I know this thread is old but hopefully I can get some more out of it. Been looking at unit 24 hard to do a backpack hunt off the trailhead a ways for 2nd rifle season this fall and have been using google earth a lot too scout the land.
Seems like a lot of public forest service land and hopefully not much for an atv area, don't wanna be hunting with people running around on atvs and wanna get off the well beating path some to hopefully work hard for some success.
Anyone have any advice for a first timer? Looking to load up the Eberlestock
's at the trail head and head out a ways for a couple days and set up tents and camp out there a ways to get in the back country.
Any tips on gear, clothing, strategy, food ect would be great
