Not at all, stuff like this is seriously serious. Only serious hunters are even allowed.  >:( >:(

On another note since its 2021, here's my girlfriends equipment that she's taking on our first ALW scouting trip! We got the pack weight down to only 95lbs by electing to leave behind the stove. We figured with the fire danger so low recently that we would just cook over a campfire. The winds should keep it cool and stop the fire from getting out of hand.

Excited for this years high country hunt! I've never camped before so I elected for only backpacking 7 days solo instead of the 14 that I heard Aron Snyder talk about on his podcast. I've been running a couple miles a week so I'll be in fine shape I think!!!!

Just her pack! Figured I’d take the heavy one with the crampons.

I hope this thread takes off again. I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it.

This is a bit of a secret I learned, don’t tell anyone…… don’t use ski wax! Rendered bear fat is the ticket. I can get 2-3 more runs and it works really well for spark suppression. The flash point is much higher.

This was my high hunt camp last year. Thank God for that ice axe. And my studded 4wd Crocs.

Instead of nails for the studs I used the Iron Will broadheads I run in my self bow system. You never know when you’ll need an extra up there. Plus I’ve had to kick my way out of a pack of wolves up there before. Hopefully this year some high fires will push the wolves down into the bottom of the Methow where there’s no deer anyway  :bash:
