ok folks,do you wear your vest when fall hunting or just in the spring ? if so what items are in it ?if not what all do you stuff in those pockets?

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
3 strikers
sand paper and chalk
crow call
t.p.
ink pen
4 , 2 3/4 '' #6 Win. supreme XXmag.
a handful of oats & honey bars
2 P.B.J.
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.

Hey Ken,

I've become a "minimalist" hunter both in the Spring and the Fall. I may wear a vest but only for the benefit of the game bag in the back for carrying out a turkey.

My hunting pants have big pockets and I'll carry what I need in them. I usually carry a scratch type call of some type, a couple extra mouth calls, 3 extra shells, toilet paper, little candy bars, license & tag(s) and that's about it.

I like to be as light and quick as possible. That's a real change from the way I hunted in the past but it works better for me these days.

Thanks,
Clark
