Best way to pack a heavy rifle

I am contemplating packing my 300 WM this fall while chasing elk and it's rather heavy. Is there a better alternative to the conventional single sling? I've seen dual sling setups in pictures but can't seem to find any info on them.

Thanks.

I have a outlaw sling and it works very good.

Here is another vote for the Outlaw Sling. They are quality built and made in Idaho.

It looked so good that I just ordered one. I'll have another rifle coming shortly that will need a sling, although it should shoot far enough that I shouldn't have to walk far from the truck. Right Kirby?

Has anyone tired one of those slings with a pack? I think I may just order one to try anyways. The price is right.

Thanks.

Re: Best way to pack a heavy rifle

My first thought was down hill but seriously those are nice looking slings, I've been kinda contemplating what to do also and that looks like a good choice.
I think one would have a hard time beating a Eberlestock pack, I got a Badlands and it's not bad but I tryed a co-workers Eberlestock out and with a rifle it is just plane awsome.
