What brand or style do you use for Dove hunting? I’ve Game Winner or Magellan the past couple of years, but quality isn’t as good as I would like. Looking for the next best mouse trap.

Filson game bag. Expensive, but will last forever.

Army surplus web gear, mine is at least 50 years old and still useful. also have the web gear pack that I attach to the back that pu the birds in. Canteen for water for the dog and to wash my hands. The 2 ammo pouches hold more than a box of shells. I bought one for my neighbor a few years ago, I think it cost about $24. Check at the local Army surplus stores.

Redhead strap vest, had it for well over a decade now, works great.

Being from the King Ranch, this one is a lil' spendy at $200, but I sure like the form. I have one similar that's made out of some sort of duck fabric and has been used hard

I put mine in a zip lock bag and then the ice chest with the drinks. Just don't put more than one persons birds in one ice chest, Mr. GW doesn't like that.


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Cheap one from Academy that goes around the waist and attach suspenders to it. Works great for fat boys like me.

Texas heat and humidity are brutal during September...so I opt for this combination of belted game bag and game bird tote...works well and keep the dove nice for after the hunt pics...

I still use a 3 bag Walls that I've had for years. Made out of cordura I think.

I use a plastic bag from a supermarket. I sit, don't move around much, when dove hunting. If there is a trash can, etc. I clean them when the day's done.

I use a Primos vest... It's holding up well but I wish I'd have gotten 2 as they are no longer made

Get a large key ring and some paracord. Use a 24" piece of paracord, tie a hangman's noose for the doves feet on both ends and then loop it onto the key ring. Make 7 and you have one under a days limit.

I like the inexpensive mesh type. Need to find another one, the zipper is failing on mine.
