Carrying rifle in Vorn Rucksacks


Well-Known Member
I recently got a Vorn rucksack, and love it so far. I do a lot more looking than shooting (counting deer, checking tracks etc) as I'm out several times a week, but don't have enough deer that I can shoot everything I see! So I don't mind the rifle being slightly less accessible.

For those who also use these rucksacks, how do you carry the rifle - loaded, safety on, or empty chamber? I opt for the latter - then when I get to a highseat or ambush spot, I just load up. But what do others do? Any concerns with the safety being released as you whip the rifle out?

No personal experience but would guess this depends entirely on the rifle. A Sauer, Merkel helix, Blaser or sako for example I would say was damn near impossible to engage accidentally, whereas something with a flag type safety may be easier to dislodge
