There is a lotta crap that can be left off that list. Sounds like someone who is real paranoid about being outdoors. Hell half the fun is wondering if you'll make it back.

Moosie,

Just think what you could do with a chainsaw and a couple of gallons of gas.

Come to think of it what would you do with a chainsaw and a couple of gallons of gas?

That list must be the RVer's guide to survival in the improved campgrounds when the power goes out.

Denture repair kit? :confused: :confused:

with a 70 something pound pack, I'd call lone wolf and order a summit XL (15 oz) or a summit (20 oz) stock for that rifle, they are pricy but getting a rifle down around 6# isn't a bad thing.

Man you idaho guys are pussies. Up here in Montana we go hunting in country twice as remote and 3x as steep wearing jeans and tennisshoes with nothing but a school backpack, contents a box juice, a biscuit, and a small block of cheese. This usually gets us by for 10 days or more. Why you need all that gear ?

Just kidding, but man your list seems long.

We do have a guy who is an elk hunting fanatic up here who was in the Pakistani army. He goes out for 6-7 days stretches with nothing but a blanket and small amounts of food. He says nothing could compare to what hes been thru.

ROCKY dog... NOTE that the Above list ISN'T (That's "IS NOT") my backpack list. Below is my 8 day Sheep hunting list.

Note: I don't have the cot or denture repair kit on it, but I think I'll survive ;)

Ah yes - I can remember going backpacking (at age 17) with jeans, wool gloves and shirt, a letterman jacket, a wool watch cap, a Sears Dacron bag, a grasshopper stove and a few packages of Lipton instant soup or DriLite beef stroganoff - in January at 11,000 feet with 5 or 6 feet of snow on the ground. It was 8 degrees at 7 PM. We used to do that several times a year. To be young, in great shape and stupid once again!

Cali,

Too bad about losing the battle with Father Time and the Waistline, but take comfort in knowing you were able to hold on to the 3rd criteria... :D

Moosie,

Take a roll of black electrical tape.A little over the muzzel of your gun will keep crap from getting in it.

funter.. On a Serious note .. (Liek the above wasn't ;) ) I wrap the End of my Barrle (About 2" down about 8-10 times with Electrical tape. then, I cover the Tip and HAve in field, on hand replacement if I tshoot through it.

I did a teat at the range and the Tape doesn't effectthe shooting, Although If I have time, I take it off before pulling the trigger.

Rocky dog, Camo Undies is what I will be wearing ;) Thanx for the Well wishes :D
