Do I feel stupid

Two years ago I had an elk hunt and two days later a deer hunt with my ML. So I loaded my ML and my older daughters ML for elk and we hunted both deer and elk with that load. No shot opportunities during hunting so I shot and cleaned my ML and my daughters and put them away. This last spring we went out to start shooting and I opened the ML box and did not have my powder measure, powder flask, short ball starter, cappers or any of the other needed devices to shoot the ML's. Now I felt really bad to replace all that stuff since my old stuff had a nice patina after 20 years of use. I did and we shot all summer. I had also lost a nice pair of binoculars a few years ago so after searching the house high and low for a few years I gave up and ordered a new pair.

You guessed it, loading to go hunting this year my younger daughter found the old binoculars I replaced and had received the new pair a week before. We get out to the hunting area and I open my hunting bag to load snacks, water, maps, etc. and low and behold there is all the ML shooting stuff I replaced in the spring.

Do I feel stupid now!

    Not stupid! My field pack has collected a lot of stuff over the years.
    1 is none and 2 is one

    That's easy to do when ML hunting as their can be a lot more stuff to take with you that you need. I try and keep all my field equipment for ML hunting in a camo fanny pack which makes it easy to access and keeps it all in one place. However I find myself sticking things in my hunting clothes pockets mainly due to lazyness.
