First question other than rain gear what is the opinion on hoods bad or good? A backcountry hiker friend of mine said I might want to get a new soft shell hunting jacket since mine has a hood and the alders will hang me with it.
I did some pack rafting this summer prior to my shoulder surgery, and I used to white water kayak. Has anyone successfully used a packraft to bring out their sheep?
If so did you float the meat in it and line it down river or did you just paddle out with the meat and all?
If you paddled out what size pack raft did you use and how did it perform under that load?
I have a long hard road to get back into shape after two injuries and a major surgery, but I am really excited for the experience of hunting in the beautiful (and harsh) high country. If I get to kill a legal ram well that is icing on the cake.
