New elk hunter in training. With about 45 days until rifle season opens it’s time to start logging in some miles with gear.

Ahh yes the sling looked funny at first but looking at it in the website it looks like… a sling. Probably the orange.

I was concerned you had maybe never seen a backpack as that was the only other shoulder strap contraption.

That have me a good chuckle :)
At first glance the actual orange shoulder pad border/outer part looked like a tubular aluminum frame that was anodized orange or something. I couldn’t think of why somebody would have made it like that.
Also like that strap for what it’s worth. I have a cheap POS on my rifle and it gets real painful after a long few days

We got out this weekend both days. Saw lots of elk on Sat nothing Sun. I ended up carrying Bridger’s rifle a lot as conditions were really slick with the melting snow. I don’t care for the sling much. It’s too wide to work well when carrying a pack. Won’t stay on your shoulder well. Without a pack it’s great. Another reason I had it more than him.
