I don't know what "break the bank" is for you, but Cabela's has The Mystery Ranch NICE frame/Crewcab combo for around $200. It for surpasses any external or internal pack for carrying heavy, awkward loads....

Re: Elk toting pack frame recommendations

Thanks fellas. Plan A is to shoot the big critter and have him run down hill and die at the tailgate of the truck. Plan B is to trick my partners into hauling it off the mountain. Problem is my hunting partners are smarter than I am, so I will most likly end up cutting him up and toting him out myself. :mad:

I will wait till he is pointed towards the truck before I pull the trigger, just in case I get lucky with Plan A.

light bulbBeen looking on Ebay for a little red waggon too.

Thanks for the input.

+1 for plan A
How about plan C ( Wound him,get him on his feet and walk him back to the truck )?

Good luck

Re: Elk toting pack frame recommendations

I had a Mystery Ranch NICE/Crewcab I bought from Mystery Ranch in Bozeman, where they make them. Don't know how Cabela's can get these and sell them for $200, because they cost Dana that much or more to make them. Just dont think its an real Bozeman Mystery Ranch made pack if it costs $200. Most likely an overseas knock-off artifact.

I'll put another plug in for the Kelty Cache Hauler (external frame). This pack frame is $99 at Sportsman's Whorehouse and for hauling big loads with minimal investment little else comes close.

As others said look in pawn shops and perhaps thrift stores and all nature of second hand store.

If you want an Kifaru, I have an Kirafu EMR that is for sale, but it's most likely out of your intended budget.

If you can find one buy one of those K2/Dana TerraFrame or Flatbed packs. These are a Dana Design external frame pack that's no longer made. I have all manner of packs, from MR, Kifaru, North Face, Osprey, Camptrails, and others. These old external Danas are the stuff for hauling out heavy loads. If you can locate a good one, buy it.
