Re: Backpacking for Cascade Black-Tails

thanks for the great info. I used to live in Duvall and moved away in 99. Buddy of mine and I used to hunt over in the little Nachez area. We did hunt over in the Olympics ( near Brinnon)once and I remember him taking a nice blacktail in during a weekend hunt that rained pretty heavy. Still couldn't believe that big buck was out and about during a heavy downpour but we were told don't stay home in the rain! Good advice.

Re: Backpacking for Cascade Black-Tails

Nice story of the hunt but no real discussion of your backpacking gear and no photos of it other than your pack.

What, exactly was your GEAR LIST ?? (with weights in lbs. & oz.)
What was your total packed weight ? (all gear, consumables and rifle/scope)

To handle mountain hunting backpacking you need very light gear like my Tarptent Moment DW tent, for ex.
