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

    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.

    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.
