There was a long thread on backpacking hunting here not that long ago, which probably contains most of what all of us with experience have to say on the topic, which may be why you’re not getting a big response here (so far). If I could find it for you I would, but I can barely find my eyeglasses.:oops: There was a lot of good info in that thread, as I recall. My biggest concern about backpack hunting is that you have to carry the meat out, if you get lucky, along with all that backpack gear which is an extra trip. With elk or moose or bear, that can be near impossible. So as I age I’ve learnt to keep my backpack hunts reasonably short, just far enough to get away from the mobs and into undisturbed country. I do like the being-aloneness of it.
