Thems purdy boots, ever leave the house?
Put your boys in for pts. All states are different on ages but Az is 10. Get the 10 yr old in this month, he'll have points in two months for elk. Then in the summer for deer and sheep. My boys 18 & 20. Have 9 to 11 pts in AZ and less in other states.
Simple military backpack worked fine for me and doubled as a rifle rest.( Although we always came back to camp every night) Insulated hiking boot. Break them in before you leave home! Lol
Crispi and Lowa for me and I’ve had ‘em on Sheep, Mtn Goat, Moose, high country Muleys, & Grizzly hunts in some tough terrain. As far as packs, I’m a fan of the Stone Glacier packs or Kifaru. If you’re gonna have big, heavy loads, the Barney’s pack is great as well.
Kenetrek boots for me.
To what has already been mentioned, I'll add a bottle of saline nasal spray. My nose/sinuses get extremely dry in the high country and the spray helps immensely. If you are camping, check the fire regulations for your area. Nothing worse than packing for campfire cooking, only to find out fires are prohibited due to dry conditions.
Nice. Looks tall.
Not a bad Muley at all there.
Aku makes a good boot
Most everything I can think of was covered already.
For game bags, I used cheap plain pillow covers. I think I paid $10 for 2 packs of two. They seem to work just as well as more expensive game bags. I do have a set of fancy game bags, but never used them. I was saving them for an elk that I never got. Used the cheap ones for a mule deer and several whitetails.
There are a few GPS apps for the phone. Yes, you can use the GPS on your phone when no service is available. Smart phones have GPS receivers. As long as you down load the maps before hand they work fine. I use Gaia and it is super easy to down load maps. No need for a separate GPS device. Bring along a charger pack. They are cheap, small, and will charge a phone a few times per charge.
If you are going to be above 10,000 ft a good bottle of oxygen. it takes a while to get used to the higher elevations
Take some condoms
