It is a beautiful unit. I have enjoyed getting more familiar with it this summer.

I considered buying a new pack, but I think my wife is reaching her limit on the amount of money spent for new stuff for this hunt.

my advice is use the pack and buy a cheap frame for the second loads. the badlands is good for a quarter and maybe backstraps. anymore than that will really challenge its capabilities. i've put a handful of elk and deer in one and have not enjoyed using it since upgrading to a kuiu. they're not even in the same league. even then i typically bring the frame pack for the second load.

Especially if you are hauling the rack and cape out. A pack frame is a must.

This. One year I went a day early from the opener of the rifle deer to do some scouting. As I was packing my truck the night before I remembered I left my kuiu pack at my parents but had my 2200 down stairs. Grabbed it to use for the day and sent my dad a text asking him to bring my other pack when he came out that afternoon. After a morning of packing a scope, water and other various stuff in my 2200 I made a phone call to my dad, brother and wife making sure they all were aware my pack needed to make it out there because I wasn’t about to spend 4 or 5 days using the other pack to hunt with.

Good advice, APD and that is exactly what I have decided to do. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that I actually need to use the pack frame to haul out a big bull.
