Hey guys and gals,

I'm going elk hunting in Colorado this September. I just talked to one of the guys I am going with and he wants to setup a satellite camp for the two of us in an area that is too far away to make in and out in one day. Can you please help me put together a checklist of the items needed. I pretty much know what I all I need but I might overlook something. Also, I do know that a tent can be the difference between good and hell. Do you recommend a tent that isn't too expensive?

Thanks,
CM

Go over Sneaky's list on the Group Elk Hunt thread, or just pm him, he's not doing anything.

I'm sure there are more experienced tent experts on here than me. Eureka (if they're still around) seems to be a decent quality backpacking tent, before you get into the uber, mountain climbing, who cares it's Daddy's money type expensive stuff. I would think, if the weather doesn't take a dump on you in September that a decent sleeping bag and a good fly-type shelter would be enough. Of course, that's if you're a young-ish man. Me, I gotta have all kinds of crap at my age.

MREs/Clif bars, H20, zippo, tent, sleeping mat, crank up flashlight or 2, satellite phone (pizza hut might deliver..ya never know). Doesn't take much if you know you can get back to base camp if need be.

BTW, I'm looking for 2 tents. One that will fit my dad and I comfortably at base camp and a light one for hiking with. More concerned about the tent bc I've had a bad tent before and it was miserable.

Easier to get 2 small 1 person tents. stays warmer and way easier to set up and anchor.

Don't underestimate the value of baby wipes. I'm also a big fan of flip flops when I'm living out of a tent. Makes the midnight pee a little easier.

If you don't know, then you don't need it.
