What, in your opinion, is the most important piece of equipment you take on a hunt (besides rifle, bow, bullets, etc.)?

      Knife, compass, and fire starter. You can do anything you need to do to survive with those three things. A good sharpening stone would not be a bad thing to have on hand either.

        I am surprised that nobody has suggested a GPS navigation device, and only one passing mention of a cell phone. Could it be that they rely on batteries?

          If hunting in an area where you get cell service (which does not always apply for me) a cell phone kept on a readily accessible outer pocket. Too many stories of people suspended by their safety harness, with broken legs, etc. not to take advantage of this device. I hate phones, but have broken down and now take one to the woods with me (on vibrate mode) A small first aid kit always goes with me also along with a compass.

            I take a phone as well. I have taken a tourniquette as well as field dressings. Bandaids don't always do the job. But if I'm hunting a familiar spot I only carry a phone. Usually my dad or brother head out to my location within an hour or so if I go out alone and they decide to hunt.

                    Most cell phones have GPS, if you dial 911 they will find you.

                      ALL ABOVE IS EXCELLENT IDEAS. IN ADDITION TO WHAT HAS BEEN MENTIONED I THINK ONE THING EVERYBODY AS FORGOTTEN TO MENTION HAVING TOP QUALITY HUNTING CLOTHES AND BEING DRESSED PROPERLY FOR THE CLIMATE YOUR HUNTING IN AND ALSO DRESSING IN LAYERS. ALL THIS IS JUST AS IF NOT MORE IMPORTANT AS ALL MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOUR NOT DRESSED PROPERLY YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SIT COMFORTABLY IN YOUR STAND AS LONG AND MOSTLY YOU CAN GET HYPOTHERMIA IF YOUR NOT PROPERLY DRESSED FOR LONG HOURS IN THE COLD.
