I've often wondered how everyone gets their pack ready for hunting after training hard all summer. I plan on doing a lot more training this year in the off season and can only imagine what it will smell like after the summer months in the humid Midwest where I live.

I don’t worry about it. I stink more than my pack does after hiking for days in the same clothes. If you think you need to hit it with some water and hang to dry.

That's what I usually do, I always try to play the wind as well. Just wondered what everyone else done. Thanks

I soak my pack in a tub of water with oxyclean, it might take a few times to get the odors out. I usually soak it about one hour, drain the water out rinse the pack off and then soak again overnight. I've gotten blood, dirt and sweat stains to come out that way.

I think he is referring to the frame/harness/belt. You soak yours?

The bag is easy. Throw it in the washer.
