Wow ! I just went back through this thread. I had no idea when I started this it would take on its own life.
I now plan to hunt gmu 751 in sw co. Huge wilderness area with fewer hunters and a few good bulls. I have been looking at packs , boots ,sleeping bags , stoves and tents. Going to look for the pack and tent I want used after season. If I can't find used I will order all new about the first of feb. I picked up a 7mm wsm
and put back 2/3 of the equipment money I've planned for at new price. If I can find a few used deals this winter I may already be working lic. gas and food
. The support and encouragement I have gotten is just too much! This is a great community!
