Re: Toting your rifle afield..

I second the motion for drag bags - use the Eagle or Galati, depending on the rifle length.

Mode needs to be relatively stationary, though (like I normally deer hunt). If I'm predator hunting - moving alot - I use Vero Vellini...

Re: Toting your rifle afield..

I am very much into spot and stalk, and i came up with a simple system that works OK for carrying, but great for crawling. It's just a std. 3/4 or 1" webbing with a snap in one end with the webbing fished thru it like a backpack shoulder strap, that allows me to adjust the length of the sling quickly so the gun fits tight to my body. This keeps the gun from slipping around clumsily on my back or belly as i crawl. When i get to my shooting spot, i don't have to contort to get it off for the shot, just reach up and unsnap the sling.

I have a Nimrod pack system with the rifle scabbard. It is very well designed.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fit any of my more recent, large rifle setups.

Here's what I wrote about carrying a rifle in the field:


Everybody has their own requirements and styles but I found what I believe will be a great long-term solution. It's secure but allows you to quickly get into firing position.

I also use the Eberlestock Gunslinger pack. It is great. Keeps your hands free, able to carry all of your gear, pull the rifle out in a snap when you want it.
