Hunting packs run the gamut of in expensive to just south of $600.
The past 5 seasons I've been using am Eberlestock X2 (about $250) which has decent load carrying capability at plenty of room for a day pack. The suspension is good, but it's not adjustable for torso length. IF anything it's over organized with multiple pockets and is a little heavy for it's capacity, but it's held up very well and carries more chit than I need. It can haul meat if needed, but it won't be too comfortable doing it.
I'm about to switch over to either a Mystery Ranch Pop-Up 38 or a Metcalf for next season. I'm gearing up for a couple elk hunts and packing oput won't be an option, so I need something more capable. My budget will be about $500.
