    I just purchased the alps commanderz frame and bag but I can’t make sense of it. If you leave it at camp and have an animal down, do you have to head back to camp to get your frame then go back and pack the animal out? Just curious as to what your plan was. I fee that I would want the frame with me all the time. I’m new to all this so I’m trying to learn. Thanks

    My wife and I use the Enlightened Equipment Accomplice quilt. It is their 2 person quilt and we got the 950 fill 10 deg quilt. It was expensive but when we were on our 1st rifle season Elk hunt this year (we live in Colorado) we were camping at over 10,000 ft, it snowed and got down to 15 deg and we were super comfy in that quilt. It is the best money I have spent….except maybe for my Kifaru Reckoning pack. I must also give props to Seek Outside for their Redcliff tipi. It is an amazing tent. Add in the Kifaru cylinder stove and we were more than prepared for the cold weather. Enlightened Equipment, Kifaru and Seek Outside makes top notch products and would recommend them to anyone serious about their gear.

    T.A.G meat bags are great. I use the B.O.M.B bags for boned out meat. You should check them out.

    I liked the day pack attatched to the metal frame idea. I bought a 15 dollar 1970s era aluminum frame to pack out meat. A cheap rain jacket and gloves keeps any blood off my camo gear too. One question: are you still sold on the havalon knife? thinking about one or the outdoor edge.

    This is probably the most concise bag dump I've ever seen…and I've only watched 5mins so far.

    For a tarp, just get a SilNylon tarp from Warbonnet Outdoors. You'll spend waaaaaay more learning to make your own.
    If you want to upgrade for weight and don't mind spending around $300 get a cuben fiber tarp from either Zpacks or Hammock Gear.

    On my last CO DIY elk trip I used the Cuben Fiber tarp with doors from Hammock Gear and it performed FLAWLESSLY. I highly recommend.

    Thanks for the video! As for game bags, look at TAG bomb bags or Caribou gear game bags. I have seen both work well first hand. They are pricy but re-useable. As you can see, we have some of the same gear – I've got an unloading 2015 archery gear video. Nice upgrade for the tent. For Gaiters, I'd look at Kuiu (awesome!!) or the Kenetrek (Great, but not as good as Kuiu). For sleeping pads, be sure to check out big agnes q-core (3"+ thick) r value of 4.5-5.

    Like I said, thanks for the video! Good job!

    I ended up picking up a Sony HDR-CX240 off eBay the other day for $80. Trying it out this weekend. Good recommendation. I already had the Garmin 62S per your recommendation. Great videos. Thanks.

    As for your game bag. Look into the T.A.G. game bags. A buddy of mine built them for his moose hunting needs, and he now is selling them through several outlets. They are good quality and are synthetic durable fabric, which protects your meat and doesn't hold the moisture like the cotton bags.

    For bow repair, would you consider taking a bowmaster press? One would suffice for the whole camp if someone were to roll off a string or cable, or even knock out a peep.
