A local innovator has created a new product to help hunters haul their harvests out of the woods. 

Every hunter knows that the hunt is the fun part, but once you get the animal down -- that's when the real work starts. 

15 years ago, Chris Peterson was hauling out a particularly heavy animal when he decided there had to be a better way. 

The result was the Pack Out Bag. 

Peterson claims the bag, which is made completely in the Idaho, can help hunters carry heavy loads because it evenly distributes the weight.
