     I went bowhunting for elk in the morning and hiked for about 2 hours. In the afternoon I ran 4.25 miles at 8:27 AP.

     PM  After school I took my son back out hunting and hiked back into an area where I located some elk in the morning. We ended up getting a 6 point bull.  We got him right before dark and by the time we had him skinned, quartered and hung to cool it had been dark a couple of hours. It was a tough hike out in the dark. There is no trail and the dark made it hard to see the best routes to avoid heavier trees and brush. I carried one of the hind quarters over my shoulder to save a trip packing him out in the morning. I was exausted by the time we got home around midnight.

     After a much to short night, I got away early to pack out the elk meat before it got too warm. It was a mile and a half in, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it climbs 1000 ft and there is no trail and 3 or 4 round trips add up to 9 or 12 miles. I was able to do it in 3 trips carrying 85 to 90 pound loads each trip. The hind quarter I carried out last night saved me a trip but it was a lot more difficult to carry without a pack frame to strap it to. carrying that weight downhill was a little tough on my body. I'm still not 100% recovered from the marathon last week and I was definitely feeling it by the time I was done. No way I'm running today. My back was a bit sore after. Hopefully it doesn't turn into anything.

     Ran an easy 4 miles. Felt some fatigue left over from yesterday but everything feels good injury wise.
