Pack weight

This is pretty much what I'll be carrying this September. This is for a five day hunt.

Depends on where I'm hunting. I usually carry about 16-32oz.
Most of the time my brother and I share a rifle and a spotting scope which with this list would save me about 8 lbs. There are a couple things that are not on my list I noticed, like game bags and the water weight. Still haven't weighed my bullets to see how much they weigh.

I saw that program over on rocslide, but couldn't find it last night. Is it still up?

try this again, here's mine with 5 days food. I could lighten up the tripod but I'm good with the one I have for now. and I like my shelter for 32oz but I know it could be lighter. I just can not do the bivy sack thing. I'm to claustrophobic and I have to be able to get away from bugs

I'm excited to get my weights all figured out when I get the rest of my gear in.  Justin, do you have an ounce scale I can use to verify all my stuff?  What did your tarp come out as with strings and stakes?

I bet he cut the snow collar out, and probably the shelf.  Or Branden did before Justin got it.

I use the scale at my mom's shipping store.

That's 5.5 lbs.
Kifaru lists it at 89oz.
I haven't weighed it yet but it should be 88 oz or less when I'm done with it. Probably around 80oz. actually.

mine comes in at 105.1 (see my list above) granted that was with a belt pocket and the lash kit left in. I consider that part of the pack since it never comes out. but that's not a pound. maybe I messed up weighing it
