Pics of your backcountry camp
« on: March 17, 2012, 10:33:17 AM »
Thought I would get this forum started off. Lets see some pics of your backcountry camps, either spike camps or bivy camps...etc...whatever you may have, strictly backcountry though. I am fairly new to spike camping, but here is a pic of mine from last year deer season.

What kind of tent is that? It looks awful big and heavy for a backpack hunt. I've done several back country hunts with outfitters, drop camping, but I've gotten real interested this year in backpack hunting. I want to get a few years in before I'm too old to carry a pack around in the mountains.

I'm using a Whelen lean to made out of tafeta nylon from Beckel canvas in portland. W/o the nylon ropes i have on it, it weighs 5lbs. 6lbs as is now. You can stand up to dress under it. the neat thing is you build your fire in front for heat and cooking. I use a piece of tyvek for a sleeping floor. This unit shelters 2 guys and all their gear. works well early season up to nov. best of all no poles to carry.

Its just a regular three sleeper tent I guess (cheapo special Ive had for years..I know, I need to upgrade)....I know its oversized for backpacking, but it really isnt all that heavy and I like a little space.  My bro and I have been discussing going into that area this summer and just setting up a lean to, from all the dead trees laying about. Then, just packing a tarp instead of the tent along.

Thanks for sharing Washelk....I need to learn the ways of more xperienced back country boys.

First picture is high country bear hunting camp.

Second picture is another high country bear camp.  Third pic is view from camp at sunset.   :tup:

Fourth pic is our "backcountry" base camp that we bring in 4.5 miles by bike.  Last pic is one load of deer camp coming out.

This year the weather was nice and forcasted to be hot and clear the whole time I was in country, the previous year it was heavy rain and snow, so glad I took my tent.   IT was NASTY.   Survival at best.  I was certainly glad to have both the orange fly and my little tent.

Hey, Bone, do you use a 4 season tent when you take one? Seems like every time I've been in the high country, the weather can change drastically, real fast. I want to be prepared.
