Depends if I'm huntin alone or not. I try not to carry a lot of stuff if I'm by myself and might have to carry a coyote or coyotes out of the field. There have been times when I had to set all my stuff down at a location (except my rifle),go get my coyotes then go back and get all my stuff. That's where huntin with a buddy really shines.
I didn't climb to the top of the food chain to eat carrots.
