    Midgety daypacks are not much good for carrying venison loads, especially decent sized animals or more than one. Only way round that is to have a rubbish bag to stuff your day bag in, gut the animal and stuff your bag in it and carry the whole thing out. If I'm goin down that road, it's belt kit and no bag at all. Get something big enough to be useful. K2 or similar is good.

    Some peolpe love them, I tried one and a Swazi "stag bag" I think it was called. I found both not to be what I wanted. Nothing wrong with the concepts or construction, just not how I wanted to work them. A decent sized pack that fold down well when it only has a few items in it is my "go to"
    If I am in an area that allows for vheicle or track recovery of animals I opt for a 30L day bag with a good frame. It will carry plenty. But anything like meat will only be carried to the exit point.
    Tried the "just one" concept as well and while it did many of the box ticks it failed on the lightweight aspect (3 KG empty if I recall.)

    With the Minime you need to be pretty parred down on gear and boning out will be a requirement too. If in heavy terrain with 15 kgs of meat onboard, you may well wish for a framed pack. But like I said guys find them good, its always a pretty personel choice, how you travel.

    Good info thanks guys. Have an old huntech day bag with the canvass lining. It’s real old and getting a bit tired. When a deer is shot I use a canvas meat bag with straps to load out. Also use an old macpac cascade from time to time for bigger day trips.
