Went on a elk and mule deer hunt in Colorado with this bag. Took it up to 10,000 feet and probably hiked 20-35 miles in 5 days. If anyone knows anything about back packing thru elk country, they know that’s a lot. Anyway, I harvested a mule deer buck and a cow elk. The mule deer with this bag was an absolute cake walk. Was able to pack out all our meat and antlers. As for the elk, now that was a serious challenge. The bag? Oh the bag did great. I’m happy to say I put this bag thru hell and back. Didn’t rip, never wished for something more, and I sure as heck couldn’t handle more. The one negative I’ll say about this bag is that the weight you can carry with this bag is something you need to be really smart about. I’d say I loaded the bag with 100-150 pounds of elk. The bag handled it easy. I didn’t handle it well at all. Throwing 100 pounds on your back and walking up and down hills is not for the weak. All in all, I’d buy this bag again if I had to.
It handles elk quarters (bone-in) fairly well. I got a front quarter, a rear quarter, and a backstrap from a full-sized cow elk on this pack, and once I got it on my back, it carried fine. In retrospect, it was a little ambitious to try to carry two quarters with this pack as I don't think that's what it was made for, but it would have handled one quarter just fine. The total weight for the quarters I had on the pack at the time was 62 pounds, and I think it was a bit excessive for this pack. I also packed out two mule deer with it while I had it, and it handled them well, so I think I had just overdone it slightly with two elk quarters.
Also, if you are planning on doing a 3-5 day backpacking/camping type of hunt with this pack, you will probably find yourself short on space as it isn't overly spacious, but I think it's really intended to be more of a day-type of pack, and it serves this purpose well. I was overall very satisfied with the pack and had no major issues with it; you just need to know what it is and isn't capable of for your particular needs.
