    Chuckles, I knew you were joshing. I certainly would encourage anyone these days to go the aluminum pack frame route as a lot has changed since the flimsy Boy Scout versions of my youth. Military surplus ammo packboards will do the job but they are unnecessarily heavy by today's standards. I would only keep using mine because my dad's name is painted on it.

      PHW, I'm a rookie too and so looking forward to my first hunt, but have received much good advice from the gentlemen above if you can search for the answers they gave this Spring when I got my tag. WAM also provided the recommendation that I read the Don Laubach and Mark Henckle books and that was great advice. He also suggested I read the Colorado Web site that provides a great deal of info too. In these three books you will find most of what you need to understand elk, their habits, their signs, their migrations, hunting tactics, etc. Very good books that will get you up to speed quickly.

      Since you are new to the area, I would also suggest you read "Hunting High Country Mule Deer" by Mike Eastman. I've always hunted prairie muleys and hunting the high country is WAY different and could present a unique opportunity for you. You may have a chance at some real trophy bucks and you may enjoy that as much as elk hunting. When I was young I attended a show given by his dad Gordon Eastman and it remains one of the highlights of my life. These guys know wildlife!

      Best of luck to you!

        If you're planning to use the gutless method in WY, be prepared for a lot more than you'll see in the u-tube videos. Here you're required to take the rib meat as well.
