    I think you'll have trouble finding anyone on here that goes further than 100 ft. from their truck, let alone a 3 day trek in the bush?

    So many variables, terrain your covering, physical fitness your in. I know what I carry is a lot less then some of the guys I go in with. Saying that itís a lot more then others or so I tell them.

    Iíve weighed my pack for Algonquin trips before and they come in around 80lb. Typically I have a separate kitchen pack (small bear barrel that I Carry with the canoe). Those two would come to about 90 together. Any Portage under 2km is manageable more than that = hell. Rest required every 500-600m. Iím 47, run, swim and work out regularly and feel like thatís my limit. Myccr is a forum for Canadian canoeists. You could likely post a pack weight thread there and get a lot of useful and experienced advice/responses on this

    wouldn't it completely depend on what you're capable of carrying?? if the plan is to get a moose i'd want a light as possible pack because they're big animals haha

    Back in the day,we used to carry no more than 80lbs. Now,many years later,if we stay out,it's only over night and only if there's an animal down very late in the day that's going to be a tough haul out. It's better to wait for morning when the rest of the crew can bring in the gear,so,we only carry the bare necessities,tarp for shelter,rope,cook kit,food,water,the whole pack is,at most,50lbs.

    It’s one thing to pack into a spike camp but you need to be able to pack a moose out if you kill. Just sayin.....
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Depends how many people are spiking out. You only need so many cook sets, tarp/tents, etc per group. If you’re on your own it will weigh more. I know a week long pack for me stays under 60 lbs, but I learned a long time ago that you don’t need everything and the kitchen sink. It is relatively easy to figure out what you actually need vs what might be nice to have. Especially if you are hunting seriously and the goal is to punch a tag, not just lounge on the hillside.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will squander all his earnings, relationships and free time.
