Pack for gun or bow

Any advise for a backpack that I can use for gun or bow. For packing out meat and a huge (hopefully) elk rack.

    I have a Badlands Hybrid and a Eberlestock X1. Both great for hauling rifle or bow and will pack out a large whitetail. The eberlestock has a notch up on the badlands for carrying the rifle but the badlands is way better for the bow and quiver. Getting into an elk sized pack, both outfits make rigs of the appropriate size and you can't beat the quality of either of them.

    How big of a pack are you looking for? I just bought an Eberlestock X1 for a day pack and loaded it to 50lbs yesterday and it was comfortable. If you are looking for a larger pack I would suggest a Just One by Eberlestock or the comparable Badlands model unless you want to spend an arm and a leg on a Mystery Pack.

    I have just about narrowed them down to Eberlystock or Badlands. I will check out Nimrod too.
    Thanks

    In the fall I bought the eberlestock J34 pack after many reccommendations from the folks on LRH. I did use the pack in hunting season to haul my gear and rifle, but was not successful enough to haul any quarters out with it. Just from the few miles I put the pack thru I was very happy with my purchase, and would reccommend this pack to others.
