Spend any amount of time around a long-distance hiker and you’ll likely hear the phrase, “hike your own hike.” For these extreme individuals who rack up twenty to thirty miles per day for months on end, the idea of “hiking your own hike” serves as a reminder to focus on making their hike uniquely their own, and to not compare themselves to others on the trail. I can’t help but think how the same mantra can apply to how we approach our hunts.
Deciding between the 3500 or 5500 can be a tough choice and we get this question almost daily. As a general rule our recommendation is if your average hunt is 5 days or less go with the 3500.

Attaching the Weapon Carrier to hold your rifle takes only a matter of seconds. The Weapon Carrier will allow you to customize the position and height of your rifle — keeping it accessible when you need it quickly, or out of the way when you don't need to access it.
Attaching the Weapon Carrier to hold your bow or rifle takes only a matter of seconds. To keep things simple and clean, we use the same ladder-lock buckle that the bottom webbing straps are attached to. You simply lace the bow carrier webbing through the same path as the pack webbing, set the height you want the carrier to ride at and you are done. Once you drop the bow in you can secure it over the limb with the locking buckle and your good to go.
