I’d like to tell you how these bags came about.   Thirteen years ago, two of the guys in our hunting party got their elk, a 5 point and a 6 point.  It took the three of us three full days to pack out those two elk.  I had bought a portable winch the year before and we thought it was going to be the ticket, but this three day adventure made us reconsider.

As we sat around the fire trying to recuperate from the very rough pack out, I said, “When I was growing up I was always amazed at how many papers the neighbor used to be able to deliver with those bags they had.”  That started us talking about making something similar for packing out meat.  After that hunt, my wife made three Pack Out Bags for us to try the next year.  We were so impressed with the added weight we were able to carry in one trip that we have used our original three bags every year since.  Last year we decided if we liked the bags so much, maybe others would too, so here we are.  We make our Pack Out Bags with quality material and we build them to last.  Give them a try and let us know what you think.
