    Help me to check my boxes for my elk hunt this year

    Love my first need water filter.. heavy but it purifies and has been rock solid. You might want to build a cozy for the dehydrated meals. Use duct insulation and build a little bag to put the mountain house bag in. Helps it cook and stay warm.

    338 rum and 270eld x load data needed

    Thanks.. So would bullet shape/length matter? I know with all copper bullets they are longer per weight than lead bullets so this influences case capacity.

    Advice on lightweight hunting pack

    I was thinking of maybe some type of light frame that could be paired with a daypack. And then with a bigger backpack as well.. but the frame would be light but able to haul weight. Have to admit..the idea of getting a good light backpacking pack and having a quiet cover is an interesting idea.
