2nd on the what part of idaho? And weight for me depends completely on length of trip. I can do the sub 40 for a few days, but if you’re going for a week or longer it’s hard to get under 50lbs. I’ve done a lot of backpacking and can easily backpack for a week with a 30lb bag, but hunting, especially in Idaho or other big country states added a lot of weight with the rifle, and optics. I mean your average guy has a rifle around 8-10lbs and at least 5lbs of optics. You can spend thousands cutting a few lbs. Be in good shape would be the best tip anyone could give if ya ask me.What part of Idaho. A 50lb pack will destroy you in some areas. My pack with rifle, etc is just under 40. Same with my partner who is a beast.
