I'll be giveing my first go @ elk hunting this year and feel that so far i'm prepared, lol yea right your all saying. I've done probally more scouting then i needed and talked to more people then probally wanted to talk to me. still piecing a few things together, one question i have for you all is what type of frame pack do you use to pack out an elk if you are so lucky. Has anyone ever used the GI Alice pack, their a dime a dozon on ebay. i have an old hikeing frame pack that could work. Is there a prefrence any of you might suggest. Thanks for any help guys.
