Re: Backpack Camping
I backpack/bivy hunt for a week almost every year in Colorado. I love it! The 2 most important things I can say is get in shape, and remeber that every ounce feels like a pound in your pack. Be sure to get a pack that fits YOU, and has a lot of adjustment for fit and load distribution. I also buy my food at the supermarket, no need for expensive dehydrated "market maeals". You want hight calorie foods that weigh very little. Also it goes without saying that your boots should be well broken in. The most essential thing in backpacking is water! Always know where your nearest water source is and have a reliable purification system, and preferable a back up. I prefer a 1 man tent, while my patner prefers a bivy sack, check out both. A good sleeping bag and pad can be a life saver on cold nights. And lastly be sure to test all your gearat home several times before you head out!
There is no "Catch and Release" in the world of hunting!!!!
