Ever tried to run and gun turkeys while hauling a traditional turkey hunting pack?
Not everybody has the skills and patience to sit and call turkeys all day, and on public land you may not even have the option. If you’re dealing with educated turkeys (and it’s kind of scary how quickly they get educated), you may have to run-and-gun them. If you’ve ever tried doing that while hauling a vest pack complete with butt cushion, then you know just how annoying that can be. If you haven’t, please take my word for the fact that you need to scale down your gear bag. You need a pack system that is light, adaptable to changing conditions, and delivers on the key features needed for a successful hunt. The new Ambush Sling Pack from ALPS OutdoorZ hits all these benchmarks.
Designed to be worn cross-body, the Ambush Sling Pack uses a single over-the-shoulder cross-body strap versus the traditional two shoulder straps found on most hunting packs. The ambidextrous strap allows the hunter to wear the pack in multiple position—right shoulder or left shoulder, front carry or back carry. The diverse carry configurations allow the hunter to keep the pack on at all times without interfering with shotgun mounting or the shotgun’s length-of-pull. The pack can be worn in front of the torso for easy access to calls while on a sit or be slung across the back for those quick hustles through the woods or those long belly crawls.
The Ambush Sling Pack has a sizeable main compartment for holding essential gear, water, and snacks, with a zippered exterior mesh pocket for quick access items. The pack has a dedicated slate call pocket for securing two slates and three strikers, as well as a silent box call pocket. An adjustable accessory/ThermaCELL pocket secures to the side of the pack. Other features include side mounted MOLLE straps for accessory attachment, shoulder strap shell loops, and a removable diaphragm call pocket.
The Ambush Sling Pack is available in Realtree Timber and Mossy Oak Obsession. MSRP $59.99; ALPS OutdoorZ.com
