I've seen a few turkey hunting shows lately where the hunter forgot to load his gun. I've always said, I'd rather not see any as to miss one, but I think a click would be the worst. Has anyone had this happen?

It is the worst, I have only had it happen once, but it haunts me to this very day. I am still obsessive about sliding the bolt open when I sit down with a bird just to make sure.

Not yet. I make sure and load as soon as I'm set up.

Loaded from the time I leave the truck until I either shoot a turkey or return to the truck empty handed.

I hunted a bird all year long about 5years ago. I finally had him within 45 yards on the last day of the season and click! I make double sure now!!
