In my opinion, if you hunting only for the meat, do not take on back pack hunting. You should hunt this way for the experience.
I am glad to hear someone else on here that know how hard hunting the Trinity's can be. I have backpacked in the Sierra's and Hunted in Colorado and Montana and I think the deer hunting in Trinity's is some of the hardest and steepest hunting around. Plus you are hunting Black Tail which IMO is the hardest deer species to hunt out of the three.

That is the main reason why I backpack hunt, the challenge of going out there, real far away from roads or human signs, hunt and come back on your own!!! Just my thoughts. The type of hunting big game I enjoy the most.

Re: Have You Ever Backpack Hunted?

This past fall dear hunting season, I did not take a dear. I did, however, see smaller dear that I would have taken in my younger years of hunting. ( This is not a judgment on those that would have, just where I am ).
I did, however see a 350 Lb. beautiful black bear about 150 yards down hill from my position, Breeze blowing towards me, with the bears lack of knowledge of me.
These are memmories that I am now starting to show my 8 year old son.
So however you hunt keep up the great work everyone!

Many times, One of my more memorable, brother inlaw packed are gear and hung it in a garbage bag earlier, high in a tree. Day before opening, up the mountain we go, slight drizzle gain the top and set up spike. Well, hole in bag, so my sleeping bags is wet, I survive to about 4 am, wake up shivering , bone cold and say hey bro IM GOING hunting, see you on the mountain really looked forward to that sunrise Then there was that time I just about step on that rattler abuot 75 yards from camp..... oh and that grizz kill by camp.... the grizz in camp......grizz that ate camp.....
