    New question here. How many of you have Fished/Hunted for your food while Bikepacking?

    I have caught fish and cooked them up before...
    ...but wondering if anyone else has done similar.

    I go on bikepacking fishing trips all the time but I also carry food to prepare in case they aren't biting. Is that what you mean?

    Like you read my mind!

    Great response, but how did you transport that picnic table out there?

    This must be private land you are camping right in the middle of the road.

    Wow, the rack on that elk is huge.
    Gotta be an extremely full freezer or two from that hunt.
    This gives me some ideas, but for smaller game.
    Thanks

    I should have bought a bigger chest freezer, i will probably get one for my shop.

    I started off with small game in alaska in the early 90's and have worked my way up from there. .22 in a backpack can get a lot of grouse. I have gone on alot of bike rides and brought grouse home for dinner.

    Nice thread and very timely. I've carried a fishing rod with me on a few trips, but never caught a single fish. When I leave the rod at home I always seem to find a perfect little fishing spot where the fish are biting. This weekend was no different. Quite a few brook trout in the stream in Northern NM right off the trail. All hungry and me without any fishing gear. Oh well gives me a reason to get back up there.

    BTW anyone else using a Tenkara fishing rod? Found them to be very simple and compact.

    Is that something you caught or is that the bait? And just what are you trying to catch with that?

    ^^ It was stocked just hours earlier and then caught. Streams make good cooler substitutes.
