    One thing I didn't see on the list is a SPOT a must have;if you hunt{solo like I do 90% of the time} solo/team and it can/will save your live it did for a buddy of mine.
    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    I've been looking at the SPOT but the mixed reviews make me wonder if it's worth the cost. I know it would be worth it's weight in gold if I needed it and it worked but it's a lot of money to pay if I can't get it to work.

    I also have the BL sacrifice and I'll get 4-5 days worth of supplies as well as camp in there or at least lashed to the outside.

    the Sept - Oct Eastmans bowhunting journal (just got it yesterday) has an exact list of what Guy Eastman takes on a 5 day hunt. Broken down by type, weight and what is in it. Very interesting!

    My pack for a 3 day hunt without consumables (food,water) and without spotting scope/tripod is 18.5 pounds, that is with a pack that weighs 8.5 pounds. I could very easily shave another 1.5 pounds off of that. No reason to carry 45 pounds on your back into the backcountry any more.

    I agree with MT I can see maybe 35lbs at the most. With a nice spotter and consumables. Unless you are on a tight budget and can't afford light weight things....
