No matter what I do, I can't get my pack down to a lighter weight for my goat hunt. I believe that everything I need is in the pack. I don't believe I'm carrying anything un-useful. This is just a weekend hunt for goat. Next week I have 4 days to hunt goat solo....how do you guys get such a light pack? Alot of you talk about a pack that only weighs 30-40 pounds !
Here is my list.... Anything that you would remove?
2 game bags
7 power bars
2 glow sticks (lights up the tent)
1 50ft nylon rope
1 bone/wood saw
20 ft parachute cord
field dressing latex gloves
2 small knives (with sharpener)
1 pr. long johns
2 xtra pr socks
dead sled (it is a solo hunt)
mole skin for blisters (which I easily get)
1 lightweight flare
1 polar fleece jacket
4 xtra AA batteries (GPS & flashlight)
4 firestarter sticks
pack cover (suppose to be wet this weekend)
1 garbage bag
2 H2O bottles
1 titanium cup
1 backpackers bear fence (meat protection / me protection)(this is Eagle River Valley ya know.....LOTS OF BEARS )
Anything you guys would add/or subtract? Seems like I always have around 60 #. Any advice?
Thanks in advance...
