    Cleaning a pack

    dumb question.. being from Texas your never more than a 4 wheeler ride away from an animal. So having to pack something out isn't needed most of the time. My question is when you guys pack out your animals, how do you clean your packs interior? or is it not an issue with a good game bag? thanks

    Take everything out and open all the pockets, fill up a bathtub with warm water and some unscented laundry detergent, then let the pack soak for a while. After soaking you can scrub any of the stains and then rinse with the shower head and hang the pack upside down to dry.

    You're welcome. It also helps if you can fit a clothes drying stand in the bathtub to hang the pack from and have it dry in the bathtub

    I have a Kuiu Icon 6000 and I just clip it to the fence and hose it out. I have done this twice and it works really well as long as you didn't let the pack sit for days afterwards. If you couldn't get to it right away, SprintNsShoot7's method would be perfect.

    Mystery Ranch suggests using the local car wash. Seeing how it has not been above freezing for entirely to long I will be testing this out at a later date.

    I use the bathtub technique with baking soda as the cleaner. Works really well. I buy a costco size bag of baking soda and use it to clean and store all my hunting gear. From what I can tell, very scent-free. 3 bulls in 3 years of bowhunting.

    I used Scent-Away laundry detergent. I bet the baking soda woulda been way cheaper ha
