    I am all about doing whatever it takes to tag a nice buck or bull. For my deer hunts I hunt above timberline and do almost all back pack hunts. For elk I hunt the dark timber during late October and November and I stay in a base camp or my own bed and do day trips. The thought of backpacking in seem to be a bad ass thing these days. It is actually very expensive, physically demanding, and damn lonely if you are solo. It tries you mentally and physically but can be very rewarding if you succeed. I believe you can hunt both ways out west and be a successful hunter.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    I have to backpack hunt in my area just to consistently see animals. More than once I've been packing out a buck early in the morning and pass day hunters on the trail still heading to their hunting spot. I don't always backpack, but I've seen my success rate skyrocket since I started.

    absolutely yes it is, I'm starting to loose my youthfulness and its a major bummer when I can't into where I use to!! And it's about the only time I see any game is in the backcountry miles from any road!!
