goHUNT Highlights

  • If you already have a Guide Light MT Frame, the Mule Bag lets you utilize your pack for multiple types of hunts

  • A small bag that's perfect for day hunting from truck camp

  • Great for the versatile hunters who want to utilize the overload shelf or bigger pack to haul camp into the backcountry and then switch to the Mule bag for their day hunts

  • Multiple side compression straps along with side pockets make carrying a bow, rifle, tripod, or trekking poles easy and secure

Manufacturer Highlights

  • Fits on the Guide Light MT Frame and the new 2020 Pop Up Frame

  • Top-zip access to the main compartment

  • Hydration reservoir compatible

  • Warranty - Lifetime

The 2020 Mule Bag Only fits on the Guide Light MT Frame and the new 2020 Pop Up Frame. It will not fit on the Guide Light Frame (The frame that comes with 2019 and earlier Metcalfs, Marshalls, and Pintlers). When this bag only is attached to a frame it creates a workhorse that is perfect for hauling the maximum amount of weight in the overload shelf. You can use this set up for day hunts or as a dedicated meat packing setup. It is also a great option for shed hunters. While the Mule was designed with the western mountain hunter in mind it is also very effective in the whitetail woods for packing in a tree stand.

Total Weight 1 lb 4.8 oz
Capacity 1,404 cubic inches
Material 330D LP Cordura & 330D Cordura (Subalpine)
Hydration Compatible Yes - built-in sleeve and port

Exact fit

I purchased this as a day hike alternative to my metcalf bag. It is exactly what I wanted. The perfect size for spring/summer essentials for a long day in the mountains. I got it dirty last weekend, now I just need to get some blood on it!


Mystery Ranch Mule Bag Only

Perfect way to transform my metcalf to a light daypack

I’m using it for shed hunting and small day hunts and hikes. The metcalf is too big for small day hikes but the mule is perfect! Very happy with it

Perfect Day Pack

Awesome day pack for the mountains or treestand for whitetail hunters. I had purchased a Metcalf which worked great, but for day trips was not necessary. Being from the Mid-west, I'd highly recommend this bag for both Western hunts as well as deer hunting. One thing worth noting about the bag is you may need to purchase a Back to The Future Conversion Buckle Kit depending on the frame you're attaching. Give yourself 20-30 minutes to switch out buckles and you're good to go when you want to switch between the Mule or previous bag that came on your frame.

Not for my uses!

I intended on using this bag with my frame from the Mystery Ranch beartooth I have for a tree stand pack for Whitetails. The Mule may be an ok pack for western day hunts but in the tree I could see it being a nightmare. Flimsy, Loud, and just not what I expected from MR. With that said the process through GoHunt was great and as usual the Customer Support was excellent. GoHunt alone earned the 3 stars… The Mule itself, not so much.
