    How many rounds of ammo for hunting?

    Saw a thread on CGN about this topic and thought it might be interesting.

    What's your ammo load for hunting?

    How many rounds do you have for the hunting season?

    How many do you carry on your person?

    Do you have some extra in a truck or saddlebag?

    Usually two boxes. I’ve seen a few guys drop their rifles and not have enough ammo to sight them back in.

    While hunting I carry enough for a loaded magazine and 10 more on my belt carrier for my carried rifle. When out with a .22 I take a full box and whatever in a partial box, when the partial box is consumed I take another full box to go with the one I had left. In my field ammo box there is always a few more cartridge boxes full of rounds as well.

    Backpack hunting-6 or less, 3 for shooting an animal, 3 for potential problems on the way home(2 full mags)

    Any other time-3 in the mag and whatever is on my hip holster, maybe 6 more.

    Extended trips out of province- usually an extra box or so in the truck.

    My favourite load and the one I carry most often is Barnes TTSX 168gr. Pretty much can only hunt weekends and would carry more ammo for a 7-10 backcountry trip, but usually have 3 in magazine (1 in the chamber if still hunting solo and I know there's an animal nearby); 6 in the buttstock pouch (lots of predators in most areas I hunt). Always have an extra box in the truck and a box of cheap stuff for target practice before heading home

    I carry a full box in my rifle case, then 8 in my hunting ruck sack, in addition to the rounds in my clip...

    A full 20 round box back at camp and 10 rounds on me. So I guess 30 rounds......

    9 on the stock, 5 in the pack. Couple of boxes in the truck, I like a afternoon shoot in a pit if I come across one.
    Man glitter is sawdust, glue, silicone, paint, welding holes in shirts is just a extra.

    No one on there death bed ever said; I should have spent more time at work.
