With the amount of money this trip will cost be sure to invest in quality gear - especially boots and a pack. From what I hear about Alaska Dall hunts I would be sure to have good rain gear as well.
Sorry - I'm late on the post I see you have already purchased a pack.
If your willing to spend the money! Mystery ranch is the pinnicle of hunting packs! I wouldn't go with an eberlestock tactical pack! But d look at the j134, x2, and the x1!
I went dall sheep hunting in 2010 and used a Blackcreek Barbarian. Just make sure you have a good rain fly. Good luck!
That's what I have and really like it as well, good choice and good luck on your hunt
i really love the dragonfly. i have been useing it around here and seeing what i can get packed in it. I think I can pack more into it than I need. Now if August would only get here.
