I am off to my first weekend scouting trip of the season. It's a pretty brutal hike, about 22 miles roundtrip. Come hunting season this rules out elk, but I know I could pack out a monster blacktail that far. I'm headed to a wilderness area at around 4500 feet, lots of rocks, meadows and water. I have been scouting this area from my topo maps all winter.
Anyone else headed out over the supposedly nice weekend?
