    Farm country, weapon and ammo, water, snacks/lunch, grunt and can, knife and small "dog bone" sharpening rod, dragging rope, small headlamp. Lately I have been carrying binos. Gutting gloves and ziplock sandwich bag of paper towels for cleaning up and use as tp. A pillow would be appropriate as I am not adverse to a nap if the sun comes out. Sometimes just a weapon and I have had to hike back to the truck to get my knife and rope.

    In big woods add 2 or 3 compasses, gps, map, small roll of flagging tape. qt ziplock survival/overnight bag with lighter, large strike on anything matches, 2 small candles, 2 55gal drum bags/liners, whistle, wax firestarter sticks, flint striker.

    As the years go by I travel lighter and lighter.

    Just a note, paper towels are way more useful than tp. Especially after last nights venison chili and ale.

    The main thing that I take is toilet paper! Other then that i have a couple of calls, some snacks, and reading material. Everything else is straped to me or I don't need it.

    I usually hunt deer from a stand in the south. I bring water, snack, knife (on my belt), rifle, a few bullets in a quiet pack on my belt) and a Primos can call.

    If I am hunting elk in strange territory at reasonable distance from camp, I add binoculars, a compass, trail markers, GPS, water purifier, lighter, a little parachute cord and toilet paper. If the location involves long range shooting, I add a range finder.

    I carry a large pack so I can carry my coveralls into the woods and not burn up walking in with them.
    Inside I keep:
    2 small flashlights
    5 foot section of rope
    Buck 110 folding knife
    Leatherman Wave tool
    Field dressing gloves
    Gallon size zip lock bag for heart
    Bottle of raccoon urine for cover scent
    Candy bar
    Gloves and insulated face mask

    Teodoro,
    The Judge is just in case I have a crippled deer on the ground and don't want to use my 300WSM to finish him off . I never have had to use it but just in case. I guess the real reason is "just because I can". Our black bears are more afraid of me than I am of them.

    I usually carry my grunt tube, headlight and flashlight, two knives, gutting gloves, extra hat and extra gloves for walking in/out, binoculars, paracord, a dragging rope, scent elimination spray for after the walk in as well as a scent deodorizing face foam, and last but definitely not least a bottle of water.

    Sarge,

    Out of curiosity, what's the utility of the judge? Is it for popping squirrels with .410, or bear protection, or both? Or just for fun?

    OH,
    I just weighed my pack - without the coffee and food and ammo, it is about 7 1/2 lbs. I don't think that is bad. I have been lost in the Adirondacks and spent the night so I go prepared.
    On my own land, most of this stuff is on my ATV so I travel light.

    Holy cow you guys must be going way off the grid with some of the stuff you are carrying. I mainly stand hunt for deer and I carry.

    Grunt tube doe can 2 knives cause I will lose things, scent wafers a flashlight a rangefinder and my coat a lot of times because I will sweat walking in. I generally don't hunt all day because I get way to bored so that helps when I get hungry, so generally no need for sandwiches. Oh and generally my quiver is in my pack also.

    GPS if I'm hunting an unfamiliar area to mark location of downed game, compass always, snacks, one sandwich, lighter, tinder/firestarter, spare gloves, dry socks, flagging tape, skinning knife, flashlight, 30 ft of 550 cord, nitrile gloves. All of that less than 7 pounds in a pack vest. 5 rounds of ammo in a leather belt carrier and elk calls around my neck with 550 cord.

    Gad, jimbo! You'll need that GPS and a map to find all the stuff in your pack! And maybe a forklift to get it into the stand?
