Last year was my first western hunt. Completely DIY and my gear showed it. I probably carried 65lbs into the mountains despite my weight conscious efforts. I got an exo this year, swapped my puffy to the SG Grumman, swapped to the Grakksaw game bags, picked up a much lighter rifle, among a few other things. I also grabbed a SO LBO and a stove. I froze my butt off for too many nights!! Lol I have very much enjoyed the gear part of all of this and I’m looking forward to a time when I just buy a tag and a lot less gear, but as a beginner, it seems like it’s more gear than tags.
