    Brady,

    I think that would be the best way or chain your Yeti cooler to a tree.

    Larry,
    Thanks for the information after looking at your picture I've seen them before just wasn't sure what they did.

    We pack a reasonable amount of food for the trip length but also eat small game while we're out there. People tend to forget that rabbit, squirrel, snake, etc makes for good eating and can help with not having to pack as much. GU packs are a great supplement as well.

    I am going on a 8 day Elk hunt this year and I am using a Mystery Ranch 6500 and that is plenty of room. My pack weight is 49.5 pds with all gear and food loaded in pack.

    Newguy220, some good feedback in the thread already for you from others here. Only thing I'd add since your new to backpacking would be to venture out on as many as short weekend trips or longer if possible prior to your hunt. It will be a good way not only to test out your new gear but it will get your body used to backpacking. If you can't venture out much out of town much, put the pack on and weight it up. Start out what's comfortable and work up to a higher weight daily somewhere close to home. It will pay off come hunting season for you.

    Hey everyone,
    Just an update, I ended up going with the Ebelerstock Just One pack because it does so much. So far I'm impressed with it, in about a week going to find out how well it does work.
    Thanks again,

    What pack did you end up getting? I have been using a Badlands 2800 and it does ok but I am looking for something that will get me through for a few more days and be used as a hauler (hopefully). Was interested in seeing what you got.

    If you are looking at Badlands and wwant a hauler type pack look at the 4500 or the OX. My reccomendation would be Kifaru just picked up a DT1 and from reading reviews and talking top people they are amazing. But you pay the price for it
