Five Tips for Aspiring “Hunting Backpacks”

Five Tips for Aspiring Hunting Backpacks

My first Hunting Backpacks hunt was to escape other hunters. I was fed up hunting animals that respond to humans and wanted to hunt game where I wasn’t being harassed.

My first Hunting Backpacks trip was miserable. It felt like my backpack was full of bricks. I didn’t prepare properly and came home empty-handed. However, I had a blast and it lit a spark in me for adventure that burns to this day.

Many people love the idea of backpack hunting, but they never get to go on a hunt. Although Hunting Backpacks is not for everyone, it is an amazing way to hunt. I believe that it can be enjoyed by all hunters, not just those who are naturally inclined towards pain and suffering.

Many hunters find it difficult to imagine packing for big game hunting. Many hunters are hesitant to make the leap because of the logistics involved in hauling your Hunting Backpacks and camping gear. Although Hunting Backpacks was not my first choice, I have come to love it. It is an accessible style of hunting that is easily accessible to many hunters.

These are my top tips for Hunting Backpacks if you are interested in the idea but don’t know where to start.

1. Hunting Backpacks Fully commit to yourself

There is no such thing a backpack hunter can’t do. Either you’re going to do it or not. People talk about backpack hunting, but they aren’t sure if they will do it. This isn’t meant to be a punch in your gut or a guilt trip. But if you want to go on a backpack hunting adventure, the first step is to decide to do it.

Although this step may seem simple, I cannot stress enough how important it can be to put your mental health first. No matter how far you want to run, don’t let your ego get in the way of you completing the task. While I can think up a lot of reasons to not do something difficult, it is much harder to let your excuses drive your actions. You’ll be ahead of most hunters if you are able to make the commitment and keep it.

2. Hunting Backpacks Get in shape

Notice that I didn’t mention you need six-pack abs and biceps strong enough to crush a Toyota Yaris. CrossFit, lifting 300 pounds, or taking supplements are not necessary. You do need to be fit and train. Although I know that many hunters find the current hunting fitness trend a bit disconcerting, it is not impossible to be a good hunter. It is possible to be fit enough for backpack hunting without having to compete in weight lifting.

You don’t need to have a hectic lifestyle. A regular exercise program that targets strength and endurance is what you should be doing. It is not a good idea to expect the first time you gain weight or climb a mountain to be your opening day. Otherwise, you’ll likely feel miserable. This is a fact that we will continue to discuss in the future.

3. Hunting Backpacks Find the right gear

Modern technology has made gear that your grandfather would have loved, and it can literally make or break your hunt. A pack that is 20-30 lbs. A pack that weighs 60 or 70 lb. The pack will affect how far you can walk and how much you have fun. You will need to spend some money but hunting is more important than drinking six packs of microbrew beer every week. This allows you to purchase quality gear that lasts many years. While most people can spend thousands on their guns, bows, optics, and other gear, they balk at the idea of spending a little more to get a high-quality backpack and good boots. You need to determine what you want and create a budget that will allow you to buy quality, lightweight gear.

4. Be realistic about your expectations

Although eight miles may not seem like a lot, eight miles with 4,000 feet elevation gain/loss can be quite strenuous no matter how fit. Choose a backpacking distance that you can manage and is realistic. It’s not possible to start road biking after completing the Tour de France. You shouldn’t eat too much with a backpack hunting trip. Although it is possible to pack a bonied out muledeer and camp in one trip. If you’re also packing a camp, a decent bull elk will require at least two trips to bone out. You should allow enough time to hunt, pack, and transport an animal.

5. Take some pain and enjoy it

Backpacking is not like camping at a Ramada. You can still be comfortable in the backcountry with the right gear, but don’t expect to eat pancakes or sausage for breakfast. The backcountry is a place to have fun and adventure. Prepare mentally for unexpected events like a snowstorm and don’t be afraid to explore the backcountry. Enjoy the adventure, and don’t let little things like a punctured sleeping pad ruin your trip.
