Blacks Creek ATV/Truck Transporter review

Blacks Creek Mathews ATV / Truck Bow Transporter Posted by: Steve Flores on Apr 7, 2014 Having grown up in the southern mountains of West Virginia, I feel more than qualified to talk about the needs of the mountain bowhunter. One of those needs is bow transportation. With the exploding popularity of UTV’s, and the vast number of bowhunters who utilize ATV’s to access remote hunting areas, the need for safe, reliable, easy transportation of archery gear (specifically the bow) has grown as well. In fact, it is paramount to a successful hunt. After all, if your bow doesn’t survive the trip then what’s the point? Certainly this is true no matter what part of the country you hunt in. Thankfully though, bowhunting manufacturers have recognized this need and have introduced products aimed specifically at those of us who use such means of transportation in...

Bowhunting.com Blacks Creek Antidote Backpack Review

Blacks Creek Antidote Backpack Review Posted by: Steve Flores on Mar 13, 2014 When it comes to the way I bow hunt whitetails I guess you could say the process is sort of an enigma. What I mean is when you compare the way I hunt to the way the rest of the Bowhunting.com staff does the most common denominator is the game we pursue. After that our tactics and methods begin to vary greatly. For example, steep, rugged terrain is the norm for me every time I walk outside and head to a stand. There are no open fields to stroll across, no scenic views, and most often every piece of gear I have is strapped to my back in an effort to remain as cool as possible during my walk to the stand. Sometimes my hunting areas are so far off the beaten...

Austin’s take on the Soultion back pack

For a busy 2013 season of guiding, hunting, and packing I chose to use the Remedy 7 Solution pack by Blacks Creek Guide Gear. The pack was able to fit my guiding needs from day hunts in the desert for Coues’ Deer all the way up to backpack, week-long trips for Alaska Dall Sheep. Here are the 4 highlights of the pack in my view; Fit: The feel of the Grip Frame on my back and waist feels more comfortable than any pack I have previously used. With the adjustable support and strap designs, the Solution always tucked in tight to my back, allowing for stable support under heavy loads. Straps: At first glance you will notice the Solution has more straps than you may have ever seen on a backpack before. After using the pack and placing your gear in the desired pouches, the...

Dave Acosta, Arizona Desert Ram

Thx again for the pack, I’m definitely going to be using your products from here on out .I was amazed on how comfortable the solution felt with the ram’s head and cape in it plus all my additional equipment. I packed my ram out of the wilderness 2.5 miles and the solution made it a very easy hike. I have put the pack thru 5 months of scouting and thru two different hunts now and the pack has held up to everything. Excellent pack and would highly recommend to anybody that is serious about hunting.   Dave Acosta ArizonaDesert Ram  ...

Travis Long review of the Alternative pack

  The 2013 big game hunting season is all but in the bag, with all its ups and downs! One of the highlights of the 2013 hunting season for me wasn’t necessarily the tags placed on big game, which was great, but rather the new pack that I had the pleasure of using this season! I was fortunate enough to pick up the Remedy 7 (R7) Alternative pack to start my year off right! I have used several packs over the years and have liked most of them; however, the one thing I would complain about all of them was the fact that I had to take two packs with me on every hunting trip. One for packing around my gear and one for hauling out meat, if I was on foot, I hated that because that generally meant hiking back down off the mountain...

Nick Schmit review of the Solution pack

  This has been an awesome pre-season so far.  My average days adventure has been anywhere from 15-20 miles in Washington’s most rugged high country which has really tested my body as well as my gear.  On the top of my gear list you will find my pack. The R7 Solution by Blacks Creek has been amazing.  The first thing I would like to address is the weight.  Yes, it is 9lbs.  Take a break from reading this review and go grab your pack board, daypack, gear bag, and your sleeping bag cover.  I can guarantee all of those combined will far exceed 9lbs.  This pack does it all.  The “Grip” frame is amazing with the adjustable suspension to fit ANY torso.  With two fiberglass stays running the length of the frame and two the width, I can honestly say the frame will haul more...
