Why do hunters need trekking poles? - posted 4 years ago

As a disabled vet, and backcountry solo hunter I finally gave in and tried trekking poles this year on a black powder backcountry cow elk hunt. After years of hurting myself and packing in and out with various loads, I finally saw the light during the first pack out of boned out cow. What a difference in stability I was provided by those poles. Combining those poles with an external frame pack, loads now ride so much better, and I don't feel nearly as broken as years previous. They will now become a essential part of my gear.

Very good article, could have used this advice years ago. Had my very first bull done by local because they were the only show in town, and since have had to have repairs done three times. Now I will drive the extra distances to use a reputable taxidermist, with positive vetted results.

The pros and cons of elk hunting alone - posted 5 years ago

Great article, the last couple of years I have executed all my hunts solo. It has changed my approach completely as well. So much to consider when you have no one to work things out with. And when successful it makes the pack out absolutely brutal!!!
