capable meat-hauling bags
IF YOU’RE GOING to haul fresh meat out of the field, you are going to want to pack bags to keep the bounty clean, cool, and contained. I used to use pillowcases for this messy task. Then I discovered Caribou Gear. The breathable synthetic game bags come in a variety of sizes, from small “camp-meat” bags to hold trimmings to large bags capable of handling a whole elk or moose quarter. We used a couple of different sizes for our pack test, stuffing the Carnivore ($55 for five bags) and Muley ($55 for five bags) with potatoes, rocks, clothes, and other hard and soft goods. All Caribou bags have drawstrings that are strong enough to hang full bags and reflective tabs so you can find them with a flashlight. Plus, these hard-wearing game bags are washable and reusable.
We loaded Caribou bags with up to 50 pounds of potatoes for our load testing.
