    So I'm going on a long pack in hunt with my cousin and a buddy from on here. (Live2hunt)

    We've done pack hunts before but not this long of one. Mostly 1 and 2 night deals.

    There could possibly be snow. This is for elk.

    I want to see what you would bring. From the simplest of an extra pair of socks to a g7 rangefinder. Literally anything and everything you would bring.

    We're most planning on bringing hotdogs and sandwich meat for food. Anything else?

    Definitely TP! And the scotch and whiskey for sure! Lol

    If you're (back)packing everything in I'd think carrying in light-weight freeze dried food might be a better idea than heavier alternatives. It would provide some extra variety too.
    Just a thought.

    Jet boil, some granola bars, sleeping bag, pillow. By my calculations to function normally with the amount of beer I drink daily that would leave me room for four 30 racks. And yes it does suck carrying 4 30 racks of coors light but you have to look at the bright side, you don't have to carry them back out.

    I would definitely do that, unfortunately it's 9 hours away so basically we will scout the 2 days prior to opener and then we're off.

    That's what the whiskey and scotch are for! Once we run out we have the good stuff! Lol

    Definitely got the pack saw covered! Picked up a first aid kit also. I like the paracord idea. I usually have two extra boot laces and always use them to tie random stuff.

    There’s always baby wipes in my pack!
