Sleeping bag is a cabelas unit I will have to check the name didn't have it stuffed down to weigh it so can't tell you what it weighs today maybe next week.

Forget what the poles are, just bought a new pair this year busted one coming out last year. They have the clamp style adjuster's.

I prefer the 40 Oz size of medicine/fire starter. I also add about 2 oz of concentrated cola from those pop making machines. Nothing cures whatever is the problem like a mountain rum and coke at the end of the day.

And I run the Kuiu 7000 pack which weighs 5lbs 12oz. Been working it and me out and it seems pretty sweet so far. Nice to have a lite pack from the North Face I ran before.

I don't see salt on a lot of lists
In the main area I hunt, I've hindin 15 pounds of salt, in 4 plastic bottles and marked with GPS,
I don't pack salt anymore, it's already there, saves on pack weight

This year for a 10

day hunt , I trimmed all my food packs and saved 68 grams, it's not a lot, but it all adds ups

Not taking extra para cord or rope because, I have 6, 30" lengths on my tent, that can be borrowed if needed

This year I'm using a tent that uses my trekking poles as its poles, it also uses about 16/18 pags, I'm only taking 8, an will use sticks n rocks for the rest

I try to have as much gear with two or 3 uses
Really helps save room and weight

For guys who like cream and sugar in their coffee, try Nescafe 3-in-1 sticks. Work great in the jetboil.

You could save a couple ounces by taking off that muzzle brake (and save your ears if you or your partner forget plugs!). Assuming it's removable. That NF is also a heavy scope for a sheep gun! Undoubtedly good for a shot at range, but I would take 200 yards less range on my rifle for 1.5 lbs less weight! IMO of course and these discussions are very subjective.

I've posted my list in other threads but I'll get it up in this one tomorrow.

You can loose a tarp. Don't know if you used the guide gloves in the wet or snow yet but they suck. I picked up a pair of I think Sitka cloud burst. They are gortex and were amazing in the snow and wet this year. Also I agree the gun is over kill. On ur first ram you will want to be under 200 yards to confirm legal. Good luck be safe and bear spray is a good add!

What are everyone's thoughts on spotting scopes?

Really looking at the Nikon 50mm Fieldscope as it has excellent optics at a very light weight. Only problem is the max mag of 30x and rather tight eye relief.
