"Eberlestock butt bucket"

So i just ordered an x2 and got a butt bucket for my bow. It says bow/gun carrier. I have not found any info on how well it hold a rifle. has anyone used the butt bucket to carry your rifle? how well did it carry it? I have a late mule deer rifle tag this year in new mexico and will be packin a rifle around and was wondering if this would do a good job of packin it. I got the butt bucket because i hunt bow 90 percet of the time. should i splurge and purchase the scabbard for this hunt or can i get by witht the butt bucket?

I would say the butt bucket would carry the rifle fine, I have and use both, I've never carried a rifle with the butt bucket though.

You won't be able to take the rifle out of the butt bucket without taking the pack off. You can draw the rifle out of the scabbard while the pack is on your back. So if that is a concern you may want to get the scabbard.

Well said. I prefer the scabbard too so when you set your pack down your rifle is protected. Good luck on your hunt.

well i ended up not liking the butt buckt for holding my rifle, and i didnt have the extra cash to purchase the scabbard but i used the scabbard from my saddle and attached it snug to the webbing on the inside wing it worked great! i think the actual scabbard would be better but until i can afford one the saddle scabbard will have to do.
