    Packing Lite

    These are just sort of my thoughts on Packing Lite. I am a minimalist style hunter, but I think a little bit of discomfort is by far an advantage at times in terms of going lightweight and far.

    I'm surprised that you use a 8lb pack. There are plenty of great packs out there that weigh pounds less.

    I'd like to see what is in the pack myself.

    I honestly need to be better keeping fit and eating better than I have been as late. The holiday parties with all the treats and food will make even the lightest pack hard for me to get up and down the mountain soon . Seriously I'd like to see the pack list too. There are some good pack list threads on here but there is always room for some more ideas or options.

    There are some decent packs out there, but few that are worth their salt. I wore an Eberlestock blue widow and it was toast after 2 years of hunting. I now run a mystery ranch. Kuiu packs don't hold up either, and i have also wrecked blacks creeks and badlands packs. The only other pack I think that would most likely hold its own for a lighter weight is one of the new stone glaciers, or a Kifaru. I don't like the build of the kifarus, so stone glacier would be my only other option. I have a buddy who goes 8 days in the high country on 22lbs for everything loaded in his pack. Im not quite that good, but staying under 30 is still feasible even with an 8lb pack.

    You guys wanted it, here it is. This is everything I carry with me for hunts during september. If I know that it is going to get very wet or snowy in the high country I will throw in a set of Sitka dewpoint raingear as well, and possibly a tarp. http://kunderwoodblog.wordpress.com/...g-lite-part-2/

    Wow, not much to that pack, thats impressive. So, you don't carry any first aid items? Thats not much food, I'm a little guy, and I'd be starving with just that to eat.
    Do you only carry the havalon knife, you don't carry a fixed blade or folding knife as well?

    Props to you, I could never be a minimalist.
