Moose and Elk hunting on snow covered terrain with mountain range rising in the distance in Alberta Canada

Hunting Elk and Moose with a Gecko II

We received a call from our new Canadian friend Martin. He wanted to use a Gecko II for hunting during Moose and Elk season in Canada. We promptly shipped his bag to him in Alberta.

After that hunt he followed up by sending us photos of beautiful Alberta with the following feedback:

As far as the bag, I like it very much; it is pliable and light weight. We had it with us during hunting. Not light enough however to take on sheep hunts, but it was not meant for that. I don’t have any actual action photos because in the heat of the moment, taking pictures is not on your mind. I like the versatility of it. There are numerous heights/positions it can be deployed.
Example: In a kneeling position it works great to get more elevation by putting the bag between your elbow and your knee. This is helpful to get above tall vegetation.

I would classify this bag as a medium duty shooting bag most suitable for light to medium weight rifles.
I used the bag at the gun range with a heavy 50 BMG but it’s a strain on the bag. The stitching is pulled tight with guns like that.

Found an anti-slip surface very useful, however at around 20 deg F the cold temperature on windshield has an effect on the stickiness.

So all in all I found it a positive product. A few people played with it and liked it.


Most excellent service for sure.
