Ummm 5 in the rifle plus a few rounds in the backpack. I ain’t going to war. Just trying to kill a deer. Funny thing is, I shoot 3x a season but somehow end up missing about 12 rounds when I put it all up.

I have a full mag +1, and I have some neat little Velcro ammo holders that I keep in my backpack. I have one for my wife’s ammo, mine and my daughters. My boys have their own.
When we dog hunted, I kept a box with me always.

4 rifle rounds. I usually don’t get in too many firefights on the way back to the truck in the FreeState so no need for any more.

for day to day hunting, I'll carry 3-5 in the gun and probably another 3-5 in my pack. If Im going on a long trip to hunt I'll carry the same loadout day to day but will bring 40 rounds with me (in case something gets bumped and I end up needing to sight in at location) When I go to Alaska this Fall were bringing one rifle (in case we can't get close enough for bows) two 44 mag revolvers, 40 rifle rounds and 20 handgun rounds.

Depends on the rifle. Some I have cartridge holders on, some I dont. Magazine rifles I keep another magazine with me. But normally 5 rounds of rifle ammunition and a cocked and locked 1911 with an extra magazine.

It never ceases to amaze me how much unnecessary stuff people take hunting with them. I have plenty of hogs to shoot so I keep a box of ammo in the ranger but only take 5 to the stand unless the goal is to shoot hogs then I take the AR. I guess I just hate carrying stuff in and out enough that I go more minimalist each season unless I have the kids with me. Then, I pack snacks and entertainment to keep them content during the slow times. Lol

Since all my rifles burnt up in the flood and don’t have any rounds for firearms anymore, I’ll usually have a pack of 100 3/8” clay balls on my pocket for my super duper sling shot!!

So 2 bows, 1 long gun, 2 pistols, and a lot of ammo, and you're packing all of that on the hunt?

In Alaska I carried 4 in the gun and maybe 6 xtra in my pack. The 3 states here if I'm gun hunting, 4 in gun 3-4 in pack.
Bow hunting, typically no guns unless grizzly are around then my pistol usually gets added. I don't worry about black bears and cats...

Hey, to each his own. Be thankful you got that type of ground to hunt on. I had a farm in Hartselle that I maybe would see one buck a season
