No need for crampons if you hunt the high buck in August.  :twocents:

If you're not hunting in a spot that requires crampons then you're probably in a spot that requires tampons  :twocents:

If I had to pick between my crampons and my oxygen tank.... I'd probably just stay home. No need to go in unprepared just to end up dead on the mountain  :bdid:
 

What’s your thought on bringing both? Tampons and crampons. Thinking strategically if I can’t man up to get to the high hunt where I need crampons I will still be prepared for the low country with my tampons? Not adding much weight, good idea? I Just like to always have a plan a and plan b type strategy.

If you aren't on your trip already, I would bag it for this year.  No way you can acclimatize for the final push by the time season starts.  Be safe fellow hunters, no deer is worth your lives and that of your porters.

You saying to just hunt c-post  :chuckle:

Well for those that were planning or anticipating hunting the Paysayten unless you go in from the west side Panther Creek or  from the iron Gate area,, the Cub creek fire has  most access sites closed I.e. Billy Goat, Andrew's Creek, Thirty Mile, Cedar Creek Fire has  Hart's Pass, Robinson Creek closed about only way in the areas normally accessed via thes trail heads would be via the PCT at Rainey Pass, which is going to be one heck of a looooonnnnggg day in the sadlle

You guys ever see any bears up there in the clouds.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Which explains why you never see bears with tampons.

Entertainment?

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!!!!

Best comment in this entire dumpster fire of a thread by a wide margin LOL

Does the Sitka patterns or the Kuiu patters make me more invisible on the High Hunt?

Those aren’t for being invisible, those are for being seen… by other hunters  :chuckle:
