Fellow Elk hunters,
I need some advice/help. I am going on my first do-it-yourself wilderness arhcery elk hunt. I have been elk hunting four times and have killed one, but for this hunt I have some specific questions: 1) For those that use Cat Quivers, which one is the largest, the VII or the IV? Water may be scarce, how much water, if any, do you take with you (I am planning on loading my 4 wheeler and riding to the northern edge of the wilderness area and using it as sort of a base camp)? Would you go with a sleeping bag and bivy sack or light weight tent? What brand of freeze-dried food do you recommend? For a stove, I am thinking about either the Brunton Raptor of the MSR Dragonfly, which is best? How much fuel should I take (I'll be hunting ten days)? I'll be hunting late August, early September. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
