I do think the shaved head is more arrow dynamic and also saves a few ounces off my trail weight..

We are going to have a good time Paul , you might have a few years on me but I’m pretty sure you are in much better shape than me...

Most of the time I’m in solo but will have friends come and hunt several days or sometimes a week with me.

I also do all my meals in gallon bags , everything but my main meal is in the bag. I do a lot of fishing so several of my dinners are fresh fish so that saves some pack weight also. Got in my new kettle in , and my air bed is on the way...

Yes it is a tenkara , been useing it for several trips and will never go on a hunt without it. I love to fish so it works out good for me to always get some fishing in on a hunt , also several of my meals are fish on a hunt...

Honestly not sure on brand , wife bought it for me several years ago for my anniversary gift. It’s a 10ft rod and had everything as a kit , it was like $85 shipped. Has been a great rod and every year I have had it everyone that has hunted with me has spent many an hour fishing with it..

The kettle is a GSI Outdoors , one liter , it was $25 shipped..

I have a fire most days so will save stove gas useing it in the fire to boil water , it is super light..

Also going to get one of those fancy bino harnesses , going with a Alaska Guide Creations . Looks handy.....

I've been using a Core4 down vest I bought from Camofire a few years back. Its always in my pack and light weight. I also picked up a grey LL Bean synthetic puffy sweater for $15 at their outlet store that works good. Most of my gear is from patient bargain shopping.

Sam what does your pack weigh for your 7-10 day trips ?

Same here on getting good deals on gear , I am for sure not a leg humper on top brand gear just because of a name. As long as it performs good that’s what I want in a piece of gear.

My pack for a 7-10 day is 50-55lbs , not including water. I’m hunting where I know I will have good water source and also good fishing so I count on catching fish for several of my meals ( saves on a little pack weight )...

We interrupt this elk hunt to bring you.....lunch!

I agree with all of what Sam states above.  Love Tenkara....  it fits well in my quiver and is lightweight and simple...great benefits!  I thank Nate Steen for turning me on to it.
