I'm starting to get my gear together for Colorado this fall. I'll hunt from a main camp for a while (10,300ASL) and if the weather is "good" I'll make a spike camp about 5 miles into the wilderness area and live at 12,000ASL for a few days. I've having the dickens of a time getting a good pack list for the trip to spike camp. I'd like to hike out with my wife but my gear is going to be pretty heavy. Looks like I'll be carrying about 60 to 65lbs and Cheryl will carry about 25lbs. I've bought a ton of new gear and believe I may invest (can that be done with rifles???) in a lightweight rifle (lighter than 15lbs ). I'll be in the La Garita Wilderness I believe, not down near Manassa like last year. Cheryl likes the scenery better up in the Northern area. Any backpacking hunt advice??
