Ok so the winter is still long from over and August is still all too far away. I thought it'd be fun to compare and contrast all our gear lists. (I know I'm not the only one on here with one)
If we get enough lists on here from members we could possibly make it a sticky for new members to get an idea of what kinds of things different hunters bring on their sheep hunts. I'll be the first to put myself on the chopping block, for some "constructive???" criticism.
Notice that there is 3 different totals. One if if I were to go in solo. (Pack weight). The next is (shared weight) which is basically the items shared and halfed in order show the weight if we equally distribute the weight between myself and my hunting partner what I can expect my pack to weigh which is basically the "pack weight after shared" which is the first total with the shared weight subtracted.
Granted I haven't added clothing and food at this point. Haven't weighed those out yet so thats TBD. I'll update it as I iron that out. I was also going to put a dollar amount next to each item and totalize that, but then I realized it'd be a bad item to actually see how much money I have wrapped up in only 50 some pounds of gear. YIKES!!!
Also I apologize, I have this in an excel spreadsheet, but the forum doesn't seem to allow for .XLS files so I just copy pasted to Microsoft Word. Maybe a more computer savvy mod knows something I don't. In the mean time if someone would like an XLS copy, so you can input your own items and weights and have it calculate the totals for your gear, feel free to PM me your e-mail address and I'll send it out to ya.
Ok lets hear it guys, how bad am I messing up in stuff missing or not needed. I realize all this is subject to people's opinions, but I guess I'll be the first to be in front of the firing squad. So fire away.
