Fanny pack???

Recommended Posts

I want to use my climber on public more this season, and I'm gonna try a fanny pack.

Usually I'll clip my backpack onto my climber, or try to stuff everything into cargo pockets.

I figured with this I can reduce weight and be a little quieter, while still carrying all the essentials. 

I'll duplicate everything in my backpack, so I can grab either one and be ready to go.

I use a fanny pack most of the time. I bought this same one last year and really like it!!

i don't like carrying a backpack unless i'm very deep in, needing to carry more stuff and pack out meat. fanny pack is a go to of mine more often. i only have a one but i use it for everything from a possibilities bag for muzzleloader hunting to a general use smaller day pack. when I'm mostly hunting out of my climber I clip it around the tree behind me if it's small enough and say not oozing pine pitch. I'll run the strap around my detached quiver upside down to hold it securely to the tree to better grab a second arrow if I need it. often I can't be screwing into a tree and especially multiple times into one I might return to often on public land or private.

I’ve always admired those that are minimalist with their hunting gear. One of the things I know about myself is that I am not in that group. This would more closely resemble me on a three hour sit…

I can’t be  backpack guy, I’ve tried them and I keep going back to my Fanny packs. My only problem is I can’t seem to put enough in them to keep crap from rattling around. What I do now is pack a down vest in it don’t think I’ve put it in since I started packing it but it does a hell of a job keeping my crap from rattling and bouncing while walking.

I alternate between a backpack and a fanny pack. Both have the essentials (knife, tape, rope, water bottle, etc...). I use the bigger pack for longer sits so I can pack a thermos with coffee along with snacks. Also use that one on shorter sits if my son is tagging along. I can pack snacks, a book, etc. Shorter sits by myself I typically just use the fanny pack.

I've found myself using a hybrid.. fanny pack with shoulder strap. It's more comfortable walking in, and it has smaller pockets on the belt I can access without taking the pack completely off. 

While I use a backpack, the first thing I do when I climb into my stand is hang it from the tree I’m in. I will climb with it on and then remove it once on stand.

I do the same with my fanny pack.  I also take my quiver off the bow and have a spot for that.

That’s how I go in stateland also. Only time I take my bag is opening day of gun so I can pack all my layers and food in.  But archery I strap it to my hang on for the walk in and usually only climb trees the size of basketballs so I strap it right to the tree at waist height so I can just turn and grab what I need while sitting.
