Rubber on the sole of my boots get me in nad out of the woods no matter the distance. If I am fortunate to harvest an animal a little more force is applied to that same rubber and my treestand harness aids in hauling the critter.
One day I would like to go on a hunt in which the travel by horseback and pack train. That would be awesome!
You guys can keep the 4 wheelers:)
Odds are, unless you get in quite abit of saddle time before you go on that pack-in trip, you will still spend a lot of time walking.
