been toting an old live hen around with me, but she is getting more and more pissed off about being shoved in that vest each year, plus got a few years on her and the boys don't find her yelps as sexy as they used to. may have to catch a young fresh hen this year to replace her
besides that i got a yellow yelper box call, a primos slate, my owl hooter, mrytle the decoy, couple of extra shells, chalk, rubber bands, some sandpaper, and couple of water bottles and a snack
I carry a few mouth calls, Ol' Yeller and Aluminator friction calls, several different strikers, an old Quaker Boy box call, chalk, sandpaper, ammo, a couple of head nets and pairs of gloves, hen decoy (mainly kept in the vest and used as a back cusion), bug spray, thermacell, a couple of blue shop towels, ink pen and depending on where I'm hunting, maybe my GPS.
3 mouth calls
1 glass call

I shot a nice gobbler a few years ago only had 2 shells in my gun- enough right:smack: Well this ole tom was working up the ridge to me and I shot him he piled up I jumped up and went down to him got about 30 yards and he popped up and took off down the ridge I shot and missed I chased his butt dropped 2 more shells(All I had trying to load the gun:smack: )Thank goodness he ran between 2 small pines and wedged himself I beat him with my 1100 gun barrel ! I remember standing on his head after running over 100 yrds wondering who was going to die 1st me or him:smack:
Shells and headnets are things that I always try to carry plenty of.
I've missed two turkeys in my life... both on the same morning. Nothing like shooting seven times with nothing to show for it.
I try to keep plenty of shells just in case bad luck decides to strike again.
Cushion, Primos Freak (yes I know it's a little gimmicky but a dang fine call to my ears), Cody slate, couple of strikers, half dozen diaphragms, some TP, and water. If I wind up drinking out of the creek, I take a little Boudreaux's Butt Paste the next day (learned this one from redleg76). Maybe some Immodium. Usually a gun and way too many shells.
