This is exactly what I was looking for. Something for strictly & only.. toting out meat.
This is my third year saddle hunting & my lone wolf sticks, stand, pack & this pack, will hopefully perfect the setup.

I'd reconsider. Spend the money on a really good pack.

I use an Exo K3 and absolutely love it.

Take a look at the mystery ranch metcalf also. It's a great pack for less $. Lots of places running sales on them right now. Exo is also running a sale if you were to go that route.

Agreed, hunting out west and hiking 10+ miles a day, a pack and your boots are the most important pieces of gear. I've packed a few animals out on cheaper packs, and I bought a Stone Glacier pack and can say its a world of difference, and your back will thank you down the road. Brands like Exo, Stone Glacier, Kifaru, you can't go wrong. There are less expensive options like Mystery Ranch, but even the MR doesn't hold a cup of water to the 3 mentioned prior from my experience.

why did you back out? I’m looking for one for next year my cheap one kill’s me with just my sticks and platform on it no way I could carry meat lol
I’ve got a backpack I attach to my Assault 2.. I’m just needing strictly a meat pack.
I backed out because the frame is getting close to 300.. don’t need a $50 meat sack to tote out in my arms, lol.
I think I’m back to my original conclusion..

Jackie.. I think this is definitely the most reasonable option. Jason Samkowiak has a YouTube clip on the sleds & I think it’s just got too many pluses to pass up. Once the drag is over it’ll also retain my blood; which I can use to train my puppies.. plus it’ll keep it cleaner & keep me a little more incognito in the village.

Sorry for the late reply. I have the X-Curve and for most normal sized men, that’s gonna be the ticket. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to give them a call at the shop. They’ll answer all your questions and get you set up.

I got the Eberlestock X2 this year and have been very happy with it for packing all my saddle gear. It’s the most efficient pack system that I have used in my 3 years of saddle hunting. I have yet to pack a deer with it though. @Nat1 packed out a pretty nice buck this year with his. Maybe he can chime in.

I also have a LL Bean hunters carry all that is strictly a meat hauler for me. It carries really well with a whole deer. I hope to pack an elk out with it next season.

Used the X2 this year and it did pretty well. I had packed my gear out and returned with it empty. It would have been a stretch get all my gear and the deer. It was a decent size buck and it took every bit of space. Over all I have been extremely happy with it but a whitetail is about the most I’d expect to carry in it.
