    What packs are you using??

    Just curious what everyones opinion is or what they use when they backpack in for a pack?? Do you hunt with your frame pack?? Do you take an extra pack to hunt with?? Kinda torn between wanting to be able to hunt lightweight with a small back or having a pack big enough to take a small load with after a kill but I don't want to have to carry my frame pack all day. What do you use??

    I use a badlands super day for day hunts and the Cabelas Alaskan frame and pack for my pack in hunts. Works well and the frame is very comfortable. Sometimes I will take the day pack and strap it to the frame for day hunts or one overnight hunt.

    I'm going with a kifaru bikini/highcamp setup up for pack ins this year and kifaru bt3 for day hunts. Should receive it ins few weeks so I haven't had any field time with either. I did try them on at the sheep show though! I think I'm going to be a happy camper

    This is my current method. I am such a creature of habit, i have not found anything to hunt day to day that compares to my "wilderness pack specialties" daypack that I have had for about 15 years. I also have the same frame pack that i have had for over 25 years.

    I know the frame packs can be noisy. Do you ever strap the daypack on to the frame pack and take them on your day hunts while leaving the base camp stuff on top of a ridge a few miles away? I can understand why somebody wouldn't want to put a buck down at dark, and have to hike all the way back to get a pack. I just have a hard time parting with the money for an "all-in" pack unless I am committed to carrying it all day. completely undecided!!

    For hunts from the truck, I use a Badlands 2200 as my day pack, with my Badlands OX and Cabela's frame pack at the truck for meat hauling. This spring and fall I'll be using the Badlands OX as my backpacking pack.
