Default Last minute to do list

Well I am in the final stretch before I set out to Colorado to hunt the last week of the elk archery season. I washed my hunting clothes and packed them two weeks ago. Made my grocery list yesterday and have all my calls, face paint, etc packed in zip lock bags. Seems like the same old ritual...my wife said that I pack way to early....so, am I the only one ???

How long before your trip do you start packing and going over your list ??

When I am going on a big hunt I tend to pack way to early and forget what I have packed and start all over. It fun though. Its the unpacking that stinks.

Good luck guys and be safe.

Best of luck elknut! I eagerly await your report (and I am dead serious about that). I sure hope that the area is better to you than it was to us.

I just washed my clothes from CO 2 days ago. I still need to repack for MT and I leave Saturday! Although, I do know I have everything since I just packed and used it. Usually I pack about a week out just in case there are things I need to get.
