Re: good pack for elk

Eberlestock packs... great packs for packing out. I have also head a lot of good things about Mystery Ranch packs and Kifaru... they are more $$$ though.

I use the modular Nimrod pinnacle day pack w/ meat duffle inside. You can also run a alum. folding frame. I have one set up for bow and one rifle, has a rifle or bow carry system. They make packs for firefighters and SAR, many styles

Re: good pack for elk

You have not said what you are going to use the pack for. There is a lot of difference between a pack for hunting elk and a pack for carrying out elk.

As one person mentioned I seldom have a heavy load bearing pack on while hunting. I dress the elk and then go to the truck and drop off the rifle and grab the load bearing pack.

How many trips and how much you carry depends upon your physical condition and whether you like to carry a few heavy loads or more loads but lighter. Just personal preference but a 9000 feet elevation the lack of oxygen is really tough.

With my hunting pack set up , I always take something with me depending on location, time of day etc. If I am with a hunting buddy we can handle a elk. I have conservatively, packed out a 100 or more

Re: good pack for elk

I'm very happy with my Kifaru G2 Longhunter Standard. At 5200 cubic inch, it works well as a hauler,(especially with the cargo chair option) as a late season 3+ day pack or even a day pack. With the options available for this pack, it extremely versatile. The best part, it is a comfortable pack with or without weight. If you need something bigger, the Longhunter Guide is even roomier.
