That looks heavy. Whatís the total weight?

Its not light, i dont really worry about weighing it, i just take the things i want/need. Were going into a place we've hunted before and i had a simliar gear list, plus a pistol, tripod and kifaru woobie.  Was using a lighter suckier bag back then. But its not an ultra light set up thats for sure.

Right on. Just curious. There was a guy posted on here about his deer hunt where his pack was around 100# GOiNG IN! To each there own.

I think I used to be around 65lbs going into a 4 day hunt :chuckle:

Amazing what proper food planning, replacing military issued gear, and just a tad less comfort can do for ya.

Regarding first aid...throw a few tampons in there. Most wounds in the field are puncture wounds.

I like where your head's at but the urban legend of tampons for wound packing has been disproven many times over and I've seen it first hand with live tissue training. I bring a small package of rolled gauze, israeli dressing, quick clot, tape, decompression needle and CAT tourniquet. Luckily have never had to use any of it but a good med kit is often overlooked.

For the meat care section, I'll bring in an emergency "foil" blanket that comes in tiny package and weighs nothing. I'll use this to lay out when boning out meat prepping for game bags. This helps keep meat clean and doesn't eat up space and weight. Never know if you may need that blanket for other reasons too.

 :tup: good thinking! Iíve been packing  a small  lightweight tarp for this but never thought of dual purposing the space blanket

I do the same thing except I have a homemade sil nylon tarp with loops sewn in the corners.  I can pitch it in two minutes for a rain shelter to glass from and then use it again to keep meat off the dirt.  I haven't weighed it, but it's very light and surprisingly durable.
