Spring Bear Backpacking Trip 2014


This was my first backpacking hunting trip.  We were backpacking in 5 miles to a mountain lake and joining Aron, Billy, and Kelly on this bear hunt.   This was the first time my son and I would be backpacking into the spot we would be hunting.  Having to carry everything I needed on my back was a new experience.  We plotted and planned every detail (or so we thought).  My pack was KIfaru DT3, Lane’s was Kifaru Pointman and Ryan’s was EMR 2.

#25 Q&A with the Avery’s

We figured it was about time to answer all the questions we have received over the past six months and giveaway that Kifaru 14R. We ramble on a bit, go down a few rabbit holes and miss pronounce several products.  Ryan also might be a bit delirious because he has Chicken Pox…… WTF!

How to coordinate your hunts and your family life. A definitive guide ;) to peacefully planning the hunting season with your spouse.


All of us have been there.  Surprise! A 5-day hunting trip sprung on you by your spouse, days before three planned parent teacher conferences and two dentists appointments. All set to happen the same week.  Were you also told ‘I told you about this, remember’?  Yeah, me too.  A big line of bull no doubt.    I would like to say now that I have started hunting this no longer happens or that I understand how things can get planned on the fly, but my Type A personality still calls BULLSHIT!   But hey, I get it.  I too forget to tell my husband about planned events.  Are they a trip out of town? No, but still.  Shit happens.

“The great state of Montana is overrated. Unless you are looking for dinosaur bones.” ~Josh Boyd

Josh Boyd is one of best all around public land hunters that I know. He is also a great writer and gear junkie! Couple that with his job that keeps him in the woods and you get a very knowledgeable outdoorsman.
