Re: good pack for elk

I much prefer the external pack frames for hauling out meat over the internal frames. We hunt with a small day pack with the essentials and then go back in with the pack frames to haul the meat out. Two guys can get out an average elk in one trip if you de-bone it.

Re: good pack for elk

I really like the eberlestock X2 I use it for my day pack and it has an internal frame, super nice to carry all day and when you get an elk down it is more than capable of packing out a quarter, then when I get to my truck I grab my external frame pack for the rest of the trips

I use a mystery ranch crew cab and really like it. It will haul more than I care to put in it and with the NICE frame you can buy different bags for it as well. Packs are like everything else in my opinion you can never have too many.

I agree with bigngreen. I like an external frame for packing out elk. Use a blackcreek and badlands for everything else. I really like the Cabelas Alaskan guide. Have hauled out many elk with it. Its a great pack.

I have both a Mystery Ranch CC and a Eberlestock X2. Tried most of them and these are the two I ended up with.

Huh...didn't realize Montana elk were that small.
