Well Known Rokslider

Uh....you might want to slow your roll just a bit! Not sure what you consider "backcountry". First time, going by yourself. coming from low elevation. I am aware this backcountry thing is in vogue, but seriously you might consider hunting from a base camp that sits beside your car. get your feet wet then go do the "backcountry" thing. especially by yourself. find out if you can cover 12 miles in a day, in the mountains. then imagine doing that with 80 lbs 4 times ish with meat and camp. It's crazy how many folks these days jump in the deep end without first learning how to swim.Hey all, I'm new to western hunting, grew up chasing whitetails (watching them from a stand) and shooting ducks in upstate NY. I'm looking to grab an OTC Idaho elk tag and applying for a general Montana Elk tag and applying in Wyoming as well. Most of my hunting buddies are back East so it might be a struggle getting them out here. Just wondering if there's any forums on Rokslide for folks looking to connect with a hunting partner or group?
I'm planning on doing a week long backcountry hunt for this. If I'm able to get an Idaho or Montana tag, I'll definitely hunt solo but would be more comfortable going with someone else if I'll be in grizzly country.
I HIGHLY recommend you start slow and work into it.
Mountains will kill you in a million different ways. DO NOT be fooled by media.
From your elevation you will most likely not even feel like yourself for a couple days or 3 until your body adjusts.
Yes there is a forum on here just for searching out hunting partners.
Good luck. try not to die!
