My advice to you is.
1. Find a motel close to your hunt area.
2. Find a good place to eat
3. Find a rancher willing to pack out your elk.
4. Last but not least HAVE FUN NOT WORRYING ABOUT ALL YOUR EQUIPMENT YOU LEFT BACK AT CAMP.
We ran a guided outfit for some years out here in Arizona and I could tell you many horror stories of hunters trying to do exactly what you are trying to do. The cost alone for the horse, horse trailer, feed, etc could make a good payment on a small travel trailer.
I carry a gun because I'm to young to die and to old to take a --- whipping.
