Excellent sir! But, you take substantially more than I do. Being much younger, you can probably haul it around the airport easier than me!

Thanks to you and (I assume) your son for the great info!

Looks good, very basic and too the point
My daughter packs more for an overnight trip
Yes tried to keep it short and to the point. No time to discuss each and every thing.
Thanks!

Great video and breakdown for packing. Now if only I could get my better half to adhere we would be golden.

Wade— normally gaiters are shorter than u use for snow—idea being keeping stickers and thorns from working their way in to your shoes. Just make sure they aren’t noisy. If nyon try using downy fabric softener to quiet them down. Philip— nice job— missed u at Dallas. Hi to the family. Jacques

@Philip Glass
I noticed you mentioned gaiters. What type of gaiters are used for this type of hunting?
I always use gaiters but ones designed for snow or water more than anything else.
The lightweight ones from Boyt are pretty good but there are leather ones as well. Africa Sporting creations and others have them. You only need them if wearing shorts.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
