    Not to hijack the thread, but I'm intriged to see what meat you take from 2 deer plus 2 nights worth of gear and fit it in a 35l pack? Let me in on thr secret so I can do it too

    Stop taking shit you don't use, the reason I went 35l is so I couldn't fit all the shit I would normally take.
    As for meat it depends on where it was shot at how far with what projectile and how far I have to carry it but generally if close(less than a hour and not uphill) I will carry whole as meat is always better if in the chiller whole.
    I haven't carried a whole with that pack as yet.
    Generally I try and break down a animal as little as possible as it ages much better and cuts much nicer if set but in the case of two above it was skinned and boned out back wheels, back steaks and one shoulder cooled as much as possible on the tussock then into a pillow case and into the bottom of pack, jacket strapped on outside(jacket is the bulkiest thing)
    Damnitchy and birch like this.

    Still amazes me. I've been using a 45l pack last few years as my day/summer overnighter and personally its only good for a hind or a stag all broken down.

    Hey veitnamcam. Would be interesting to know what's in your pack. Beside the meat. Totally agree with carrying less pooh. I use to alpine climb and on a 3 and a half day trip up a new route with full alpine gear only used a 40L pack. Nothing but the essentials. Excited to get this pack! My first specifically designed for hunting pack!

    Depending on where when I am going there is.
    binos,range finder,gps,eperb,medical,emergency firelighting,survivalblanket,batterys,head lamp,phone. pretty much always
    water/wind proof warm jacket, full change polar fleece wearing merino base layers(delete full change in good weather for overnight etc)
    Fresh pair of good wool/syn blend socks for every day plus a camp set cos I like warm dry feet.
    one man biv bag or two man tent or fly(usualy one of the first two because I hate mossies)
    Pillow case and a few pack and save bags and zip lock bags, they weigh nothing and have a thousand uses(mainly keeping rank smelly bloody clothing away from clean and or meat)
    Sleeping bag and maybe/maybe not thermarest.
    Cheapo kovea cooker I have had for 25 odd years and a canister in a small titanium pot with frypan lid,some backcountry meals(the mashed spud is bloody fantastic, the rest you will eat if you are hungry) OSM bars maybe some sardines in a tin(heavy but good) half a salami, I tend to work on I should be back at the truck with at least one solid meal left over just in case.

    My sleeping bag,biv/tent and thermarest are bulky and heavy, I would really like to upgrade all of these for bulk and weight, 90% of the time I leave my thermarest behind( the cheapest one, size of my sleeping bag) but I do not camp on the tops in winter and I have had the od cold night on a damp forest floor but you can always shove all your other gear/clothes underneath for insulation.

    Tussock is great insulation underneath, Have woken up with my biv frozen to my sleeping bag and had a nice warm nights sleep.
