I hate shooting whilst carrying bags!
I am bare essentials kind of guy.
but I acknowledge that sometimes it is nice not to have pockets stuffed with things and have the capacity to maybe take some other items outside of the non essentials
I have been looking for a small, slim rucksack that will sit between the shoulder blades and not interfere with the slung rifle
Also been looking for a courier style "one shoulder" rucksack that goes on the left shoulder (numerous right shoulder variants!) thereby allowing shooting off the right shoulder without getting between the butt and me.
After much faffing, home made efforts and hunting around I finally succeeded in finding BOTH!!
Genuine British Army Issue CamelBak Hydration Pack Desert Camo (Excellent cond) | eBay
eBay's finest for the princely sum of £8.50 posted
More straps and clips than a Soho sex shop (I have a cunning plan of a fold away external roe sack that clips onto the outside using these!)
Takes enough stuff for a romp round the woods, listed as 3l but that is the bladder spec, you can shovel in a bit more than that.
Also has the added bonus of a separate liner between rucksack and back that is open at the top
When a small hole is cut at the bottom it takes an inverted, scoped rifle straight down your back.
Comfy as anything
I went out today after a late doe follower/yearling and took the .22lr with me slung down my back.
There have been a load of squirrels taunting me whilst stalking although they didn't oblige today!
