    Glad to see you did your homework. Like others have said you need to get into great shape for a bow hunt. I had a buddy come out from Iowa to hunt elk with archery tackle a few years ago. He trained for 6 monthe before he headed out and it made all of the difference. Good luck man.

    buy a good pair of boots and get in shape. When you thing you are in good shape, you are about half way there.

    Already started training for the hunt....been accumulating some equipment over that last few years. I bought a Eberlestock Blue Widow pack, a Vortex Viper HD spotting scope, new range finder, and most importantly a pair of Meindl's.

    Any other suggestions?

    Make sure you have a good, dependable set of rain gear. The archery seasons are early, and often the weather is pretty good, but you can still get hammered by nasty storms in the higher elevations. We spend time up the Greys River every year at the end of July/early August, and last year we got hit with a storm that dumped 2" of hail in about 15 minutes - and that was in the river valley and not on the peaks!

    If you like to fish, make sure and bring a fly rod or spinning reel as the fishing that time of year can be pretty good. You can't beat the scenery either!

    I have been using a pair of Meindl's for 2 years now. They are great boots. Make sure you spend a lot of time breaking them in, they are stiff as hell at first.
