Need to get a good backpack

I need to get myself a good backpack for hunting. Preferably something that is capable of "backpacking" as I do a lot of hiking when I hunt. A metal frame of some sort would be nice as well as a place to hold my rifle.

The Eberlestock backpacks looks really nice like X1A1, X1E, Team Elk, etc...they all have nice places for the rifle (or bow) to be stored.

    Check out the Eberlestock packs, I bet they have one that will work for you, I have a blue widow and it just works.

    Spend the money and get a Kuiu pack with carbon fiber frame. You won't be sorry. I've ran eberlestocks and there is no comparison to Kuiu.

    Kifaru and exo mountain gear are at the top of my list. The new nomad from kifaru Is the perfict type of pack for what you are wanting to do plus it comes with two rifle carrying options. Pricey but they are bomb proof and will carry more weight than you can without breaking. Not to mention un-matched comfort.
