Equipment for Backpack Hunting
I am from Fl and am I love hunting the hills out west. This past year in Idaho I got a rude awakening. I am in great shape for FL, but found I needed to work on my legs alot more for walking up those steep mountains for a week. I also needed a better backpack for hauling out meat as well as better fitting boots.
I had a great hunt, and shot a nice 5x5 mulie at 350yds while he was bedded, but we hiked in and out every day and stayed in a hotel. We hunted walk-in only areas and walked many miles a day, mostly up and down .
Much of the walking was in and out of the areas to get away from the other hunters who were closer to the roads.
It would be great to be able to hike out and stay out for a while.
What equipment would you experienced backpack hunters recommend?
We may even need to start a separtate thread for different equipment. Backpacks, tents, sleepingbags,etc.
