New Bowhunting Packs for 2014

New Bowhunting Packs for 2014

Back when I started hunting the mountains of Oregon, backcountry bowhunters carried a motley array of packs from heavy army surplus packs to flimsy nylon rucksacks, and many hunters jerry-rigged their own packs because they couldn't find anything suitable in the stores. Packs have evolved until now it's rare to see a backcountry hunter without a specialized mountain pack.

Here are some of the latest and best that will keep you hunting, no matter how tough the conditions.
