    Packing in isn't for everybody. I think the important thing is to keep in mind our common goal and not subclassify ourselves because that is when we get weaker as a community and our rights and way of life may be infringed upon. I gurantee big bucks/bulls are killed in every style of hunting every year so it's hard to say one style is better than the other.

You get to big game hunt out west AND get to backpack into the backcountry! I can see where that would be way more appealing than other hunts... especially hotel hunts.
    Hey I'm from Alabama. You singling me out??? lol There isn't a lot of "backcountry" here. More like the "back 40" with a road all the way to it.

    Montbell UL SS3 30 degree bag, Montbell UL pillow, Hyalite 2/3 sleeping pad, GoLite Shangri-la 2, and Tyvek ground cloth. Tent pitches with trekking poles which is standard equipment for me anyways. All told, total sleep/shelter system comes in between 4.5 and 5 pounds. Drops even more if I split the Tyvek and tent flysheet with a hunting partner, but light enough to serve 1 guy well too.

    This has been a neat thread to track, lots of different viewpoints - none right, none wrong - just shows how many different places a Western hunter can be coming from.

    I'm a flatlander that chose the backpack route just to save time. I can camp at the truck and hike in 2 miles from two separate trailheads or I can backpack in and sleep between them. So with only 7 days to spend I try to maximize my time in elk country. With that said a heavy pack sucks and good gear is crazy expensive. It's definitely a love/hate relationship.
