    Stone Glacier Solo and Krux Frame

    Bought in 2013. I am keeping the frame. Bag is for sale $180. Some small stains. Has the center row of webbing. I use this to hook my tripod on. You can mount any lids to these by hooking a strap to the bottom. I have ran all the kifaru lids and the terminus bag lid on this bag for years...

    Heavy or light??

    I ponder this every so often. If you have an elk down, most of us can bone out and pack out in 3 loads. Is there a preference in the weight distribution on the loads. Do you load heavy when you are freshest, or save your feet and legs for a heavy push at the end. - start heavy and finish...

    Leupold VX-6

    I am not very savvy when it comes to optics, so keep any responses nice and simple for me. First: I have a VXII 4-12 in for some service right now. I am seriously looking at the VX-6 for its 3-18 mag range. I am not convinced that I want to carry a spotting scope, so I want to be able to use...

    REI "Dash 2" tents

    I saw this yesterday, and was pretty impressed. Very similar to the BA Fly Creek without the issues that people hate. They put a side entrance on it and added the spreader bar at the foot end like you get with a Fly Creek 3 to help open up the foot area better.

    First thread on a great forum

    I wanted to the first one to post a thread!! How cool am I...... Question I have: I enjoy hunting with the family, but I find myself conflicted. I seem to have more desire to spike out on my own. Does that make us "no fun"? It is hard to find a balance.

    Idaho bucks

    I decided to try out of state this year. My Brother and I found a mutual friend that has been hunting ID backcountry for a few years, and was willing to show us around. We ended up in the Frank Church. Good time. People were starting to stack up, so we took these guys after 3 days of covering a...

    First Solo ID Elk Hunt

    After a few hundred hrs of weighing gear, conditioning, and staring at google earth, I was as ready as I would ever be for my first out of state hunt. My goal was to find a big wilderness area that I could get lost in. The Frank Church won out. After 2 days I had to abandon my spike camp and get...

    New meal Pack list....

    Here is what I have: I have targeted 5 small meals per day. I was up around 140cal/oz(which sounded unrealistic) until I loaded up a full day and weighed it as a package. I think the "packaging add" is just a function to quickly bring it into perspective so i am not using bad data. I used about...

    Marmot Never Summer 0 deg down bag

    This could be old news, but REI has last years models on sale for $168 for the short and $175 for the long. This is on until they are gone. I thought this was too good to pass up, and I was really in need of a bag in this range.

    Which Pack?

    The new solo 3300. I got the meat bag and the gun holder. Pretty impressed with the fit and the weight. This should allow me to retire my day pack depending on the hunt specifics. I don't have any water on here. I have never used a bladder for water. I have a little work to do, but this is...

    how to keep your feet in good shape

    I am covering alot of conditioning miles every week now looking forward to some serious packing this fall. I hope this also helps to toughen up my feet. I wear wool socks when hunting. I sweat alot on my feet, and they always give out before the rest of me does. I was going to pick up one of...

    Pack in Idaho hunt 2013

    I am trying to get my plans together for my first hunt trip in Idaho. I normally look to pack into wilderness areas away from roads and ATV's. I was looking at the november hunt for deer and elk in 20A, 26, or 27. It looks like people have pretty good success in the late hunt here, and I don't...
