Game bags for elk hunting in September
I'm looking for a recommendation from someone with experience on what kind of game bag is best for a September elk hunt in Colorado. Do I go with the cheesecloth style (they're cheap and I don't think they're the ticket, but I've never done this before), heavy duty canvas, or these:

I'm looking for something to cool the meat down and protect it from bugs, that's durable enough to hang from a tree and hold up on a pack frame getting carried out.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Depending on where you camp, and what I'm able to tell from the area...

Cheesecloth ain't gonna cut it, buddy. I'd go fairly sturdy. jmo

I've been checking and these seem to be best.$main-Large$

You can find them at Cabela's

The package of 4 Quarter Bags is what you want.

When will you be going to Colorado? What unit?

Those are the best......I sent him a picture of them on my camera phone.
Great minds think alike:D

God help us all...

OH MAN!!! Did I type that out loud????

I found those on Cabela's around noon today. Good reviews.

Sorry, I've been busy. Scott filled me in on what bags he used for his Alaskan moose hunt he told us about. Those bags are the ones we're going to use. I talked to the manufacturer and got their opinion on what exactly we should get (the game bags and also the pack bags).

Monie, we'll be going out in mid-September.
