Hey all y'all! I'm new and will have to see how this all goes but want to get anyone that is interested in a hiking/backpacking/hunting trip this fall after the small game/archery deer season opens up in Minnesota. I am a volunteer for the Itasca Moraine Chapter section of the North Country scenic trail and will be using this experience this year to help prepare me for longer term minimalist backpack travel and survival. Would like to invite anyone that has the same interests and that can find their way to the Park Rapids area. I will be utilizing the North country trail east of Itasca state park into the Paul Bunyan state forest.
