Well it seems people really dig gear lists! I've decided to copy the 2018 list and update it through the off season to show what I've got set up going into 2020. Weighing stuff will be secondary and only if I get bored. I honestly have done this for long enough I generally know what's... Continue Reading →
Multi-use holster for the backcountry bound!
Every forum and Facebook group has the common question of what is the best way to pack my pistol in the backcountry. The problem with that question is it's almost unanswerable, the backpack, chest harness, holster, gun and gun modifications all change your options and then if you change one small piece it may be...

Adventure Hunting My Backyard
As I type this on my phone I'm currently sitting beside a trail letting my body cool off on the second to last day of the archery elk hunt here in Utah....

2019 Loadout for the gear nuts in us all
Last year I bought a scale and decided to try to weigh and breakdown all the gear I was taking for the 2018 season.

Kifaru Ultralite Frame & Muskeg Bags
Anyone who has followed along with me has seen a kifaru logo on plenty of my gear, especially my packs. I did have a small lapse to test out another pack and was left disappointed. Around the time it came to sell off the failed test the new muskeg bags and frames were released. I... Continue Reading →

Apparently there are people out there who hate traditional archery, not hate it because it's hard but just hate the traditional thing itself. Hopefully none of those people are followers of me or the blog because it seems I may be going trad! Kinda.... I'm not going all in and abandoning anything but trad but... Continue Reading →
Kifaru guide lid vs OGL
If you are into backpack hunting you've probably heard the name Kifaru more than you can count, and if you are like me you may even be a Kifaru "Fanboy." However the biggest problem with Kifaru (which isnt a bad problem to have) is the overwhelming amount of choices!! From a small sub one thousand... Continue Reading →
