Carry on, antelope sounds fun.
Interesting! I'll have to look into that. I was joking with a friend of mine who is a semi-pro soccer player who has never hunted, but is interested in the outdoors, I told him I'd bring him along so he can run up the ridges and scout for me and then haul out whatever I shoot!
Check with the outfitters found in the area. Some will pack out for you if it doesn't interfere with their client schedule. They probably would know of someone that may do it if they don't.
You'll be smart to check out all of this now. That way you can choose an area also based on availability of a packer. Then your not scrambling next year when it's time to put in for tags.
