My Uncle and I are going to Montana to go elk and mule deer hunting in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The Outfitter is saying to try and limit it to about 40lbs. I've never gone out west hunting so I'm curious to what everyone here takes with them. The outfitter sent us something of what they suggest, but would like to get more opinions because what works for one guy doesn't always work for another. I know my uncle said he was going with his usual western setup (he goes yearly) and wear uninulated gore-tex and then just layer underneath. What do you guys wear? What would you suggest to a guy that's used to doing his hunting in NC/VA treestands? We will be going end of Oct into Nov. Any suggestions on a lightweight but warm sleeping bag that won't break the bank? I'll be taking my semi-custom 30-06 (22" barrel) with me and plan to shoot at most 2-300 yards. I was thinking 168gr berger classic hunters. I've searched and searched and haven't seen anything about them in regards to elk so was curious if anyone used them last year? If not them, I was thinking 168gr accubonds or TTSX's (assuming I can find either of them). Thank you for the suggestions and help!
