    Hunting vs hiking boots

    I put hundreds of miles on my Vasques and two elk trips before they wore out. They fit me great and were excellent for hunting. You won't have a problem with them at all.

    I shoot Axis w/ HITs and had pretty good luck. Do you shoot the broadhead adapter rings from Easton?

    DIY Alaska Flyfishing Trip in August

    Do it! You will have a blast! I've DIYed most of those rivers. For rainbows/dollies/grayling you'll want a 5/6 and I'd recommend a bunch of egg beads. I think it will be early for flesh flies. Silvers should be in some of the rivers mid-August. I used an 8wt. Bright/flashy purple/pink flies...

    Public Land Ethics

    I don't feel bad about reporting, especially if it crosses the unethical poaching line. I've found some great duck spots from slobs leaving piles of empty shells....

    Whats the deal with gaiters?

    Yikes!!! I wear mine to keep ticks out turkey hunting (sprayed with permethrin before season) & to keep sticks and crap out when elk hunting. Never had to deal with a cobra getting up there but that sounds just awful.

    Best paper maps

    MyTopo rocks. You can shift the center of the map to your area so you're not stuck with the USGS quads. Can get them printed on water-resistant paper and I believe there is an option to add hunt zone boundary.

    What’s a luxury item?

    A nice NeoAir pad. Or Thermarest makes a reversible stuff sack that is fuzzy on the inside and makes a great pillow with your spare layer inside

    Plans changed & would like to hunt elk this year

    Never done it but the UT archery spike tag in the LE units sounds like a ton of fun. It's OTC.

    Grizzly encounters while elk hunting

    Never ran into one elk hunting but was doing a DIY flyfishing trip in AK a few years ago and had a medium size brown bear wake us up in the tent. I picked up the 870 and chambered a slug quietly. We slept with the tent fly open and I saw him walk by at about 10 yards. Thankfully he didn't want...

    Flying with your pack

    I've carried on the Exo3500 a few times. I put my optics and other items that I really don't want to lose. Strap everything down and never had an issue carrying on. I suppose some planes you might have to gate check. I'd recommend if you check your pack to put it inside a duffle - you'll...
