    What sleeping bags would you recomend. I have about narrowed down my choice on sleeping pads and tents. I need to find me a sleeping bag now.

    You cannot get a better bag IMO than a Western Mountaineering bag... They are down bags, superlite and very compressable... Not very easy on the wallet but... You get what you pay for!

    I agree Western Mountaineering bags are the best I know of. Its the best I have tried. My gear has changed a lot since I first backpacked in for elk about 9 years ago. I would recommend taking a 4-season tent just in case. It could be t-shirt weather or you could be tracking in snow, and occasionally you get to do both in the same day. Beating snow off your tent all night to keep it from collapsing is not the most fun. The 4-season tents I have used you sometimes don't even know it is snowing until you hear it slide off the tent. They do tend to be heavier. A two man Sierra Designs I used in the past weighs around 11 lbs. I currently use a Hilleberg Soulo, which is about 5.5 lbs including footprint. This is the best tent I have ever used. Expensive, but I would have saved money if I had just started out with this one. Several options to save weight, but being able to set up in the rain without getting the inside wet is a big plus.

    Ranchhand I am an Okie as well doing my first DIY hunt this year. I have started putting together my gear as well and I have a western mountaineering badger bag and a 4 man seek outside tipi with a stove. I am hunting with my brother so we can split the weight.
