Anyone ever venture out by themself. My hunt starts in 8 days and nobody on my tag can go out until the third day of the hunt. I want to go for the first day and I think everything would be ok, but there is always something that can happen. I would hate to break a leg out there and have nobody around. Also, it is a lot easier to call in a bull when your partner is calling some distance behind you. Shooting an elk and having no help packing it out can be a back breaker, but being in the mountains alone for 2 days can also have it's advantages. Lots of time to sit and think about the world and enjoy being away from civilization. As of right now, I am going out alone, but it could be because I'm young and haven't thought this through. I guess I'm hoping nobody here tells me about the time they decided to do this and almost died, and would never recommend it. Or is there something you do, like leave a description of where you are going each day in case you don't return to camp, that way you can be located in an emergency. What do you guys think?
