Rear zipper pocket has spring loaded pliers with wire cutters, dog vet supplies, couple of heavy zip ties, lighter, fire starting cubes, Karo, maybe a Cliff bar. On the belt in cartridge carrier 4, 00 Buck.
Game bag 2 water bottles, empty hulls and just once in a while some birds.

Close to home a Filson Tin cloth strap vest with 10 shells, Vet supplies and water for the dog. Pheasants are easier on my ego, and I have walked out of the grouse woods with 1 shell and no where near a limit.
Is that like maybe an empty game pocket for 9 shots fired?..... I've done that

I hope you don't lose your vest... you'll have to walk home.

Well maybe. I lost count last year in a 10 year Aspen cut. Buzz was 13 months and we got into a flight of Woodcock wearing Teflon body armor. The bottom was just loaded and it had to sound like it was Annie Oakley and Protectors at the trap range. The pup was so good I didn’t care how bad I performed. Let’s just say I was lighter coming out. Could be why there is a hideout key for the FJ and the cabin has a combo lock.

# 7 1/2 in the right vest pocket, #5 or 6 in the left, maybe a bottle of water in back. The last few years my Wife has come with me and she has carried the downed birds in her back pack so they wouldn't impede my swing!!

I had one of those Charlie - it was a top grain thick steer hide purse with a flap that folded over the top. It was one of those hippie purses from the 70’s with psychedelic designs on it with a heavy shoulder strap that I bought for Kathy early in our marriage, and when she tired of it I took it back for a shooting bag. Haven’t been able to find it lately... found out last winter my daughter stole it for my granddaughter... oh well, what the heck...

The same Ruger .380 with an extra clip that I pocket carry every day. in my right front pants pocket. If im working dogs, quail hunting, i carry a birdshead Ruger Vaquero stainless .45 with two rounds of ratshot for snakes, and four hollowpoints for javalinas, coyotes skunks etc. i carry the .45 in a Doc Holiday style “huckleberry” rig.

For a shooting bag, belt, vest, myriad different configurations depending an what and where.

Hmmm. I need to look at my wife's Dooney Burke collection. Might be some hunting gear there.

Clearly you have not encountered the dangerous killer rabbits or snakes so large and terrifying that they cannot be dispatched by birdshot.

I normally carry a sidearm when deer hunting. But never did think of it when upland hunting. I suppose it is not a bad idea.

Yesterday a hunting companion kicked up a bedded down doe and almost got run over by it when it took off. Not that you would shoot a deer, but it goes to show that you never know what can happen out there.

My game vest has elastic sewn-in shell holders inside the front pockets. Holds 5 on each side. This gives me 10 shells that are secure. Spent shells can be replenished when trips back to the vehicle are made.
