  1. If your a ebay member, $50? A year. You can get a rino 750 for $530. I think that's the cheapest I have seen ever
  2. No settings im aware of, if still got warranties maybe send it back.
  3. You now have this pack for a few months, how is it? Can you put the meat between frame and pack, Cheers
  4. In vic, we can purchase ambo cover. About $50 for single or $100 for family a year. Cheap insurance if shit does go down hill out bush or anywhere
  5. As stated check the battery on your PLB before your next outing. Expired, time for a new one
  6. The Moroka30 45L was comfy. Then moved to exo k3, As gibbo-Dave said kuiu. Find a backpack that can change bag sizes Cry once instead of multiple times
  7. Keep an eye on the wonnangatta hunt, normally held in may. You could be the 2nd bloke from overseas to attend. Search "wonnangatta 2017", "wonnangatta 2019" etc to check out the threads
  8. In vic we have "more to explore" have to head to the hunting section, That shows where you can hunt. I've got the 650, thought that was a great unit and had it for 8? Years. Upgraded to the 750, way better unit but has faults, ie freezers, 1 day battery life, I believe you can have a subscription service called "birds eye" which is Google earth?. Haven't tried it so can't tell you if clarity is good. 750 can bluetooth to phone, great if hunting in phone reception because that picks up a weather channel and shows rain coming on gps, a bit poxy but alright. I find rino and topo maps is a brilliant combo As having uhf/GPS in one unit argument, when it fails you lose both, bloody hell carry another one, like you would if you had a single uhf and single gps. As Duncs said avenza maps on phone is good
  9. Have you used this pack again, Any photos how the meat sat?
  10. Being 8ft tall, everything is bigger, straps on outside is to tie heads/meat etc
  11. Anyone used a "Tatonka Bison" 90L pack? The load system looks good however I like straps, this seems it doesn't have much, i reckon that would be a issue that you can't tie from the pack
  12. I recently went with moroka30 45L pack. Ouch at the time for pricing but then I weigh up the kg's in meat. Then go to supermarket and look at the pricing. 2 or 3 deer taken home and its paid off in the price I would have spent at the super market and I still got a back pac. A good back pac is a wise investment that hurts at the start with the dollaroos but a sound investment for years to come Love to hear the outcome and feedback as i can see what a good pack can do now and only imagine what a even better pack will do
  13. Yeah Nah, leg hairs/arm hairs are important, they trap heat from your body escaping and a great silencing device walking through scrub, they also dont trap water against skin, I also hate the weight and lack of movement wet clothes brings. How I hunt I find wearing less the better and it doesn't seem to effect the outcome of deer in the freezer
  14. I'm ready to hunt in footy shorts as soon as Dan opens up hunting.
  15. A quick Google search found "farmers attire" Here's 1 for your reference what farmer attire looks like Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  16. Not a specific hunting boot, but I wander around the bush wearing these. Bloody comfy straight out of the box. Light, water proof. I get about a year out of them. Everyday use. Seems that heavy building mud on jobs sites the zip doesnt like it. Magnum also make other styles with different "grip". I could wear these 7 days straight deer hunting, knowing my feet wont suffer Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  17. Been looking into these, as a tall person they make a 2.1m bag, perfect for me, make smaller sizes aswell. Footwell seems bigger than others. Couple different temp ratings Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  18. Been researching online today, bloody hard to find a bag if your over 2m tall. Exped make a bag for us tall people upto 2.1m, exped comfort -10, down bag and weighs in just under 1.6kg. Comes at just under $600 roonies. Looking into it Rated at -5c, -10c, and -17c something like that
  19. Been into mac pac today, 40% of their sleeping bags.
  20. Still reckon you will be looking at 300-400 hard earned for a bag on "sale". You will have it for years and break the cost down and might be the cheap part of the hunt I was at the shops last week looking. Who makes a xxl down bag?
  21. Might be onto something. Carries a baby, surely can carry a leg out
  22. I havent bought 1 yet, but thinking heading into baby huntings store and checking out one of those back packs that carry a child on the back. Worth a look I reckon. No doubt got pockets for drinks, snacks and can carry a baby if i found 1 in the bush.
