Hey Jim.. Can that gobbler lounger fit in most turkey vest? In the back pocket portion where you would put the presumed dead gobbler?

It probably would fit in most any turkey vest. It comes with a built in carrying strap (too short IMO) to sling it over your shoulder. It deploys quickly & quietly enough to be a handy tool worth carrying. I added a longer strap and beefed up hardware to mine to make it easier to handle and more user friendly.

There are also companies out there who make carrying bags specifically for the lounger that also work very well. I got one of them and like how it performs. It has plenty of room for the chair and enough extra space to carry a small curtain blind at the same time.

One thing I picked up this year is a tree stand umbrella. Being a friction call user it's next to impossable to keep your call surfaces dry in a light rain or even if it rained the night before, or spring tree sap. This one has the screw in bracket that you screw into the tree, but I'm tying mine to the tree with a small rope ratchet straps, one for the umbrella and one for the bracket. It takes about 3 minutes to put up and keeps you dry and in the shade even if your sitting on the sunny side of the tree. They fold up and fit into the back of your vest so you don't have to worry about carrying anything. They work great for fiction call users and guys that like to film their hunts, it keeps your camera dry. The little rope ratchet straps have 8' of rope on them so it'll hold the umbella tight to a big tree or a 6" tree even in a 20mph wind.

Where did you get it Scott?
I'm going to inaugurate a couple of new turkey destruction units I put together over the last few months. Otherwise all is the same.

Thanks kygobbler I may just have to try one of them this spring. I have found in these golden years it is much easier to sit longer periods. Scott I have several of the umbrellas and they do work well. All mine are the magnums, they are a little bigger than the regular ones. I use the screw in bracket, never had any problems. Most all your sporting goods stores have them

Yes they do, and can also be used to sit behind as a quick blind. Here we can't screw anything into a tree on public land, not even a bow holder, so I use the ratchet ropes.
