I'm heading in on a 10 day solo fly-in sheep trip Aug 8th. My buddy is doing a walk in from the road with a second hunter. My pack weighs in at 65 lbs, and he said his weighs in at 45 lbs.
I'm trying to cut some weight. I'm using a Barney's Pinnacle in Kevlar, a Sako .270 WSM (light), pack weight is with 2 liters of water, taking 20 bullets, swaro spotter with cullman tripod, 2 man northface tent, sleeping bag, shoulder to butt sleeping pad, jet-boil with dehy food (10 days worth), etc.
I'm not going extravagant, and I'm suprised the weight added up so quickly.
Am I in the ball park with your pack weights, or am I about the same as you guys? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
