Top 10 Items to Carry in Your Turkey Hunting Vest

Most veteran turkey hunters carry a basic assortment of equipment into the turkey woods each spring. The following is a list of mine.

And the goal when carrying all this gear is to have it distributed in various pockets in your vest so that you move through the woods silently.

If you sound like a one-man band when you walk, you’ll very likely come home empty-handed.

So here are my 10 must-have items and three optional that can come in handy.
