What's in your hunting pack???
« on: October 08, 2017, 08:47:38 PM »
What's in your pack for deer hunting? Its super easy to buy one of each at the store and before you know it your hunting pack weighs 50 lbs without any game in it. I'm talking for day trips away from your rig.

My pack:
- Eberlestock "Just One Pack" Western Slope (6.9 lbs)
- 350 lumin flash light (.25)
- extra set batteries
- lightweight 6x8 blue tarp (.5)
- two giant thick trash bags (.25)
- pkg 4 game bags (.25)
- buck folding knife (.25)
- pack Gerber hatchet (super light weight) (1.25)
- lighter
- 50' cord
- one box of bullets (1)
- Leica 1600 range finder (usually in pocket)
- Leupold 10x42 binos (1)
- 1 gal ziplock with granola bars/jerky/snacks (1)
- 1 gal ziplock with TP, rubber gloves and wet wipes (.25)
- small/basic first aid kit (.25)
- life straw
- 1/2 gal water (4)

This is all under 20 lbs (actually right around 17 lbs!)

What else do you bring or would you take out?
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

portable charger for your cell phone/GPS etc. Cold weather can zap a cell phone battery very quick.

Only God knows what's in there.  It feels like a bowling ball after about an hour-and-a-half. 

For sure there's a hunting knife, rope, compass and GPS, range finder, extra batteries, headlamp, flashlight, cow calls, grunt tube, rattling device, a lighter, H20 and Power Bars, drag rags and deer urine scents, extra rain coat, gloves, game bags, scissors, and I think, a half-eaten sandwich.

I carry the usuals, one thing that I carry that maybe most guys don't is glow sticks, easier than flagging tape to see in the dark.

Flashlight, water, snack bar, lighter, windproof matches, can of sterno, gloves, binos, predator call, extra knife, rope, batteries, and some say overkill but I also have and IFAK.
