    is that a tarp over your tent? or just a sitting area?
    Actually both. Provides some UV protection for the tent, while allowing me to store my hunting gear and cook food in late summer thunderstorms that seem to follow me on hunts.

    Lots of good information and ideas here, thanks guys!

    I've considered not bringing a tent and instead just something to shield me from the rain, but I haven't done that yet. Despite the weight of a tent(its not a heavy tent) and rareness of early season snow, the tent is something I feel I should have. Anyone backpack without a tent?

    In David Long's book on hunting trophy mule deer, he gave a complete list of his back country gear.
    That is what I went off of for compiling my gear, and its a good read!!

    What are the dimensions? That's pretty light I use a 6x8 Equinox Egret Tarp at 16oz for a lean too for my gear and bow since I use a one man tent. I actually like the tarp to sit under, cook , and eat as well.
