I think, in 52 years of deer hunting, in Wisconsin and Montana I have never fired more than two shots at a deer or antelope, elk or moose.

Big game 20
4 in the mag
4 in my coat pocket ( which ends up stuffed in my pack lol)
The rest of the box in the outside pocket of my pack so i can get them if needed

My last deer hunt i shot the whole box after i missed the first 2 and still couldn't get it back on paper dont know how or when it got bumped but it did and way off took 2 full boxes to get sited back in .

Coyotes always have one full mag in and one in the truck plus a couple 20 round boxes in the case.

when some one says that they don't need very many rounds for hunting the very first thing any of us should say is , the Second Amendment is not about hunting however hunting is listed in many state constitutions as a valid and legal reason for arms as well as those secured by the US constitution and many state constitutions.


15 is normally what I carry for my slug gun when deer hunting.

I bring more than that to camp, where I hunt there isn't a quick run to the store.

now the amount of ammo we will go through in practice would be mind boggling to some anti's like tonight we did some pistol practice , there is a drill target that we ran it actually does a very good job of finding your weakness and provides excellent target feed back and it prints on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper but it takes 50 round of ammo and I run that in about 3 minutes.

600 rounds in an evening is not difficult at all and I try and bee productive with all the ammo and not just emptying mags on single targets


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

When moose hunting for a day, I normally carry 6-10 rounds.

On 7-10 day sheep hunts in remote areas, I would take maybe 12-20 rounds. I balanced the remoteness of the country, the chance of encountering a bear, and how much weight I wanted to haul around.

I always have extra ammo at base camp. I once had scope screws loosed on me on a deer hunting trip to Kodiak, and I burned a dozen rounds trying to sight the rifle in before I realized the problem.

My deer rifle (Ruger 77 in 30-06), one in the chamber, internal mag full (4 more) and a half dozen or so in a sleeve on the stock. Years ago I had the action freeze tight while hunting in a snow, sleet, rain mix. I shot, and could barely get the action open enough to clear the spent round. No way would it pick up the next cartridge from the chamber. I was able to take one from the sleeve on the stock and chamber it. I always reload right away, whether it is for a finishing shot or a second target. Had it not been for the spare rounds in that sleeve, I would not have had the second round available.

When muzzleloader hunting, I carry enough powder, patch and ball for 10 shots.

Rabbit and squirrel, a box of 22's in a jacket pocket.

Pheasant hunting? Not enough pockets to carry all the shells I am going to need.

I'm a city kid so I need to carry way more ammo than folks that live in bush.. There is of course what ever animal I'm hunting needs shot at one maybe two rounds.... Then there are always stop signs and no trespassing signs around to shoot up.. The rail road signs have that natural big X that always looking for a few rounds...Dad always said windy days are where you use the most ammo.. More good sound shot when it's windy...
Then of course should a guy score that big buck.. no high fives for this guy. Celebratory gun fire like a freedom fighter just over ran a government out post..
So anyway
That takes big pocket and big mags and lots a rounds..I usually carry a back pack and put couple sandwiches in there too..

But then seriously?? big game...gun holds 5 and put 5 in my pack. I'm such a looser...

Usually about 10. Looking back over the years, I don't remember shooting more then 3 or 4 times in a season (big game). On a good year that usually means a deer, an elk and a bear.

I normally carry over 100. I know I don't need this many, but in the afternoons we will pull out the rifles and do a little target practice.


It's a trappers life for me

you make a good point drives are a whole different kind of hunting , one few people do any more or understand and why I carry 15 I have never shot them all but have come close and more often am borrowing to family who think 7 were going to be enough.

deer are almost never standing still.

we regularly have 40 tags , no we don't fill them all

4 or 5 in the gun, a 10 shot holder on the stock, and a box in my pocket. I have been on a few long tracking jobs. Being several miles in the woods with no ammo could be bad.


I normally only shoot once during deer season, unless it's a double.
