Heading West: A case for the 4-in-1 Woodsman

The gear you trust to bring on a western hunt needs to be tough, versatile, and lightweight. Not only are you relying on your equipment to take home an animal, you are often trusting it with your life. Changing weather patterns, extended stays, and miles from civilization all mean your equipment must work with you. Spending days or weeks in the backcountry will push any hunter to their limits. The 4-in-1 Woodsman was designed for these situations.

Multiple Uses

Your gear needs to be as versatile as you are. In the backcountry, being able to adapt and solve problems is key to success. From cutting and splitting wood for warmth and cooking to setting up camp, the equipment you pack must serve multiple purposes. Traveling long distances into the mountains or backcountry demands minimizing the amount of weight you are carrying. Consolidating a saw, hammer, axe, and puller into a single, lightweight tool allows you to save weight while not compromising on essential tools.



Western hunting is fundamentally different than typical archery and rifle hunting that most eastern hunters are familiar with. Most elk hunters travel deep into the mountains for up to weeks at a time. Every piece of equipment you bring needs to be tougher than the terrain and conditions you’ll be facing. In the mountains, there isn’t a store to pick up extra supplies or fix broken equipment. You need to be self-reliant.

The construction and durability of the 4-in-1 Woodsman is second to none. The axe blade is hardened and will keep a consistent edge throughout your trip. With the ability to store multiple saw blades in the handle, you’ll never have to worry about breaking a blade.


Every Ounce Counts

Every elk hunter understands the struggle of packing essential gear while keeping daypacks and gear as light as possible. At 10,000 feet, every ounce matters. The 4-in-1 Woodsman combines four essential tools in single, compact unit. From cutting firewood to setting up and maintaining camp. You need to bring these tools regardless. Rather than packing them individually, bringing the 4-in-1 Woodsman allows you to save weight and space in your pack.
