Re: Long Range Hunting Gun Weight
Like the look of the shoulder sling posted, that Len sells, but I'm in the same boat as some other guys that hunt with a pack all the time. From the pic, don't see you taking anything but a rifle? How many folks hunt that lean? I can't seem to get out of camp with anything less than about 10-15 pounds minus rifle,,,,but again I always have a pack with extra clothing, spotter sometimes, always have meat care items, water, bare minimums in my mind.
But, carrying a rifle has always been a painwith a pack, typically on a pack in I strap it to back or side, sure makes a trek into spike easier. So far, best thing I've done is something similar to the gun bearer, might actually look into the commercial one before this fall, to see how it balances. Add to that, it looks a little nicer with treking poles. Nothing is worse than a heavy pack and a sling over the strap of a backpack, with the rifle wanting to fall off,
