Gear bag...

Anyone know of a good pack (back or fanny) to carry my quiver while also having room for the essentials (water bottle, grunt tube, rattling horns, etc.) Not looking to spend a ton of money, but curious what others had if anything.
Also, I don't want something too bulky. I've been looking at a few fanny packs with straps for your shoulders, but haven't found exactly what I want.

Re: Gear bag...

I got the cheapest smallest camo backpack I could find. those harness packs just seem awkward to carry to me and some are bulky. a small camo backpack about like a kids back pack is about as top notch as it gets as far as i am concerned. not a spot for a quiver on it but you could probably rig something up.

Re: Gear bag...

Small back pack with some bungee cords may work? Maybe run the bungee under your arrows then around the pack ? Still be able to grab a arrow if needed. Just a thought?

Re: Gear bag...

I have a small badlands back pack. It was under 100.00 and its compact and light enough for quick hunts plus it has plenty of room for all days sits. It's not designed with a quiver holder but it was simple to find a space for it. It seems to be pretty well made also.

I tried putting up a link but for some reason it wouldn't work. It's called a Badlands Pursuit Daypack if you want to Google it

I am also looking for a new pac, I like one that I can strap to my climber walking in or out.

Re: Gear bag...

the one I was talking about was the Allen Trooper Day Pack. cheap anough you can get one for a spare if ever needed. but for a light pack that is only carrying the essentials it does the job.

Re: Gear bag...

I really like the backpack from Day One Camo, so much that I have two of them!

I prefer unlined fleece for silence. This pack has elastic openings on all of the pockets which I absolutely love! Nothing I hate more than fumbling with zippers when I'm cold and have gloves on!

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

Re: Gear bag...

I bought a red head deer trail day pack from basspro a couple years ago. Its like 20 bucks and works great. I use a fanny pack in the early season though when less gear is needed.

Re: Gear bag...

I never found a good way to trasport and use a pack,plus I really don't carry much stuff with me.About 10 years ago,I started using a Cabelas bowhunters vest.It holds everything I need and access to it is much easier.
