Does anyone use a sling pack? I am trying to get better weight distribution with my mobile hunting setup. Today I strap my backpack to the back of my stand, but that puts a lot of weight on my back. I was wondering if I could wear a sling pack backwards and have it ride on my chest. That way I could shift some weight off my back and have more even weight distribution. I have tried wearing a fanny pack backwards, but it always seems to hit my thighs when I walk. The sling pack would raise the load up away from my thighs. I'm just not sure if it would ride very comfortably if I wore it backwards on my chest.

I'm thinking about buying this:

I find it funny people need something as big as a back pack to carry all their gear to hunt deer in TN...

Why do you need a pack for a pocket knife?

I put my backpack on in front, then put my stand on my back. The stands straps keep the backpack from falling off. It helps on the long walks. Don't try shooting your bow with it that way. Don't ask how i know this.

Some of us actually walk quite a long way to hunt all day.

knife, change of socks, extra layers, rain gear (maybe), lunch, water, rangefinder, binos, folding saw, flashlight, headlamp, gps, grunt call, bleat can, tree steps, stand.

Lol! I can only hope to have as much stamina as you in 20 years. As an engineer I'm always trying to find ways to be more efficient. I figure if I use less energy getting to a stand then I'll sweat less on the way in and sleep less on stand!

When you get old and arthritus sets in it makes you slow down alot.I never sweat anymore.
