    recently I made up daybag/pikau with seatbelt webbing for strap,its long enough to use Alex Gales method of carrying out whole animal.....really wish Id tried it years ago as my back would be in better shape now. really easy to carry two small goats or pigs at same time and single animal is just too simple....close to vechile whole animal is good as easy to keep meat clean and the dogs get the bones when it gets home...back in further a quick bone out job saves a lot of weight,as others have said leave it to cool as much as practicle and get it back out of plastic as quick as posible...its the blood/moisture that will turn good meat to rotting pooh quickly...if its dry and better still getting air around it meat will last for ages.

    I find that over shorter carries and putting your meat in shopping plastic bags they invariably have holes and the blood leaks all through your hunting bag - costs a bit extra but I use the stay dry bags for clothing, never leak and simply wash them out and reuse them.

    It doesn't cost you anything @aetchell . Can discuss the when/where via PM am free most weekends. How old is you'r boy? Did he fire a rifle before?
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to pull it back.

    My boy just turned 15. We've done a few sessions of target shooting with our 7mm-08 and .22. he's a better shot than I am. I need to practice firing right handed as my left eye is weak (I'm left handed) we had planned to visit the rimutakas this weekend to sniff out some goats but would love to speak with someone with some experience.

    Am fairly new to this area (moved down from Hawkes Bay) so won't be able help you on spots in Rimutaka but can talk about they habits and likely habitats to find them in.

    We looked at game bags and stuff for on vehicles / trailers as well as pillow cases. We ended up going to the Sallys or St Vincent de Paul and buying Duvet covers and pillow cases. Inexpensive, and the money goes somewhere it can do some good as well. They keep the plies off and still let the meat breath and cool without sweating. I drop them into my pack as they are in pillow cases and anything into my pack that I dont want blood on, goes into the plastic bags instead of the meat.

    Huntech canvas bag for meat then into main pack for the walk out,I carry a small pulley system to hoist animals as high as possible off the ground to set the meat then bone out a couple of hours later or the next morning when I have my main backpack on.i also carry a long cheese cloth sock to keep the flies at bay in the summer.
