I like a basic back pack also over a fanny pack. Carries easier and holds more if needed when in more remote areas. A also like a Boonie Packers- Safari Sling for my rifle as it does not need to be hands on while hunting or draging a deer and rifle is allways at the ready.

Pull the deer- http://www.deerhandle.com/

Along with a Dead Sled works wonders to get deer out of the woods.

What I carry depends on the hunt. Allways more water than needed and energy bars along with fire start of your choice , compass and noise maker encase something stupid happens. Then a quality poncho, extra knife, few extra rounds of ammo along with atleast a deer handle.

Back packs work better than a fanny pack for strapping layers of clothing to also

I prefer a backpack. Usually I strip off clothes during the day. The backpack doesn't weigh very much and I don't find my missing coat the next season hanging in a tree.

To those of you that are wondering how one would use a piece of rebar to move a deer: You simply take a knife and make a cut between the deer's achilles tendons and leg bone to slip the rebar into. A 24" piece of 3/8 rebar doesn't weigh much more than your spare ammo. You can easily drag a deer with it. It's small enough that the hook on a nylon strap will slip right over it. Then you can use a 4 wheeler or everyone in the hunting party can help drag the deer to the truck. Around here most hunters have a 4 wheeler. I didn't know the use of 4 wheeler's was a local phenomenon.

The use of 4 wheelers in these parts is off limits unless u hunt from a road. We use pack mules not horses ,mules

Why would anyone carry a heavy steel rod in the woods while hunting? Hell for 10,000 years even the cave men knew to just cut a small branch from a tree for this use. Did you post this as a joke
