Transporting small game.

Hey guys and gals, lets get some ideas going here. I pulled out my old orange vest that I have been using for 15yrs now & this thing looks like it has been through a war with blood on it and tears, I went to wally world and picked up a new one while I was there grocery shopping but none have the game pouch on the back of them, so how does every body carry the game you shoot while in the field? I am thinking a plastic shopping bag and just clip it to my belt loop.

I kept looking til I found one that still had the pouch in the back. Think I might have gotten it from Cabela's 2 or 3 years ago.

Re: Transporting small game.

plastic shopping bag is going to hold heat and spoil game. I'd look for something else.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Spoiling won't be an issue.
The real issue is the grocery bag getting shredded and you losing harvested game.

I agree, the ones with built in pouches are still available at stores, just a few $ more, and well worth it.

I put harvested game in a plastic bag if I dress/skin in the field, then throw it in the game bag on my jacket.
Otherwise its just thrown in jacket to be dressed out later.

Dick's had Browning vests with the pouch on sale for around $20 the other week.

I don't know how many have seen the 18th century versions of game bags but they work great. You have to knit them as you would a fishnet. I used hemp twine that you can find in craft stores.

Re: Transporting small game.

What you picked up was just an orange vest, probably used for deer hunting for example, that you would wear on the outside of your camo clothes that you need to wear to comply with state orange requirements because everything that you own is camo!!!! .... It is not an Upland small game vest.
If you haven't worn it yet, I would return it and put your money towards an upland game vest if that is what you need. I have several, some heavy fabric for good briarproof snags and wear, and these can be warm on hot days, so I have some lighter fabric vest as well to wear when it's warm out.
this is a good upland vest that isn't too expensive: heavy briarproof fabric with front loading game pockets By the way, I have put my bloody birds in a plastic shopping bag first before loading in my vest for as long as I can remember. It helps keep your vest inside from stinking of old blood. The bird isn't going to spoil in just a few hours while hunting.

Watch ebay too, you can find hardly used ones for god prices. I just picked up a Scheels light weight vest with front loader pockets for $15 including shipping a few months ago to replace a 15 year old faded vest. Scheels Upland Vest
