Anyone flown with one of these slik 700's?  My hunt is in AZ and I am flying on SW.  Should be plenty of room with overheads given the restrictions on every other seat.  Just not sure if they will deny me at last minute.  I have a chance to ship it down with some other gear, but sort of like to keep my "must have" hunt gear with me as carry on (aside from gun).  I always carry my glass, and a full set of hunting clothes and other flight legal gear as carry on in my Kuiu pack.

I also don't wana be the guy who has to hand over my carry on because of size or lack of room...that would be gut wrenching

I always carry on my tripod, probably 30 trips or so. Never had a problem, even with one of the tall Altas that is probably 24” or more broken down. I flew last week with an outdoorsman, no problem and tons of room in overhead bins with the lower seat capacity. My bigger concern is always the big pack that I carry on, but haven’t had an issue with that either. I load it with all my optics to keep them with me.

I was thinking worse case I might have to gate check, I just really want it under my control.  I can borrow a rifle from family if I have to, but not so much a tripod and the entire hunt is behind glass so tripod is a must.  Last time I had a shorter tripod and carried that and my 12x56 glass on the plan with me.  Set of camo, glass, license and pack are pretty much the must haves to hunt.
