Excellent advise. Simplifying the pouch and it’s contents just makes for a better time in the field. More comfort, less fumbling. I’ve learned this personally over the past couple of years and have now dispensed with much of my kit that I thought was “necessary” at the time.No. My hunting bag only weighs a few ounces more than the number of round balls I carry. It really should be light as a feather. My shot pouch for my fowling pieces weighs the most but I weight the number of shots I take per outing and put a few shots more than i shoot per outing to keep the weight down. Drop tins, ball bags, etc. Go light, carry just what you need for fire x shots.
