Back in 2000, I was running a flannel shirt, a Cabelas Alaskan pack frame and an 8 lbs Slumberjack sleeping bag in the ALW.   I believe my pack, complete with 8 days worth of food and a 7mm ultra mag topped with the biggest scope that leupold made at the time, came in at a nice even 80 lbs.  😂

80 lb. infill pack...Now THAT is a Fine & Pleasant Misery.  Haha...awesome!

appreciate the McManus reference!  :tup:  Today's crowd calls it a "suffer fest".
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

I think anyone toting in an 80 lb pack must have lots of real food in it.  We'd take steaks, potatoes, Oberto sausages and other goodies and whine about the weight.  Next year would be freeze dried.... and we'd whine about that.  Heaviest pack in was 85 lbs and I ate good that trip.  Lightest was 61 lbs and I appreciated the cooking smells emanating from the horse camps.

Observation- it's snows in September in the high country.

Back when gear was heavy I spent August scouting and packing in food and staging water. Probably some stuff still stashed in places. If you see a burnt out hollow stump with some rock's stuffed in it take a peak..you may be the lucky recipient of some beans or spaghetti o's

You win the Internet. 
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
