    Mallard, it looks like the pack angle is far worse than it's weight! :-)

    So this was sans tent and sleeping apparel, and about half the meat and the hide. I don?t think I could have made it in one trip without help. This was around 60-80# of Goat and 25# of pack and contents. Fully loaded for this hunt last year with 6 days of food and rifle, optics, total weight with me on the scale was 50#. Normal pack runs 20-25# depending on the time of year not counting rifle or bow. Pack weighs about 6#.

    I'm right at 30# for 7 days for high country mule deer with spotter and tripod. Elk hunting is lighter since I don't bring spotter and tripod. This excludes weapon, water, and food. With everything including food, water, and weapon I'm just over 50 pounds for 7 full days. I too have a excel spreadsheet with each line item and it's weight. It helps a ton to mark what is needed, what isnt, and what I may need to buy to get a lighter pack. For me it is sleeping pad and tripod are the biggest ones that will drop me a couple pounds minimum.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    That?s a fantastic weight I?d love to see your Excel sheet to compare notes if you wouldn?t mind posting. Always looking to improve

    UPDATE: I recently picked up an Eberlestock Nosegunner & pack suspension kit, seems great at initial setup. So with that attached, filled with binos & my kimber w/loaded mag, along with rangefinder I came in at 18.3lbs. Add 3-4lbs for water and food and a 9lb rifle gets me right around 30. I love my mainframe and its well distributed so no complaints here. C’mon October!!
