I am going to the brooks on a walk in hunt for sheep this fall. I can't decide what I should bring for a tent. I am planning to go in past the 5 mile point and will be rifle hunting.
I have a couple options to go with.
I have a bivy bag (that I don't like much as it is very small and restricting) that I plan to take. it is 1 pound.
I have a silnylon 10x10 tarp that I sewed beaks on - weighs 2 pounds with stakes and guys. I use my hiking poles to pitch it.
I also have a Nallo 3 GT that weighs 6 pounds with everything. I could pull the inside out and leave it behind and I could also ditch the ground footprint for it too.
I am not budgeting for a new tent - but the thought has crossed my mind to get a small tipi (I have a 12 man Kifaru that I like).
Which would you take - and why?
I am leaning pretty hard towards the tarp. I'll try them all this summer on weekend backpack trips.
