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.

    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.
