Most Versatile Crossbow Hunting Pack | ALPS OutdoorZ MATRIX

by HuntStand


Every hunter needs a goal. For HuntStand’s Justin Martinovich, his first goal of the fall of 2022 was to hunt with a crossbow for early season whitetails. The hunt would unfold on his family’s cranberry farm, and Justin worked hard to get geared up. At the top of his list was a versatile pack that could carry his crossbow, and he found just the model. The ALPS OutdoorZ Matrix proved to be an ideal pack for Justin’s needs.

Shared Passion for Deer

Justin began tagging along with his avid-deer-hunter dad back when he was just five years old. The youngster spent many an hour in the stand with his dad, jump-starting his own passion for whitetails. Several years ago his dad went through a stretch when he broke his shoulder, a few times, while farming. The injuries negatively impacted his hunting, but then he discovered crossbows. He’s now reignited his passion for deer hunting.

Trusted Gear

So maybe it was fitting that when Justin returned home for the cranberry harvest this fall, he would be toting a TenPoint Turbo S1 crossbow topped by a Burris Oracle X Crossbow Rangefinding Scope, and arrows tipped with SEVR mechanical broadheads. Justin was also packing the power of a HuntStand Pro upgrade, and of course, his ALPS OutdoorZ Matrix.  The goal would be to bag a Wisconsin white-tailed doe, and fill the freezer with some fine venison. Yes, Justin found his doe. Along the way, he also found a pack that will be a trusted partner on many hunts to come.
