Im still trying do decide on an internal frame pack for backpacking and hunting, for up to a 7 day trip. What size cubic inches will I need and how much weight can an internal frame handle. My friend is experienced sheep hunter but i am not. And we are applying for a couple hunts for 07. Hes currently out of town for a while for work or Id be asking him these quiestions also. Im looking for a pack that can handle 100lbs for packing out a sheep. Im thinking Ill need about a 5500 cubic inch pack or better. or would 5500 do it.
Im trying stay under $250. Im thinking of the north face crescent or outrider. Or a mountainsmith circut 3.0 model pack. One more q. doesnt somebody out there make a harness to strap your rifle to your pack kind of universal rig? Any feedback would be great.
