If, like me, you would rather carry two small shot bags than one over stuffed one, you have found that while creeping through the woods, they tend to slide around to the front and get in your way, no matter how short the straps are. Here's an idea- Tie the bags together behind you- far enough apart so that they will ride right under your arms where they are supposed to. The most secure method i found was by using a buckle garter, run through slits in the straps. On each bag cut a small vertical slit in the strap, just above the bag, and close to the edge. Put on the two bags, then run the garter through the slits and buckle it. Once adjusted right, you can keep the bags buckled together and still get them on and off easy. Now, no matter how far you run or crawl or creep, those bags will always stay put, right under your arms and out of the way

Same here. I prefer to use two small bags to distribute the weight and prevent backache. Tie both two bags is a good tip. Thanks.

I shoot large ball muskets quite a lot.I carry the loose ball in a leather poke on my belt(or a beltpouch when using cartidges) and only tools and other gear(flints,rag,oil) for keeping the musket in good order in the actual shotpouch.Keeps the wieght off my shouder and the light bag doesnt swing around too much.

I use a .60 cal fusil, and I only need a small shot pouch. I carry everything one needs for a versatile smoothbore, but the pouch is not heavy and does not get in the way. If you guys are really having trouble controling the shot pouch, try securing it under you equipment/waist belt.
