It's finally that time of year! Each year I look forward to September and the fall I drew a general season elk tag in Wyoming. By the time this gear list runs, I'll be deep in the mountains of Wyoming chasing elk with Trail Kreitzer. This will be a backpack style elk hunt. We have planned to break up our 10-day hunt into two five-day hunts to keep the weight down and to allow us to move areas quickly if we aren't into the elk.

Best of luck this elk season! If you have any questions about my gear list, I'd be happy to answer them when I get back from my hunt.

@Clint S. Great questions! My pack weight is usually right around 50lbs with everything in it, which is always my goal. As for the hike in, it was about five miles. With elk hunting, I like to be very versatile when it comes to my camp. I always want to be close to the elk. If that means moving my camp every day then I will do that. If the elk are staying in the same basin then I will keep my camp in the same spot. Go where the elk are!

What’s the total pack weight with everything? How many miles are you hiking in? Do you repack every day and move or setup base camp and just hunt the area your camp is setup at?
