  1. Default New Hunting Pack

    Hey Guys,

    First of all, Iím new to the site and have really liked what Iíve read so far from other people. So Iím here to get some help - Iím looking for a new hunting pack that can load out but can be used as a day pack and even an overnite pack. Looking to keep it under $500. Hope I can get some great suggestions. Iíve been looking at Mystery Ranch mostly cause Iíve heard great things, but am open to any brand! Thanks guys!

    We really do need an FAQ/Wiki for this forum.

    Agreed, honestly the search sucks... its way easier to just run a search through google, and specify the site.

    After a couple of different misfires I think I'm going to get a Mystery Ranch Mule this year.

    My son-in-law used Mule and I use Pintler for day hunts, we both agreed we like the extra room provided by the pintler. Both worked fine, but as weather was swinging from hot to snow, the extra room in the pack was handy.

    Also get the rifle that doubles as a wading staff.

    While a FAQ, or getting people to search on their own would clean up the forum a little, they can't replace real-time help like this.^^^^^

    It's a plastic stock so what. Jana is a tough gal and could probably put a lot of you to shame

    I have the Cabinet, which would actually be between the 2 mentioned, used it for the first time this year and loved it. The main bag is about the size of the Mule but it has 2 BIG side pods that can stow a bunch and if you would use a load cell between the bag and frame you could easily pack in a week's worth of stuff. Very comfy and stable. I got a screamin deal on mine and am very happy with it.

    There are plenty of recommendations for MR on here, some for Stone Glacier. What direct help do you need?

    I’ve been looking at MR, SG, and exo - but so far I’ve really liked the wide variety of options from MR - but just can’t decide which ones would be best

    I love my SG Sky talus but its a little out of your price range.

    Buy used. Good packs hold their value so you could try multiple brands and styles to determine what is best for you without being out much money.

    All are excellent. MR is built like a tank and can often be found on sale. New to western hunting but not new to backpacking and I find MR guidelight packs super comfortable under load. In my opinion the only reason to stray from MR is if you are an Ďounce countingí ultralight guy, as the others are a little lighter. But I donít think that should matter for day packs. Plus, when I get to Ďcoin-tossí decisions, lately I have been picking HT sponsors (MR, Leupold, etc.).
