    Kevin,
    Congratulations to you and your hunting party. Out of curiosity, how did you carry in your rifle ?
    Did you use an eberlee or something else. Interested in how to carry a 17# rifle. Also would like to see a pic of the muzzle break.
    JIM

    He would throw it up between his neck and the frame pack...one hand on the barrel the other on the Butt...The frame pack would kinda help hold the gun in place! lol

    We would take the frame packs and put inside our Bigeyes and any other long range items needed (rangefinder,sandbags, camera equip, shells, food, drinks, extra clothing ect..ect) On the outside we would strap our bogen tripods to the packs. Kevin carried all this plus the gun.

    Some spots we need to take in a bench since one was not built already. One of us would carry in the hercules tripod and also the top (not fun).

    we dont walk as much as these guys do for the most part. when we do, i dont go because at 74 i dont need a deer that bad. beside that i dont think any of them would carry me out.
    sandbags are just a name, their not filled with sand, and weigh very little. we use heavy military type slings, or good carry slings. the rear swivel is close to the pistol grip so as not to interfere with the bag.
    we usually have small benches stashed close to our spots. we also have very light benches we carry with a sling. i personally dont like tripods although they work well for some.
    we dont do any filming so that helps also. bogen makes excellant tripods and even the smaller ones like the 3001 with a 3030 head will support pretty large glasses. they also adjust well to uneven terrain. dont buy a cheap kmart type tripod.
    a hotseat or foam pad is very important and weighs nothing. i use mine to pad my glasses inside the pack. we dont use the alice packs, just regular type. my glasses live in that, and it packs well in my jeep.
    we dont use hard gun cases either for that reason. sometimes we carry the gun in the case.
    its a good idea to have a breakdown type cleaning rod in somebodys pack just in case. also some trash bags for covering up in an emergency.
    a plastic bag with a few fire starters, and a pack of hot dogs covers lunch.
    dont forget the ammo.
    we carry a couple of radios so we can keep up with rush limbaugh. they also come in handy for directing somebody to a dead deer.
    a carhart suit strapped to your pack is a good idea, as are some foot and hand warmer packs.
    a plastic tarp of a decent size, along with some nylon cord is almost a must. better yet set it up ahead of the season, and leave it. some guys even cut firewood before the season.
    the only way to hunt remote spots is to be fully prepared for anything.
    years ago some of kevins relatives used mules to pack into those lookouts. they had horse trailers and parked them where they still leave their vehicles. his uncle john and others did that for a number of years. they also hauled them out to colorado each fall. in fact im going to stop here and go pour myself a big glass of johns very good homemade wine.
