Good to know Bob, any chance I can get a pic of your truck on the trip? That Toyota

Re: Western Hunt 2011- Rifle cow elk

Here is my truck as I am getting ready to leave home.

First I take out the rear seats to give me more inside room. Then I put on a cap and using the boat rack on the cap I bolt on a top box. After that I use the trailer hitch to put on a rear carrier which has a plastic patio box of very light items in it. I took both my broadhead target and my field points target with me.

It is important to try to get the weight centered over the wheels as much as possible because of camber/caster problems at the rear and steering at the front. The tires are off road tires and expensive so you do not wish to wear them unevenly.

I took three rifles and two pistols.

One 100 Qt cooler holds a elk calf deboned and two antelope cut and wrapped. 10# of dry ice freezes everything solid enough in a 5-day cooler for the trip home.

Years ago we traveled with our children. With 3 bikes on front and 2 on back, stuff on the roof, we called it our CLOWN CAR.

I like the set up on the truck, much better than hauling a trailer.
