    Backpack hunting advice

    I'm looking to do a backpack hunt with a buddy possibly in a year or two. Looking at bow hunting. I haven't narrowed an area down yet but am working on that, I applied for points in Montana and Wyoming.

    I am sure there are other posts on here already but here goes anyways.

    What's the best advice you can offer up to someone getting into backpack hunting?

    Thanks

    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Oh, and the best advice I have for you is to get the necessities and just get out there. I may not have the best stuff, and neither do my hunting buddies, but we get out there and have been able to get into animals. That, and just be mentally tough.

    Great advise^^^

    Do your research and keep your weight down.
    Buy the lightest equipment you can afford and don't skimp on your boots and socks. Wear boots that fit you, the only way to know is to try them on. Boots that fit someone perfectly may not fit you.
    Water purification is a must also.


    Good luck

    Do a few dry runs close to home, even if just overnighters here and there. You'll figure out what you really need to bring and what can be left at home.
