Timber Hawk is known for building some of the most comfortable, durable and functional camo backpacks in the hunting industry, and the company has recently added a new design to its lineup that holds up to its stellar reputation. Inspired by pro-staff and field-tester feedback, the new Timber Hawk Buck Scrape offers hunters all of the coveted features found in its best-selling Rut Buster, in a smaller pack designed to perfectly fit hunters with shorter torsos. By all accounts, the Los Angeles-based company has hit a home run with this design, offering it in both Realtree™ AP and the groundbreaking new Highlander camo patterns.
The Timber Hawk Buck Scrape features left and right side compression straps while using high-density, breathable foam padding for the back and shoulders, making easy work of long treks with heavy loads. The Buck Scrape has room for everything you’ll need for a day in the woods. The main large compartment is roomy enough for extra layers of clothing, while a front stash pocket allows you tuck away coats, hats or other items for easy retrieval while on-the-go. Like the Rut Buster, the Buck Scrape can easily carry a bow, and is also hydration compatible (bladder sold separately).
Timber Hawk strategically designed every inch of storage to provide functionality to the wearer. The front pocket provides the user with organized space, including zippered mesh pockets for stashing smaller personal items, first-aid kits, flashlights or anything else you might not always need right away but that you can locate quickly.
For quick access to frequently used items that normally get lost in the bottom of the bigger storage compartments, there’s a small pocket giving you access to this gear without having to dig. Now, your pocket knife, hunting license, sunglasses or wallet are instantly available. If you prefer using water bottles instead of a hydration bladder, the Buck Scrape has you covered with left and right side bottle pouches to keep water at your fingertips, or these same pockets can be used for removing/storing gloves without taking the pack off. Additional features include the heavy-duty top “haul strap” and large-loop zipper pulls making access to gear with gloved hands a no-brainer.
As with most Timber Hawk packs, the Buck Scrape includes the Hawkeye detachable bino strap system. There’s no other company offering such a cool and efficient way to “put some glass” on a group of grazing deer in the distance.
