Good morning all -
I am planning an Elk hunt next October with my brother and two good friends. The list of questions is huge right now but we are slowly pulling things together.
My first question is has anyone had bad experiences leaving their base camps unattended for extended periods of time? The idea of leaving several thousands of dollars worth of vehicles, trailer, and equipment is something we have not had to do before as we hunt manly day hunts or our private land near home.
Related to this I am not sure how much effort/money to invest in a base camp when the majority of the hunt will be tent based in the wilderness. Other than less limited creature comforts (food, water supply, etc..) is there a big need here?
Any thoughts/comments are appreciated.
