Best Hunting/Day pack for the money?

Recommended Posts

I've been highly considering buying the Eberlestock Singshot pack for bow hunting this year. I will be hunting mostly whitetails this year, but I love to spot and stalk, and might be heading out west for some hunts in the future. The main reason I want this pack is because of the bow carrying feature. I know other packs have this as well, but this seems to be one of the best systems out there for this. The reviews on Cabela's seem to be pretty good. This price is $150 and that is about the most I would like to spend, within reason. Has anyone here had any experience with this pack, or any other packs similar? Just looking for some feed back before I go out and purchase it. Thanks.

Another one I am considering is the Bone collector 1.5 by Blacks Creek, but not sure how well it would hold and release the bow.

I had my mind set on the Badlands Superday (based on badlands reputation and all the reviews I had read) for bowhunting and a trip for elk out west. I stopped at Cabelas and looked at some of the other packs they had there and with help from an associate, I ended up going with Cabelas Bow and Rifle Pack over the Superday and others there. Once I got all the packs fitted properly to my size, the Cabelas pack hugged my frame and hips better than the rest. I guess the moral of the story is if possible, try your pack on before you buy as each may fit a body type better.

I do hear you on the fitment. I tried on the Eberlestock in scheels, but didn't take the time to get it all fitted. Another promising one is the Horn Hunter Mainbeam Pack. Looks to be some quality packs for reasonable prices, just a matter of deciding on features and fitment I guess.

I think each pack you named is a top of the line pack, and you nailed it, fit, features, and weight is what it boils down to. I think you would be happy with any of those packs.

I have the Cabelas Elite Scout pack and am very pleased with it. I really like the "bat wing" flap which allows you to carry clothes and your jacket into your stand without getting sweated up.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
