Everyone got their style that's for sure. I used to be a turkey vest guy with a harris bipod on the 243 and the foxpro in the turkey vest with calls around my neck,shotgun in one hand, drag rope, and a butt cushion. Now it's all different. I don't get far from the truck maybe 400 yds at the farthest. I usually carry calls around my neck, shooting sticks, butt pad, rifle or shotgun not both anymore. I prefer the shotgun. If hunting with buddy I always grab the pump. I now also carry binos I call pretty open stuff and my eyes are getting to be a problem. I am going to add some sort of chair and not a short one either. Maybe a bucket with swivel seat. Also, going to start calling with big bore PCP air rifle this year.
If you are going to be stupid you better be tough.
