    The basics at least: water, some extra food, means of making a fire, and means of securing food, and some type of portable shelter.

    These are all great tips. You should always have something to start a fire and extra clothes. Flashlight as well as toliet paper come in handy. A GPS is also probably the best thing you could have because cell phones don't work all the time. I also agree with having a small thin piece of plastic to put food on as well as if don't have a sleeping bag it would be a good thing to sleep on. I usually use polypropylene i buy from http://www.iplasticsupply.com It always comes in handy.

    3. 2 Flashlights, portable GPS (map capable), lots of extra batteries, compass, maps. Cell phone with portable outdoor charger (charge 2 go), vehicle charger. If you are on a wilderness hunt and you are 10+ miles into the woods, the possibility of getting lost or injured is significant, look into buying or renting a satellite phone/accessories (means of charging), your call will go through.

    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.

    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

    13. COMMON SENSE: If it looks like a storm - don't go. If it looks too dangerous - stay back. If it's getting dark - go back to camp. By KNOWING YOUR LIMITATIONS and AVOIDING POTENTIAL HAZARDS, you increase your odds of your outing being just that, a good day out.

    12. Remember, in a hunting situation, you will have your hunting clothes on, your weapon with you. Keep all of your gear with you, don't start shedding and throwing away gear in an emergency situation. Your hunting backpack will weigh 15-25 pounds. GET IN SHAPE AND EXERCISE BEFORE YOU HUNT.

    11. Water: pack in more than enough water; carry more than enough water during day trips, know where water sources are in your hunting area, mark them in your GPS.

    10. Food: Not only your day lunch, but what you pack in case you're out overnight, or several nights; granola bars, candy bars, jerky, bouillon cubes, etc.

    9. Money: $20-$50 stored into your car kit or back-pack. If you were stranded or have to walk out of the bush and you need something to eat and drink, you have the means to buy.
