I have made my own roll top dry bags and zip up dry bags, and have wondered if anyone has made game bags before? They would be extremely easy to make, but curious if the silnylon or silpoly would be good material for game bags?
My mom has made game bags for my dad and I from light canvas. Not the fanciest of things, but they are great for their durability, and unless you're in a complete deluge, they are plenty breathable enough to take care of game in the field. I also like to transfer meat from bloody game bags in the field to these canvas bags for hanging prior to butchering. They really shine there.
I bought some Caribou Game Bags - Large Single Quarter bags on sale at the end of last season and cut them down to be the same size as the Pristine Ventures BOMB Tag Bags. Kuiu's website says theirs are made out of a Taslan nylon fabric.
I guess I'm a rebel. I had some left over 1.6 oz silpoly left over from my pyramid tent so I basically sewed up a hotdog shaped stuff sack about 2.5' long and 12" in diameter. I triple stitched all the seams and sewed in some webbing loops at the bottom of the bag and used p cord for a draw string. I think Kifaru had something similar to this. I put an entire boned out elk hind quarter in this thing, put a simple half hitch in the draw string, flipped it over and hung it by the webbing loops onto my pack frame. After securing it down with compression straps I hiked out with the easiest carrying elk quarter I've ever had the "pleasure" of hauling. Blood drained out the bottom and I immediately put the meat in a standard game bag back at the truck. I certainly wouldn't store meat in it over night or on an extremely hot day but it sure beat the hell out of hauling out a giant ball of meat in the bottom of my pack!!
