pack horse. Taiga found the horses very interesting. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

First two quarters bagged up. I normally cut off the basically meatless lower parts of the legs before bagging up the meat, but in this case I kept them for carrying convenience -- an extremely good decision in retrospect. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Working into sunset. Lena wanted to get away from the smell and gore and warm up, so she went for a little walk up the hill, where she took this nice photo back toward me From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Ready to ride out. All of the caribou meat was loaded on my bike here. I couldn't ride it like this, of course, so I guided it along and easily got it close to the road. It was very difficult to go through the last 20 yards of thick, tall bushes near the road, though. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Final load packed up. I strapped the hind quarters off either side of my bike's rear tire rack, loaded the burger/rib bag and antlers in my pack, and had an easy ride out to the car without Lena having to carry anything or get messy caribou on her gear. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.

Jason's 2013 Caribou. (Gross caption warning! read no further if easily disgusted!) The goo coming out the nose and mouth was a result of a very unusual bullet hit that scrambled the trachea/esophagus and left stomach contents oozing out the respiratory tract. The same shot clipped the top of the heart for an instant kill. This animal was not traditionally "gut-shot" at all, though, and I was able to keep all the meat untainted. From Clearwater Mountains in Alaska.
