I keep 4 in the rifle and two in a side saddle on the stock. Most of the time I have a 100 round count box in the truck nearly full.

Yup. My loadout always accounts for a situation like that where ever I hunt, public or private. When hunting public land the possibility of running into Green Teeth and his inbred cousins is always a possibility too. Plan accordingly.

Normally I just put the full 20 round box in my pack at the start of season and call it good. Both of my rifles are .270 and where and how I am hunting determines which one I carry. Currently that box has 15 rounds in it after killing 3 deer last year. Probably will replenish the box after range time before the season starts. I am a firm believer of shoot till they drop or until I can’t see them anymore. I’ve had to knife a couple in my early years of hunting and would rather not have to do that again.

3 or 4 total bullets. No more than that ever.

In my 32 years since I first began hunting, it has never taken me more than 1 or 2 bullets to ever get the job done, and rarely more than 1 shot per deer. I have both of my godfathers to thank for that because they spent a lot of time teaching me how to shoot well, which is critical to hunting success (obviously).

Fortunately I don’t think I have to worry about any of that where I hunt. If I ever have to refer to what I take hunting as a “loadout” I may just quit hunting and pick up another hobby

I have the Hornady ammo butt pad holders on most of my rifles.

I usually have 4/5 rounds in my rifle, 5 in the ammo holder loops, and 3 or 4 in the zip up part of the ammo holder.

Tote about that many with all my rifles.

^Yep. I always keep extra on me or in my pack. I hate the feeling of walking around with one bullet left in the gun if I shoot coyotes/hogs/whatever during the hunt. Just like to be prepared and it’s pretty simple to tote a couple extra bullets

I have 4 rounds in my hunting rifle. I have the 16 rounds left in box. I always carry my concealed carry while hunting as well with 3 magazines.
