I have 5, but mainly use my Stone Glacier. I have a Badlands Super Day pack I use for antelope or whitetail.

Too many. Eberlestock x1, J107M, Tall Mainframe, Little Bigtop, Bigtop. Mystery Ranch NSW military ruck. And a couple of 511 packs I’ve used as assault packs in the military. Now this is over many years so I do t feel too guilty

I have a Kuiu Icon Pro 7200, a Kifaru Muskeg 7000 and a Mystery Ranch Beartooth. The Kuiu is a backup, the Kifaru is what I use and I won the Mystery Ranch, which I am wanting to sell.

Back when I was hunting the areas where you really needed help to get the meat out my hunting buds would usually go in one time and then tell me to forget it. I had one friend who wanted to kill a nice bull elk, when we started out I pointed to a peak in the distance and told him that is where we were going to go. He laughed. A few hours later we were there. Then when I found the elk and showed them to him he laughed again and asked how we were going to get it out of there? I told him that it will be in 6-8 pieces and on our backs, he laughed..

He never shot a elk that trip and he has never gone with me again. His decision not mine since I have invited him quite often

I have one decent one and one cheaper one that I use only as a short hike day pack. I am in the market if anyone has one too many that they want to get rid of cheap!

I'm getting too old to go back into those places.

I like shooting elk within 100 yards of a road, but now they have cut the permits down where you need a few points to draw my spot that I can do that at.

Have 2 horn hunters - full size main beam xl and a lumbar pack. (Really like that lumbar pack)
Use cheap kiddie olive green and camo packs for all-day stand hunting.
Use fanny pack for other hunts.

I have a small day pack that I sometimes use. I also have my old Kelty pack that I took the pack off and use the frame to pack meat. Most of what I carry goes in my hunting vest with lots of pickets.

3 is about what I keep on hand at any point. I have friends who can help me any time I need with more should a big packout be required.

3---- An old Rocky day pack, an old Cabelas Alaskan, and a Blacks Creek lumbar. Anyone looking for a lumbar pack really should check out that Blacks Creek. It is the "Cure"
