    how much ammo??

    so how much ammo do others on site pack if on a backpack hunt, for week or more.?


    I generally just bring a box of twenty.

    I realize shouldn't need more then one per kill but have used as many as 4, though never more. so far!

    I just figure ,ammo is one thing worth packing a lil extra weight.
    better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it, type of thing.

    what thinks others??

    When I was hiking a way into a area I would usually have close to 40 rounds. A box of 20 in my pack, 3 or 4 rounds in the rifle, and another 10 or so in my cartridge carrier that was on my belt.

    Even now when I don't hike into a area to camp I will still pack the same amount but that box of 20 will usually say in the vehicle.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    one other thing I will mention is .. when backpacking with others I try to pick same caliber weapon as others ,(if possible). that way ,if one hunter does happen to run out(hasn't happened yet) he can borrow some backup.

    Four in the gun, three in an extra clip, and perhaps a half dozen in the backpack if staying away from the vehicle for extended period of time
