I have been thinking about getting a brass catcher. I know there are several different types available. I currently use a cardboard box on the table to catch them. But when predator hunting the big box method wont cut it.
I have been looking at one like this: catcher
If you use one (any brand)let me know how you like it.

I have one similar. It works OK as long as it is positioned right. I use it mainly on my 300 Blackout, but I've never used it hunting.

I have the same one on mine. Works good, of course I have only used it at the range so can not say how it will work during hunging.

Is there some feature that it has that might prevent it from being used while hunting? Like bulky, heavy, or just in the way?

Mine tends to slip off when it has about 10+ spent cases in it.
They are not bulky but since it is basically a mesh bag I assume in the field it might get snagged on things and pull off. Most likely in the rear most attachment position.

It's not a real robust solution but it does what it is intended to do.
