    Recommend Hunting Backpack

    Hi,

    I used my regular camping backpack this season which worked but without a frame it was hard to carry out 100lb *typo before! of mule deer. Any recommendations on a solid backpack? How much weight in terms of meat should a pack be able to carry?

    200lbs of mule deer? Got any pics of the deer? Or of it loaded in your internal frame pack?

    As to good backpacks, the sky is the limit on pack quality and price, but anynof the upper echelon packs will carry more than you can for any real distance. Stone Glacier, Kifaru, Exo, McHale, Seek Outside, (even Mystery Ranch, although I personally no longer characterize them as “top shelf”) are all top shelf packs. All are internal frame, and all will carry as much as you can.
    Barney’s in Alaska make a freighter frame and bag system that will do the same as an external frame pack.

    All packs named will carry as much as you ask of them, and all will also
    carry a price tag real close to $1000 cdn at a minimum.

    I use the Eblerlestock F65 Littlebigtop with the F1 mainframe..works well for me, lol although I don't pack out 200 lbs all at once but I've packed out over 100 lbs of deboned meat etc and it does the job...

    Mystery Ranch serves me well. 110 lbs packouts and it is rock solid. Pretty sure I'd hit my limit before the pack would.

    fun video for comparison:

    What's wrong with Mystery Ranch that you don't call them top shelf anymore?
