It seems with the advent of the internet and the pervasive gear and Hunting Forums, hunting enthusiasts flock to, the idea of “What’s in your backpack?” has taken on a life of its own.
The topic of gear never dies. We all seem to be gear-heads. We are normally seeking a lighter, cheaper or an expensive upgrade-solution that we perceive we need.
Many of us on budgets don't spend the necessary money for a pack that can haul heavy weights, so many hunters suffer with a pack that is ill-equipped to carry heavy loads.
I know I did for years, as my mentor, my brother-in-law used old-style military pack boards for meat-hauls. We'd all suffer for hours at a time on long meat-hauls. I'm not sure his motives, other than budget, or no pack suited him, but it was if to make me tougher, or to never want to use such ill-equipped packs for meat hauling, ever again!

In the recent Western Hunting Journal review, all of the backpacks in the review are capable hunting packs-Yes!
It is difficult though to compare Apples to Oranges; all fruit yes, but different fruit. The WholeShabang! that was tested, is a significantly DIFFERENT pack than those next to it. First, the WS! weighs 9# 9 ounces. The Orion weighs, 6# 6 ounces.
..800, 900,1,000 yards, Open Sights...shooters at Creedmoor were the real deal.
Some bullet placements, especially during competitions were better than most of us 21st Century shooters can muster with a high powered scope, custom barrels and meticulous reloads.
..800, 900,1,000 yards, with open sights. Long range shooters at Creedmoor were the real deal.
