My 1st archery Elk hunt also. Will be going to South Central Wyoming. I waited until 46 to go. Wish I had done it sooner.
I'm in good shape now. I've lost 20lbs since I retired from corrections 3 years ago. I'm 170 and change now. On my recent scouting trip I was sure glad I had shed some pounds! You can't trim enough off of your tootbrush, maps etc... to make up for losing a few pounds before you go.
Learned that I had way too much in my pack also.
Good luck to you and everyone else headed to the elk woodss this year!
