When hunting in the backcountry having stock animals to carry the load of camp or game meat is a huge advantage. As I get older I appreciate the assistance these animals offer. For several hunts I have had the opportunity to pack in using Llamas and I can say I was surprised how easy they are to handle. They are surprisingly trail worthy, low maintenance, and mild mannered. Yes they can be crotchety at times but in general they are a great option for packing in gear. Really all you do is walk holding the lead rope and they follow you all over the mountains. It is quite impressive. Today we go over the basics of using llamas and tell a few lessons learned stories as well.
