Re: Elk toting pack frame recommendations
Myself, the old military packboads suck....I've packed alot of elk out on them, and they still suck, especially when they break due to trying to pack a little more to save a trip. Don't know about any of the flea market ones either. I love my Cabela's Alaskan II frame. So far it's been dependable. Been looking to try a Kifaru Longhunter, as I've heard they are the best.
I'll take a mule over the best horse any day, (or any of my friends).The only problem with packing on a mule is it has to be convinced it is their own idea. The phrase "stubborn as a mule" fits. If they don't WANT to pack, they won't.
Gotta agree with kcebcj; that gun will fall out, probably when climbing up the bank coming out of a very fast moving creek....bye-bye nice rifle.
Work to live, don't live to work.
