Go Hunt: Trail Kreitzer’s 2019 “Year of the elk” archery hunting gear list
Trail Kreitzer’s 2019 “Year of the elk” archery hunting gear list
Every year, the season creeps up on me and just like that it’s time to go elk hunting again. I’m not complaining; it’s just the older I get, the faster time seems to fly. Like every summer for the past 20 years, I’ve spent almost every morning shooting my bow and logging miles so that I can make the most of the days I get to spend in the elk woods each fall. I’m also thinking about my gear selection all the time. Specifically, I’m considering what has worked well, what new gear would be good to add to my system and what I can live without. I have outlined my gear list below and I’ll call out a few new pieces that I have added. Currently, I have a couple of elk tags. I’ll be hunting early season in an over-the-counter (OTC) area in Idaho and, then, the best of the rut dates on a general season elk tag in Wyoming. In all, I’ll be doing about 20 days of archery elk hunting in two states. Those will be backpack hunts—most often broken out into five-day hunts.
