Which blind bag?

Postby Ukcatshunter » Fri Feb 07, 2014 6:12 am

I'm mainly a walk in hunter. I'll use the bag for:

Call lanyard
Beanie
Gloves
Neck gaiter
Knife
Leatherman
Headlamp
Small palm flashlight
Shells (2 boxes)
Chokes
First aid
Store cell phone, wallet etc.

No need for mojo storage, batteries etc.

Would like a valuable pocket that's waterproof for the phone.

Any ideas?

Messenger style bag aka "duck purse". Long strap allows it to hang over your shoulder across your body leaving your hands free.

I would look at the Avery Power Hunter shoulder bag or the Drake Shell Boss WMA bag. Avery is $30 and the Drake is $35 at MPW.

I prefer a box for much of my hunting, as well, though mine are plastic. Absolutely waterproof and makes a good seat when that's needed. Also use a $14 German army surplus day pack that will little doubt outlive me when a box isn't as handy. Water proof on its bottom and top flap and surprisingly water resistant between.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I picked up the avery power hunter shoulder bag today. Fits the bill perfectly. Will keep me from taking every "tool" I have to the blind.

I use two: a small one for September teal season that's about 10" tall (just enough to sit on when hunting levees) and a bigger foot tall one that wouldn't be nearly as handy for walk-ins but is fine for the boat and holds all the "possibles" I'm apt to want during the regular season.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I've been pleased with a Cabela's waterproof (dry bag type) back pack. Hunting wetlands means you're bag can sit with you.

just about any blind bag with a shoulder strap should hold that. does sound like a lot of stuff for a walk in.

I carry all that you carry plus an extra jacket and sweater because im pretty sweaty after walking 2 miles to my spot. I use a 7 gallon bucket meant for carrying chlorine tablets for pools with a screw locking top to keep everything dry inside, I think if you go talk to someone at public pools you can get them for free

Instead of a bag, I like a roomy vest. The wrap around game pouch can hold flashlights, hats, gloves, cel phone, sunglasses, etc.

If you can find one Mcalister Field Accessory bag, will be the last blind bag you ever buy. Built tought, waxed canvas, big enough to hold everything.

I have the Avery Floating Blind Bag, I got it from Rogers. My buddy has the Avery Floating Pit Bag.. he also got it from Rogers.
They are identical, except the Pit Bag is a little bigger. They are both very good quality and will last. I highly recommend one of these two. :thumbsup:

Ok so I am an avid walk in hunter as well.

I usually take:

at least 2 dozen decoys
parka (in my pack)
2-3 boxes of shells
calls/lanyard
a couple Gatorades
Lunch w/thermos
extra gloves/beanie
headlamp
first aid kit
extra decoy string/weights
wallet/phone
GPS
knife
Shotgun (on pack if wanted)
etc.

A few years ago I bought a Sportsman's Outdoor Products Elite Blind Pack. This thing rocks. I will never try to carry a bag over one shoulder ever again. It is a well built backpack that is comfortable with plenty of weight. It comes with a decoy bag that attaches right to the pack and can hold 3 dozen decoys, it is so much nicer to have nice backpack shoulder straps than to have those nylon decoy bag straps digging in to you for a couple miles.
This pack has 2 front pockets specifically designed to hold up to 4 boxes of shotgun shells, a large main pocket that will hold all of you large gear like your extra clothing and coat, inside of the top of the main pocket there is a few smaller pockets with zippers and some mesh pouches with bungee nylon to hold all of your small items like phone, GPS, wallet or hand warmers and such. There is one more pocket on the lid flap where I stash all of my calls, knife, headlamp and sunglasses.
This pack also has the ability to haul your shotgun. When it is a couple hours before shooting light and you have a long walk through mud and water it is amazing how much better you can keep your balance when you don't have to worry about your shotgun slipping off your shoulder down into the mud.
I would strongly suggest looking into these packs. I will never go back to anything else. Sportsman's Outdoor Products is MADE IN THE USA and they stand behind their products. If you EVER have a problem they will help you out forever!
