Hunting season is just around the corner and once or twice a season I find myself packing out a load or two of meat that is pushing the ~100lb mark in some pretty rough country.
If you are by yourself in rough country what is the safest way to get the pack on and stand upright? Lay it on the ground, roll into it, get on your hands and knees, then stand up?
How do you rest without taking the pack off? Taking the pack off doesn't seem worth the injury potential to get it back on.
Any other suggestions for making a hard pack out in ugly country less misserable?
I do plan on doing some 80-120lb 2-3mile practive hikes leading up to the season the sort out any issues.
