Wood stove for high buck.
« on: August 21, 2018, 02:38:06 PM »
Iím doing the pasayten this year for the second time. Last year an ultralight wood stove would have been sweet with all the snow. Is snow and colder temps pretty typical for that area and time of year or is it a total roll of the dice where I will most likely be packing around a stove in an area too dry to use it safely?

Last yearís September weather was very unusual. Weíve had many seasons where burn bans were in effect during September. Iíd be suprised if we had another snowy September this year.

It's a toss up. Best bet is to review a good weather forecast the day before you leave and make necessary adjustments. Some years will be like last year, some years it will be sunny and 70.

I would absolutely recommend an ultralight Ti stove if I were heading into the Pasayten and was serious about staying a few days. :twocents:

First day of the high hunt last year I was hiking in 75 degree weather with a tank top on, came down mid week and went back up to find 4 inches of snow. You just never know!

I don't think a Ti stove will make or break your pack weight, might as well toss 'er in. However, I am not bringing mine for a 5 day hunt.

I did the Pasayten a few year ago and had a similar experience.  Going in at 75+ degrees, then over the week we had snow, ice, rain, and more sun. Morning temps were in the 20s a few days and the rain was so hard every stream was raging. I never felt a stove would have been useful, more to carry and more work at camp. Good tents, tarps, clothes, and other gear is enough IMO.

Bumping an old thread as it's a related topic. Considering taking my TiGoat titanium stove and tipi with me on a high buck hunt next week. As with all of the high-buck hunts they are in wilderness areas so I figured I'd ask those that have done it before what the legalities are of using a tent stove in a wilderness area. I was under the impression that they were a no-go?

Pretty sure you can use a stove in any wilderness. Some wildernesses will have areas that you cant have open fires in certain basins though

Many wilderness areas or back country only allow the canister fuel.  For your jet boils or along those lines.  Legally.

Researched it a bit and it says that stoves are approved but I wasnt sure if that meant jetboils or hot tents. Thanks
