    I hunt in pretty rugged country, but for me, it seems like somewhere around the 7 mile mark. I am a backpack guy and so I try to avoid horse hunters, so I look for trails that are hard on horses or...

    I wasn't fortunate enough to pull a tag for my section of the snake river. I am going to be shooting a camera though as my hunting buddy was still fortunate enough to pull a tag.

    I know two different guys that broke the KUIU frame on backcountry hunts. One on a 2011 pack one on a 2012. They might have it fixed but that alone is enough to cause me to shy away from their packs.

    The nuts are about the same as the mojo bar, but adding some nuts instead of more bars gives you more variety and a greater variety of nutrients. Powdered peanut butter is something that isn't easy...
