Bag strapped onto a packframe... so its not the bag I'm carrying. It was the weight... I made all the dekes water keel and now, no sweat. I'd go all water keel if I could... but the Carrylite keels have some weird seal on them and I don't want to ruin the decoy so I'll leave those six as they are. I'm glad you don't have to carry my bag... I might spend more time pulling you out of the sand than we'd spend hunting. 40lbs.... :shock: :lol:TagmBagm said:I think the main reason for your back hurting is maybe your decoy bag. I know that when I carry my decoy bag with 40+ pounds in it then my back is sore by the time I am done, .
