To start off with, I was very skeptical of doing this review. Over the last two seasons, I’ve strictly used Mystery Ranch packs. Unfortunately, I didn’t give other packs the time of day. When I received the Blacks Creek Remedy 7 Alternative in the mail, I quickly loaded it up with 50 lbs. of gear. Once I made the adjustments for

It was a beautiful morning, September, 15th 1952. The temperature was 39 degrees at 6:00 am. My grandpa, Albert D. Bazzanella was getting things ready to head to the south country on a typical deer hunt. The "South Country" where my grandfather was planning to hunt, is about a 2 hour drive from his home town of Rock Springs, Wyoming. He would drive to Baggs Wyoming where he would then head south for about another hour. This country, at that time, was prime deer country! Back then, anyone above 11 years of age, could purchase any of the big game animal tag and hunt them anywhere in the state of Wyoming. This area was my grandpa’s favorite area. I remember as a very young boy going hunting in this same area with my grandpa and my dad, years later, and passing up 26 and 28 inch bucks because it was too early in the day for them to kill anything...grandpa would say, "The day will be ruined!" Anyway, back on track...my grandpa was putting his Winchester model 94, 30-30 lever action rifle into the Jeep and realized that he didn't have any shells for it. By this time, it's around 7:00 am. Mike's Sporting Goods was the only sporting goods store in Rock Springs and it didn't open until 8:00 am. That didn't bother grandpa, because he knew that he would have no problem harvesting a buck deer anytime throughout the day.
