    Default Turkey vests

    Any of y'all hunt turkeys?
    If you do you most likely have a turkey vest.
    If you don't it is a multi-pocket, game pouch, w/seat, in al different configurations.
    Example:

    I have been using my old one for bow hunting, but might be a option for carrying gear, or as a BOB.

    Nothing like the sound of turkeys on the roost to get youre heart thumping.I have an O'l Tom vest.I think it would work for a BOB if you wanted to travel light and fast.

    I, too, had thought about using one as a bug out vest. Wasn't sure how durable it would be though.

    Dang when I read the thread title I thought it gave turkey dressing a whole new meaning.
    some fella confronted me the other day and asked "What's your problem?" So I told him, "I don't have a problem I am a problem"

    Well with all the "stuff" carry in mine, using it as a BOB wouldn't be a stretch, just remove several calls, and some of the ammo.
    Already has T.P., water bottle, fire starting stuff, (3 ways) face mask, heavy and light gloves, spare socks, contractor bags, poncho, mini nocs, hat with face mask, stocking cap, ammo, folding knife, flashlight, walkie talkie, snacks, hand warmers.

    Also a lot of different styles out there, at all different cost.
    The one I posted the link for is on clearance.

    hunter, is that the same vest you use? If so how do you like lit? I am looking to replace mine this year.Not that it needs it I'm just not real happy with it..I was thinking of just using a fanny pack last year.But the more stuff I took out of the vest the quicker I realized I would need a bigger fanny pack.March is still a ways off so I have plenty of time to figure it out.

    No, but it's close, and on sale.

    I have a couple of them, the one I use most, I had for a long time, and it looks like it.

    Some are just a wide belt with pockets hanging on it.

    I like the full vest, more.
    They have pockets on both sides, and also on the inside, where you keep important stuff, that you don't use too often, like the T.P. and cold weather gloves.

    We have a fall hunt here, not as much fun as calling them in as in the spring.

    The fall turkeys , mostly you bush-wack them, but they are grouping up, so if you find one, you find a bunch.

    The zone I live in does not have a fall hunt.I wish it did.My spring season is only 12 days long and each day ends at Noon.It makes for some tough days when the toms will not leave the hens.

    I don't think many turkeys live in Jerusalem. Not wild ones anyway. Hunting is probably prohibited in the stores. Just a guess.
