    Troy,
    Nice article, you made me laugh a couple of times while reading it. The Outlaw Sling is probably a good recommendation for backpack hunters like me. Specially for the times when we get to our honey holes where we already have camp set up, and are focused on hunting our sacred spots. Thanks for sharing. Do you know how much the Outlaw Sling weights?. Anyway, would be nice to read some more experiences with it from other members of this site.

    HUAINAMACHERO, I do not know what the sling weighs, but it is very light weight and basically a non-factor even for a back pack wilderness hunter. It actually weighs less than a number of single shoulder slings I own.

    I have been using the Outlaw sling this past season and love it. It functions just like a double shoulder sling that I rigged up 6 or 7 years ago for my own use. I posted a picture here on LRH back at that time.

    You can buy the Outlaw sling here at the LongRangeHuntingGearShop.

    can this sling be worn comfortably with a pack?

    I don't see how you can wear it with a pack.

    I use an Eberlestock Gunslinger backpack, which has a fabulous built-in gun storage compartment.

    Seems like a good idea and at a reasonable price...hey anything that reduces the foul language must work.

    I have i use on my 14lb. 338 edge. It works great. I use 2 pieces of velcro to wrap the 2 slings together once i get to my hunting spot.

    For those of you that would like to see more pictures, here are a few. There are pictures of TBO ProStaff Kevin Lukens, and Jenn carrying their rifles over a pack. Kevin is wearing a Maxpedition Pack.

    I tried one today on my predator gun. I was totally frustrated with it. It can,t be used with a pack. The webbing is so long that I was stepping on it as I was hiking. It was catching on the brush. It would not stay on my shoulder when carried in the convential way over on shoulder. The webbing bunched up in the swivels.It will be collecting dust with the rest of the sub par slings that I have aquired over the years. The best one so far is the Latigo sling from Brownells. I own 3 and will be putting one on my predator gun when the sling arrives.
