I saw a turkey vest last year that I really liked.
It was the Mossy Oak Supreme Elite or something like that.
It has one of those big 3" thick pads on it.
Everywhere I found it the price was right at a hundred bucks and I just couldn't see it.
They had it at Gander Mountain in Paducah today and it was $79 so I went ahead and shot the moon.
Guess I will transfer everything over to it tomorrow. \:D

Good vest, and hope it works out for you. If you hate it, you might check out the "Limbhanger" it is one the came out with last year to replicate a limited edition vest. It is pretty slick.

Yessir! Ive been through several vests and the Limbhanger is right up there at the top. I bought one last year and wouldnt trade it for nuthin. ;\) The elite is a good vest too....but it just wasnt comfortable on me.

I don't personally wear it, but it looks good. I wear a Bucklick vest as I like the self supporting seat.

Becareful, the more room ya got the more s*** you'll carry.
But the pouch in the back is worth every penny when luggin a big bird out of the mtns.

I bought a new vest last year before the season and never wore it...I just wore my bow hunting gear and the vest is still in my camo bag with the tags still on it. Good luck this season Ruger

Agreed. I have one that I got from bass pro a couple of years ago with about 20 pockets for around $50. It was cool at first to put every call in my arsenal until I put it on and it was way too heavy. As long as you have a pocket for a couple of slate calls, box call, mouth call and another deep pocket, it will work just fine.

Very true!! I usually wear mine about the 1st week of season then it starts getting hot & heavy & I start trying to stay cool & light. They do come in handy when totin a bird out though!!
