          I would also add an axe, a reliable way to start fire, a pot to cook in, flares (which double for starting fires as well as signaling), and a flashlight with extra batteries.

            Add to the above mentioned items a well stocked medical kit. All that other stuff doesnt really matter if your bleeding out.

              I’ve worked Search and Rescue for years and found you can carry allot of stuff and not have what you need. kvlazer22 has good items for starters and I will add these items too,
              A good shovel
              Heavy duty hand winch
              Small jar of Vaseline and magnesium fire stick for starting a fire. A 2x2 cloth saturated with Vaseline will burn 6 to 10 minutes.
              The #1 item is “SPOT” personnel satellite tracking unit. Costs about $150.00 and it works great! I have one and my wife can track my progress to see the location and previous locations. WWW.FINDMESPOT.COM

                  If you dont want to spend money on SPOT, basic items are kind of what klaver mentioned, and heres the link to making a handly little survival kit.

                        I would make that a wool blanket & throw in a wool sweater. I'd put it all in either heavey duty garbage bags (can be made into a poncho) or a 5 gallon bucket or two. you can carry water in the bucket or use it for other things. I would throw in about 5 55 gallon trash bags they come in handy and don't take up much space. 2 1 gallon ziplocks to keep my stuff dry and together and a half dozen power bars or something that will keep and is in a compact package. A good knife or 22 pistol will make things a lot easier in the food department also.

                            Remember the time tested saying: IT'S BETTER TO HAVE IT AND NOT NEED IT, THAN TO NEED IT AND NOT HAVE IT !!!
                            1. Leave a written “PLAN” of your hunt/trip information with friends and family, in the event of an emergency. Provide dates, locations, (hunt units), including departure and arrival. If the "EXPECTED" happens, then someone will be looking for you and they will know where to look.

                              2. Clothing / gear for the conditions you are in. Desert region: long sleeve shirt, wide brim hat, plenty water, ice, and ice chest. Winter Conditions: warm clothing (wool, fleece, thinsulate, gore-tex), gloves, blankets, etc.
