I've seriously thought of

I've seriously thought of getting a can of spray blaze orange paint, and painting my backpacks. I only use them for hunting.

Not sure that is a good idea

Not sure that is a good idea due to the smell spray paint gives off even after it is dry. I would just get a cheap after season vest for a buck or two and either pin it or sew it on to the back pack. No need to give the critters and more of an atvantage then they already have.

I don't wear it to hunt. Just

I don't wear it to hunt. Just haul meat out after the kill.

I usually just wear a waist pack to hunt in. I carry some food, and everything I need to dress out the elk. I then carry back the backstraps and loins to the Jeep. Lock up the gun, and grab the big backpack and go get the meat. At that point i'm not hunting anymore, but I think the blaze orange laws still apply.

That makes more sense. I use

That makes more sense. I use a waist pack too as I find it much more comfortable. As for the pack out and wearing orange, even if it is not required I wear it for safety. Better safe than sorry.
