Eberlestock Gunrunner - a Question

I will be taking along my Remington Sendero when I hunt Idaho in a October and Im looking for a good way to lug it up the hill each morning. I typically just hunt with a day pack and come back with a pack frame the next day if successful.

The Eberlestock Gunrunner looks like it may fill the bill. I have never seen one so I'm not sure of the exact size.

Can anyone tell me if it can fit a Sendero with bipod?

Are there any other day pack w/scabbard combos I should consider? I'm hoping to keep the costs low as Im saving for the trip. I can keep my eyes open for something in the classified section.

Thanks all. Mike

Re: Eberlestock Gunrunner - a Question

Well, it fits my Savage 11 LRH 338 Lapua (but the damn rifle sticks up too far to negotiate Michigan pine trees very wel)l so I usually have my 11 lightweight 308 hunter in the scabbard, the barrel is more manageable.

I like mine just fine. I put in a hydration system (feeds out through the shoulder straps). Carry my shooting glasses and some granola bars and camera and I'm set for a day hike. You can cinch it down to a small area without cramping the scabbard at all. Has all sorts of pockets inside and it's quality made, maybe not Kuiu quality but good enough for the price.

Won a complete Kuiu gear package a while back including an Icon pack which Jason thoughtfully allowed me to trade for a Kuiu mummy bag (and some cash). Don't need an Icon for what I do, the Eberlstock is just fine.....

That just leaves you with camo choice....

better aff, my 338 always has a Harris 2 axis bipod on the front..... forgot that,

I have one that I've never used, I find it cumbersome. I just pull on the rain cover and call it good.

Kind of reminds me of a Kuiu Guide Beanie with too many straps.....lol

No just the pack. I have have also used the rifle scabbard to carry my spotting scope when I'm not using a rifle by folding the bottom of the scabbard into the pack.

Re: Eberlestock Gunrunner - a Question

I finally remembered where I bought mine (a couple years ago). I bought mine right on this site from Len. At ther time, the butt cover came with the pack plus I got the rain cover and a ditty bag that attaches to the waist belt.

Anyone need a butt cover, let me know. I'd part with it for a couple bucks plus shipping. It's in realtree camo btw, never used.
