    Nice...let's go break it in! I can honestly say I carried all that you've listed plus a full first aid kit, food, and a lite weight rain coat and did not feel as if I had anything on my back until I got to the car and dug out my keys!

    Only problem...I take this pack whenever I go hunting and my brother-in-law or his father utilize the fact that I have it and make me carry their kill...oh well.

    Andrew - have Lynn hook you up with a Customer Appreciation For. Your wife can by hre brother a pack for Christmas. Give her the form, she'll score a deal, won't have to shop, and you'll be a hero.

    Lynn can be reached at lynn@mothertech.net. I am out hunting in E WA at an undisclosed location were clouds of Pheasant and Quail darken the skies like locust.

    Marty...I know Lynn well (purely business of course a few emails and phone calls :clown:)...I've actually have purchased (4) packs, ironically two packs have been for my my wife's brother...I got him the assualt pack a few years ago after I bought my day pack, and then just recently took advantage of the "repeat client" deal after I purchased the turkey light pack.

    So I think my only option is for "peace talks"...that and maybe a few square feet of siding on the house!

    My Pella Bird-n-Lite has been a great pack. I have noticed that a lot of pack are Nylon, cordura, etc. This one is canvas, with a coated nylon game pouch. Mainly I just don't like the extra noise of nylon hunting chukar. My Brittany's learned to drink from pop-top water bottles and the Pella has two side water bottle carriers that fit bottle really well, very secure. It has plenty of room for some snacks, a jackets, doggie first-aid kit and extra water in the back outside pouch. Definitely a good design in my opinion since I mainly hunt the Owyhee's and a single loop may take most of the day.

    I guess I'm really getting old, But all you need is water for your dog(s), a pocket to put your shells in and the bag from Safeway that you bought microbrew. I hope you fill it!

    Yeah - but you still have to carry all of the stuff. Yesterday I covered 14 miles and gained 2,000 feet. It sure is a lot more enjoyable with gear that works.

    Scouting new areas. I limited on Pheasant in under thirty minutes today, right before sunset, but that was after five hours of working to find the honey hole.

    You guys make a good point, after carrying all the stuff you bring along for chukar hunting, plus significant elevation gain and loss, having a comfortable pack means a lot. I'm going to have to look into Mother packs.
