I shot a 200 bird league over the weekend with 6 friendly fellow shooters. We were missing a few things during the day as it was a long shoot, so now I'm curious, what do you pack in your shooting bag?

When I head out to shoot a round my Wild Hare tournament bag contains the following:

Main chamber: Ammo, choke box, and choke wrench. The last two go into a pocket on my apron (half-vest) before shooting.

Front chamber: Glasses, extra lenses (different tints), ear plugs (including spares), energy bars, and a bottle of 5 Hour Energy for sipping during the round.

Back chamber: Allen wrenches and other small tools that may be needed for tightening or minor repairs, small can of CLP, a few cotton patches or small rags, and a bungee cord for securing my gun to a gun rack when it's windy.

Right end chamber: Lens wipes, lens spray, and a microfiber cloth.

Left end: Water bottle in the carrier that's on the bag.

I put on lip balm, sunscreen, etc. if needed before heading out, so I don't take any with me.

That's all I've ever needed so I'm curious - what were you and your friends missing?

Glasses, hearing muffs, chokes, sun and bug screen and a towel or bandana. Separate case will hold a flat of shells. With this heat, a cooler of iced down water bottles

above list are good. I would add a packable rain coat if weather forecast has any chance of rain and a trash bag to throw over my bag and ammo.

I cannot tell you how many guns I have fixed on the course. My bag is full of odd sized little tools.

PLUS a box of spreader loads that has been there at least one full year.

Glasses, extra ear plugs, hand towel, leatherman tool, pens, eyeglass cleaner, band aids, safety pins, rubber bands, gun grease, bug spray and of course ammo. I carry drinks in a cooler. Some of the items listed are the small travel size. I apply sunscreen at the car before I go out.

Good topic! Shells don’t generally go in my bag as I use a cart. Image
Cleaning supplies, eye and ear gear, shooting towel, chokes and log books for certain guns.

Water, sunscreen, and eventually shells. My buddy took the cart and got water and shells from his truck, but everyone left the sunscreen at home. Usually I shoot alone and so don't need to pack much because it goes quick. Shooting with 6 other people it took most of the day to do 200 league targets. So it got me thinking that I need to be more prepared next time! It was a fun day and a good time though!

Sorry, but Tramadol reacts in me like an aspirin; all I know when I popped my calf muscle last week was in 20 minutes the pain had really subsided, but then I have always had a high tolerance for things like that, or tylenol#3, or hydrocodone.
What DOES mess me up like an Actifed on steroids is a Flexeril - it does help with the back spasms but wipes me out for a long nap, and leaves me tired the next day.
