Not even close to 10,000 feet of elevation that day. NOT EVEN CLOSE. You do not count up AND down. Doing 4000' of elevation in a day is going up 4k and down that 4k, that is NOT 8K! I shot that bull with an arrow, I gutted him and propped him open and ran the 5.5 miles to the trailhead the last half in the dark, my vehicle was not there, it was two drainages over where I started 4 days earlier. I called a friend from there and he gave me a ride to my vehicle. I spent the night in my vehicle and in the morning we did 2700' and 5.5 miles to get to the bull, deboned, caped and packed out.
