in spring , as long as it ain't too hot , i'm wearing a vest ;
lower wing from previously killed gobbler
one box call
2 new ,in the pckage mouth calls
one slate call
sand paper and chalk
4 , 2 3/4 '' #6 Win. supreme XXmag.
a handful of oats & honey bars
12 OZ. water
in fall, again depends on the temp. I bought an oversize camo shirt and folded the tail up on the inside and stitched it in strategic spots to create pockets . it'll carry alot without the added weight of the vest .
In the spring season we only hunt till noon. I generally do alright even if i'm carrying a pretty good load of clothing and vest. In the fall i try to dress as light as possible in order to last longer in the woods.
But , on those days when its not too cold nor too hot I always enjoy the vest when it's time to take a snooze in the woods.
most favored hunt? bare essentials. 45-65 degrees . just enough grub and water . 4 shells and 1 mouth call,,,,,,,,,and the 12 bore twins.
