Here is a packing list I made for my backpack with the weights. I created this last year for my first elk hunt last Sept in Montana. Some items are personal preference and some are necessary. More experienced hunters may have advice on if it needs to be tweaked. Hope this helps!

Depending on who u r hunting with and where..just ask the outfitter about if its worth buying a bear tag...we always advise our Hunters to focus on the elk, mainly because we rarely see black bears...to many grizzlies!!
