Re: Do you use a rear bag when out hunting?

I have not used a "rear bag" per say when out hunting. But I do always try for some form of rear support, wether it be a pack, coat or combination of a few things to get stable. Most of my hunting is remote horse back and hiking, and I just dont want to pack another pound around all day. If I were hunting closer to a truck or quad, without question I would have one of the fancy Red Tac rear bags.

Yes, Holland's, the little one. Sometimes I also carry a big poofy one that I got from Specialized Dynamics, but I use that as a pillow to take naps. Got to be comfy in the heat of the day.

Home made. Very light!


Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Re: Do you use a rear bag when out hunting?

I used a Triad rear bag on my Antelope hunt in Wyoming a few weeks ago and it worked great. This was my first experience hunting like this but it seems to work great. I carried it in the cargo pocket of my pants and it never bothered me. Of course spending time in the Army I learned to carry many thing in the pocket and got used to it. It comes prefilled with a material that's not too heavy and works very well. I have used it both on it's side and flat. The bag squeezes easily for elevation adjustments. The picture is where I shot the doe at 300yds set up exactly as you see. I used exactly the same set up for the Buck I shot at 400yds.

I've been using a homemade bag. I took an old wool hunting sock and filled it with beans. It actually works great but a little heavy, maybe too many beans. I look forward to trying the Redman.

Re: Do you use a rear bag when out hunting?

I made one for this years hunt in the shape of a door stop with a para cord strap for easy attachment to my pack with a carribeaner. (sp) I got some cordora (sp) nylon material and figured it should last a long time.
I filled it with some old media I had and was very happy with it. It worked well on antelope and my first mule deer. ;-))) Man them guys are big ;-) glad it was all down hill back to the truck.
