Remi, big fan! Headed to CO this year for my first Elk hunt. What hunting pack do you recommend for gear, my bow, & hopefully a ton of meat?

I have been using the Stone Glacier packs the past few years and have really enjoyed them. They have a cool load shelf feature where the bag pulls away and you can load meat between the frame and bag. This is awesome for packing out. As for size I like the stone glacier sky 5900. I also have the lid on it as well. The solo pack is great as well if you do more day hunts or short pack in trips. It is a little lighter.

Awesome, I’ll check them out. Thank you sir.

  • Remi- what type of gun cover do you use? what are some of your gear favorites? Jetboil, what kind of bivy, pack, game bags, rifle, bow, knife? Can you also do a segment/comments on field dressing and pack out techniques?
  • Gang - So, here's the deal - I hunt a small piece of family land here in TX -it's just north of 100 acres and I think there are 2 serious deer hunters on it, myself included. We're working on managing it, getting cameras and plots running, all the good stuff. But, the north boundary of the property, right now, is a too wide/deep to cross creek. It's not seasonal - it's kayakable. Anyway, the banks are steep and it's unfriendly for crossing...mostly. We own about 12+ acres on the other side of the creek and it butts up next to government land - and, let me tell you, it's pristine. I've been wondering how to hunt it with the access problem and not wanting to carry a permanent fixture over there. Just a short while ago I heard about and started reading about saddle hunting. It was like a lightbulb moment. Now, it's some expensive gear - about 400, minimum for the entry 'kit.' I'm considering going the DIY option. I'm handy with a needle (sewing) and can probably manage to rig together something safe - but I'm asking; anyone have experience, thoughts, concerns? M
