Okay so it was raining this morning so I thought I would do a "dry" run of all my gear for an AK range walk in this year. This is not all-inclusive (no food... or whiskey), but pretty close. I'm happy with the 36# weight of everything I have on this list - I figured I would throw it out there to you guys (and gals) to give some feedback. Please don't be rude or brutal; this is my 4th sheep hunt (2 in AK range and 2 in Chugach) and I've lived in AK for 35 years... I get it. I'm trying to be minimal and smart and most of my gear has been tried and tested before. I'm just pumped to get into the mountains again!!
