Daypacks when trad hunting

#1 Post by Ian Turner » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:02 pm

Hi all interested to know what pack youall use when hunting with your trad bows; my main concern i guesss is that the left shoulder strap doesnt catch the string on draw and release.

I use a Camelbak MULE which has a 3 litre water bladder. It doesn't cause any interferance when shooting the bow.

I’m currently using an Alps Outdoorz hybrid X pack with my bow for my day hunts, it’s extremely comfortable and having the added meat hauling ability is most welcome. The shoulder straps are not at all a hindrance when using a bow.
It’s a Fantastic day pack.

I also have the CamelBak Mule and a Badlands React...both are fine and the straps have never interfered with my shots.
The best trophies I can hope to acquire as a husband, father, friend or hunter are MEMORIES!
They will travel with me wherever life's path leads...

When I need to carry a lot of gear, my Exo 5500 comes with me. I can cinch it down nicely into a good day pack size and it isn't too cumbersome, but it can haul a huge load of meat if I get lucky.

For most other scouting and day hunting, my Kifaru Door Gunner is a fantastic choice.
