I am planning a back pack hunt for the coming first rifle season which is 5 days long. Right now my pack weighs in at about 49lbs and the darn thing is bursting at the seams, that includes the weight of my rifle. I am packing in a 3 season tent as well. My 5 days of food consist of mountain house and candy/jerky. Most of this gear will be left at my spike camp and I will only have with me what I need to cut up a pack a critter. How do you think i am doing on weight? How heavy are your packs for a similar length trip and any gear tips?
