Eberlestock gunrunner?

Does anyone have this pack and use it for hunting? Im looking at this pack to use as a light daypack that can still carry rifle. Also is looks like a buttbucket could be attached to carry a bow also. Anyone have experience with this pack?

Yup. I have one and it works great. My only complaint was that the hip belt was not big enough so I sewed a larger belt on it. Basically it was just sewing the belt that was on it onto a larger eberlestock waist belt. And it actually holds quite a bit of stuff--way enough for a day hunt. It's not gonna pack anything out but thats why I have horses..........

I don't know if you bowhunt, but in your opinion could a bow be strapped externally in this pack with the use of eberle's buttbucket attached to the lower molle straps on pack?

Well, I do bowhunt but with a longbow. And yes, you could strap one of those "machines" in a buttbucket---it would work fine. I have a friend who hunts with a compound and he uses that setup. The buttbucket is pretty versatile---I think you can strap it onto about anything.

Cool, thanks for reply. One more question, will it pack a full size spotter and tripod, with spare room? Sorry can't get my hands on one locally, so I'm trying find as much info as possibly via net. Thanks.

I've got one and really like it. I bough it here at the long range store. Don't know if he still does, but Len used to offer a free accessory pocket with purchase. I got two big pockets that strap to the sides of the pack. When marmot hunting I carry lunch, a Camelbak, rain suit and fleece jacket, all my shooting tools, tripod and spotting scope, and my 13.5 lb rifle. Carry's great.

Yup---I carred a full size Zeiss and outdoorsman's medium in it. I also used my last year in the Vortex challenge on Utah and it worked great while "running"..........
