A lot of the time I camped higher than tree line so fires don't come by very easily, but when we do have the option to have a fire I certainly take advantage of it. Especially if we already got some game down on the ground.
11 miles in from the road here and planning to pack out the caribou and camp the following day so finishing off the rest of the box wine and eating some meat so we don't gotta haul it out on our backs. Not a bad way to spend an evening in the backcountry cuddled up next to the fire forced to polish the wine off early while dining on backstrap while watching the sun set.
No fires for me. Generally try to camp pretty close to the elk, but in an out of the way spot. I'll walk 6 hours round trip to swap clothes rather than chance busting out the animals.
