Bozeman, MT. –-( MYSTERY RANCH, an industry-leading backpack company devoted to making mission-specific packs through state-of-the-art load-carrying technologies recently joined forces with Brand Ambassador, Jason Matzinger of Into High Country television to publish the story of Jason’s 2016 spring bear hunt.

Every hunter enjoys a good hunting story and not many are told better than by Bozeman, MT native Jason Matzinger. In this MYSTERY RANCH blog post, Jason details the trials and tribulations of his 2016 spring bear hunt that ultimately ends in success when he catches up with a bear that he has chased for two seasons. After the successful harvest, Jason reflects on the hunt, loads his MYSTERY RANCH Pintler and makes his way back down the mountain.

“Educating backcountry hunters on proper use of the Guide Light Frame and how to pack out dense, heavy meat — a reality for DIY, public land hunters — is our primary goal. Our expertise in Load Carriage and pack engineering to evenly transfer weight results in making the pack-out process suck less,” Marketing Manager, Ryan Holm.

At the conclusion of this hunt, Jason details how he packs out an animal using a MYSTERY RANCH Pintler Backpack. The video illustrates why MYSTERY RANCH dominates the category of “Load Carriage” by creating a pack that allows users to comfortably handle large amounts of weight by properly distributing that load to their back and more importantly, their hips.
