Choosing the correct backpack is both difficult and important for the
serious hunter. Whether you are a day or backpack hunter, your pack must balance capacity and load carrying ability with pack weight, as well as quality and durability with cost.
Before purchasing a pack, one needs to decide the exact requirements of
the pack. Does it just have to carry a lunch, emergency gear, and a day's hunting equipment, or will it be used for overnight trips? If it will be used on overnights, how many in a row? What kind of gear do you plan on carrying for the conditions you expect? Will it just carry food and gear, or will it also pack cape, horns, and meat? These questions will help you determine the capacity and weight bearing requirements for your next hunting pack.
It is our recommendation to iron out the rest of your gear systems before you choose a backpack, as pack choice should be dependent on the expected load, not vice versa. Don't hesitate to contact us regarding your next pack, we would be happy to work with you.
