It is your responsibility to skin, quarter, cape and have your harvested game accessible to a pack string. All game must be skinned, put in game bags, and hung where it is cool, to keep meat from spoiling. If all of these procedures are followed you game will keep for several days even in the warmest weather. Game that is not taken care of properly will be reported to the local warden. Your camp will be checked on every 2 to 3 days. Anyone harvesting game should leave instructions in plain view for your packer directions to the animal if it is close or directions to where you are. You should also leave instructions as to any processing or taxidermy work you might want done. No game will be packed out without proper license attached, signed, and dated. Great care has been taken to see that you have a clean well set-up camp. We expect your camp and area to look the same when you leave. All garbage that can be burned should be, all cans should be crushed, and all remaining garbage needs to be in trash bags and ready to be packed out when you leave.
