    Make your pack as light as possible and then lighten up more, take plenty of water and purification tablets, get your pack adjusted right, don't forget to carry the t.p., pack an extra pair of glasses, get in shape and when you get there . . . slow down!

    If you haven't got a light but steady tripod you'll have a hard time seeing much of anything. Make sure you know how to use your gps. Wardens and biologists are usually willing to talk and can be very helpful, as can taxidermists. Get a merino base layer and socks.

    Keeping the pack light is very important.

    There will days of pure suffering.

    It is going to hurt.

    There will be times you will be afraid.

    Keep going.

    You can always walk another mile, but you can never take back surrender.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    Take good pictures, and start a photo album or a facebook album and put a description of the year and the area of your photos. Always get good and hydrated before you leave the truck, and know your surroundings. Buy a headlamp and hike in when its dark get on top and put your good glass to work! Enjoy yourself and your surroundings, and a good buddy to hunt with always makes a hunt better. The 160 mule deer in my garage that i packed out 5 miles of the biggest ****hole by myself on the last day to hunt means alot more then the 185 hanging in the house that was shot less then a mile from the road first day of season.

    I'll add...

    Hunt more. Even if it isn't a great unit, the only way to improve your hunting skills and competence is to do it.

    Establish where Hunting is in priorities. When a conflict comes up make the decision according to the priority.

    i'm from utah and we hunt the high country as well. Since you're accustomed to the altitude and rugged terrain i don't need to get into the importance of getting in shape. My advice would be to get a good backpack, and get as high as you can (not smoking pot high).

    Good info right there! Seems like a lot of guy's only wanna hunt if they can kill a trophy animal. Problem is once they're there they may not have the skills to get it done. Then there's disappointment...
