Do guys have any tricks to prevent your rifle from slide off your shoulder while wearing a back pack?

Lift weights & get buff.  Or buy shoulder pads.  I think you can get them in camo.   :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Use a safari sling.  Packed out many a deer, have shot a few with a pack on.

If you wear suspenders (for your rain pants), you can get one of those sliding ammo holders and put it on the strap on your shoulder.  It will be under the rain jacket, but makes a bit of a stop so the sling doesn't slide off.

I sprung the $20 for a decent sling and position it over the pack shoulder straps.  If you really want it secure, loosen the sling and wear it cross draw Robin Hood style.

Exactly!  Just wish I knew about them 20 years ago. Wouldnt  have wasted all that time trying all the other uncomfortable ones!

I would venture to guess that the "Big Ol" button sewn on the shoulder of my plaid mackinaw isn't what people would use today.  :dunno:

Both of which date myself.
