I use a cranford rope step to hang my pack off. Goes on the tree quick super quiet and hang my pack. on trees too small I double wrap the step. been doing it like this for years and works great for me.

What’s everyone’s experience with the loudness I’d the Mystery Ranch packs? I just got a pop up 18 and it’s pretty loud out of the package. Do they quiet down?

a little. Mines much quieter after so storms, and a few soaks to get blood from packing critters out.

It’s not fleece quiet. It’s not brushed fabric quiet. But I can fish crap out on a still morning now and not worry about alerting deer 100 yards away.

soak in some warm water with dawn soap, take a medium softness bristle brush to it it will speed up the process. If you want it to be water resustant you may need to retreat after it’s been soaked a few times.

Good stuff. Thanks for the insight, Kyler.

Has anyone packed a quartered whitetail out in 1 trip with this pack? I just ordered the MR pop up 28 last night and would like to understand the full extent of the meat hauling capabilities. Asking because I have a badlands 2200 on order also (black friday sale) and am considering just cancelling the badlands order. I plan to use the MR 28 to pack in sticks, platform and anything else I need for the hunt...then when I shoot a deer, get back to my car to fully unload the MR 28, then walk back in to the pack the whole animal out in 1 trip with the MR 28. I prefer to walk back to my car first to give the deer a little extra time.

If you've done this, could you explain how you've done it? I assume both hams on the meat shelf, then shoulders plus straps and neck meat in the pack...and hopefully a head plus antlers on top? I also have a molle frame with giant rucksack (maybe 6000 cubic inch) that I can use to pack the whole deer out if the MR 28 doesn't work.

I did and all the meat fit in game bags on the meat shelf. I didn't have to put any in the bag. Granted I do live in Alabama and our deer are smaller but there was plenty of space. Here is it loaded with two 40lb bags of corn and it still has 6 or so inches of strap on each side for more expansion. Weight will become an issue before space for expansion.
