?? How would you fill that bucket, then wiggle your arms into that harness , stand up with it full and not spill a drop ?

My back hurt just wondering how to harness up in that once it's full. UNLESS....you have a siphon system or hose to fill it after it is cinched on ...ugh.... I suddenly feel like a pack horse grin

You first figure out where the bucket will ride on you. Then take your chain saw and cut a tree leaving the stump to the predetermined height. You then set the harnessed bucket on top the stump. Take another five gallon bucket and bring water to fill that harnessed bucket. Once you have filled you can strap up and walk off.

Think its more for hauling tools or maybe trapping stuff. smile A five gallon pail fits into my trap basket.Keeps stakes and such from poking through.

You can put solid objects in a 5 gallon bucket...like trapping supplies.

Some of you young guys probably won't remember this, but years ago 5-gallon buckets came with a bail. A feller could grab the handle and pick it right up. What'll they think of next?

There's this thing called a lid, that you can put on a bucket to keep things safely contained inside, even liquid things.

I like th idea, although I'll bet it's not very comfortable.

both pictures show round bottom pails or buckets. Wouldnt sit up on hard surface. Plus buckets are tapered more than a five gallon bucket.

I don't have that good of a sense of balance, so I cut two holes in the pail that I can see through and turn it upside down over my head. Keeps the rain and wind off as a bonus

I was going to make a trapping supplies carrier using an Alice pack frame with the little shelf and either a 5 gallon bucket or a small plastic garbage can.

Use the orange pail from Home Depot so you will not get shot during the deer season.

If you use a blue bucket you don't even have to set traps... The animals just climb in while you walk by and stop their own hearts. This is the absolute epitome of the "blue bucket set."

Made something similar for fishing gear for way back there! Worked great. Some dirty dog stole it! Now I use an old golf cart, works better and easier on the back.
