    Well, this seems like as good a thread as any to quite my lurkin and start chiming in.

    I try to fit in as much hunting as possible every year and have gotten to the point where I am pretty satisfied with my setup.

    In Canada, especially in the prairies where I typically hunt, things can get pretty cold pretty quick during the hunting season, so we have learned that skinning sooner is always better and much easier than later. Most of the time, the work is done in the field within minutes of downing (coyotes also appreciate that). I also exclusively walk and stalk, and I do not carry a backpack. So, supplies need to be minimal and fit into a cargo or vest pocket.

    I carry one knife, with a thick enough blade to pop joints and a round enough point to make skinning easy. This year my knife of choice will be a Bohler M390 version of these Survive knives.


    Mine has a one of these orange G10 handles, because, well because it sucks when your knife is camo and you put it down somewhere while skinning.


    Then, the only other item that I have found I need, and only because of the sternum and hip, is one of these fine tooth, folding, saws.

    We got our hatch chile roasted and peeled last month in August. It was the first load off the truck. It's nice not to worry about it, but here we are in September and I'm twiddling my thumbs feeling like I should be doing something.

    Good luck on your BP hunt!
    egads..Hatch green chili!! i grew up in El Paso, so i know the routine. that roasting chili smell, and the rotating wire drum..= happy.

    i still do a big bag of medium heat annually, peel them and freeze them flat. nothing makes better huevos rancheros. i plan one trip every year just to get chili. i took my wife to the chili festival once, and she was blown away by the passion. (small festival tho). we fish Elephant butte all the time..still.

    i will miss elk hunting this year. too much LIFE getting in the way. i cant seem to draw a NM elk tag anyways. non-res have near impossible odds.

    InspiringK, A big welcome to the forum. It's a great place to be with many good people!

    Boomchakabowwow, nothing brings people together like the burn of New Mexico chile. Just gotta love it. Sorry to hear about the elk tags, although from what I hear the golden state has some big racks up north. I lived in Fallbrook for awhile and enjoyed CA. But like they say, New Mexican's have incredible homing instincts.
