Re: Elk Hunting out West
We drove home with our elk after a DIY hunt, and we had no problems getting it home and it did not spoil. We also drove out with the truck so we did not have to rent a car for the trip home.
If you are flying back, it would be cheeper to bring the meat back as extra bagage( $25-$30 per box of meat)than to rent a car and drive the 1000+ miles home. If you fly Southwest the bags(meat) fly free. Something to think about.
One thing to ask about is that if you fly back, some airlines will want you to split the skull to save space in the airlplane. Your guide can give you information on this.
