it seems like most people don't want to walk 100 yards beyond their trucks. I see some guys parking their vehicles immediately below their stands even.
Most, perhaps. But, not all.
I have been known to paddle a canoe many miles a day, hike up beyond tree line, and also miles away from the take out, with the longest resulting in four days to pack out one moose with two guys. This is Alaska. And for me, this is another outing in the backyard; I have a really big backyard!
Yes, I have grown to like lighter hunting rifles as the years continue rolling along.
