It's really a more complex question than that. It depends what type of hunting you are doing. When I'm in Montana hiking into wilderness areas to chase mule deer and elk, I use an Eberlestock pack with a built in gun scabbard. It is also excellent for packing around a 3-day camp and bringing out 100lbs of meat in a single trip.
However, on three hour hunts in Indiana where I can see my truck from where I sit it is a bit overkill.
