Default Bucklick Creek High Back Turkey Lounger

Well all, you asked for it, so here it is, thank the admin by making lots of quality posts here!

I would like to report on my new Bucklick Creek High Back Extreme Turkey lounger. I just got it in the mail from Cabelas for $49.95. At first sight it is VERY nice. Super comfortable to sit in, a ton of adjustability, comfortable to wear too. One BIG problem though: The pockets are all too small!

I can put my River valley Double glass call in the pocket, but the flap doesn't close all the way, makes me worry about losing it. Next I try to fit my Quaker Boy box call in the box call pocket. It fits, but also will not close with the button closure. So next, where to put the strikers? No pocket for them either! Now there are two large zipper pockets to hold anything you want, but who wants their calls rattling around? So I give my box call to my daughter which amazingly fits nicely in her Mossy Oak Jakes vest for kids. I put my strikers in the box call pocket, rattling a bit, but better than anywhere else. As far as my glass, I just hope I don't lose it.

My husband ordered the Bucklick Creek Guide Series vest direct from Bucklick Creek for $69.99. All of his calls fit, which would explain the upgrade and why mine was on sale. He felt bad that my calls didn't fit and picked up the Lil'Deuce slate for me at Gander Mountain. If you had planned on purchasing a turkey lounger from Bucklick creek, I highly recommend the Guide series, my husband is thrilled with it, took it on a show and tell tour to show a few buddies of his last night. My 3&quot; lil' deuce fits perfect by the way, now I just have to find a small box call.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Great review Ami. Congrats on making the first deer hunting official gear review. I can't wait to see other gear reviews as well.

Great review. As for a small box call, check out the Mini Master from M.A.D, it's only 8&quot; total, or the Road Runner II from Blodgett Custom Calls if you wanna pay a little extra. Have you thought of returning the vest to Cabelas'?

Thanks for the leads on the small box call, PA. I bought the High back extreme to simply save some cash. I just laid out $70 for my hubby's guide series and $34 for my daughter's Mossy Oak Jake vest, so I thought I'd save $20 and get the one on sale for me. (Note: families that hunt together cost a fortune, if one gets it, we all get it!) It's still a great vest, just a bit inconvenient if you have larger diameter friction calls. My husband is an upholsterer, he said he may be able to add some divided sections to the large zipper pocket interiors for me.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I have the guide series (just got it for this season) simply put I LOVE it.

As always though there is room for improvement. A little more padding in the seat would be nice. There is webbing inside the pockets that I guess are designed to keep your stuff seperate rather than have it end up in a jumble at the bottom of the pocket (one large pocket with two access zippers. My biggest grip is the elastic isn't strong enough to hold things in place in the webbing and it tends to fall out and end up in the a jumble in the bottom anyway. If you are careful of what you put in webbing (nothing very heavy) it tends to work out okay.

That being said the vest is comfortable to wear, easy to get on and off, carries LOTS of stuff. It would be nice if the adjustments for the back rest were a little easier to adjust. If you are like me you will find your self adjusting it depending on the ground you set up on. As it is with a little practice it isn't too bad. Once properly adjusted the lounger is just that a lounger. I have had set ups that have felt like I was sitting in the Lazboy back at the house. You just have to guard against falling asleep! Up before daylight, humpin through the woods, warm spring day, comfortable chair = nap time!

Play with it BEFORE you get in the woods. While you are waiting for that first gobbler to boom off the roost is NO time to be playing around with your vest or trying to adjust it.
