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.
I think I've seen you in the the woods. We're you wearing one sock? 💩

If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

I've always kept those in my wallet.  I always have the same wallet, but frequently carry different packs.

I'm with you, sometimes different pack or no pack. Have my DL, CC, some cash, keys, hunting license in my bino harness.

I was going to say, am I the only one that carries TP (and an ample amount, I might add) or do yall just start the day off with knee-height socks? Or do you use the natural resources around you like pine cones to cut down on clothing weight?

I carry a Tenzing 1700 and I keep taking things out and it eventually gets loaded back up. Currently I carry first aid supplies (bandage and dressing), tp/paper towels, fire starter & lighter, flagging tape, space blankets, a pillow case, spare gloves and a fleece beanie, paracord, buck folding knife, electrical tape, zip ties, headlamp, flashlight, extra batteries, licence and tags, protein and or calorie bars, my lunch and a filtering water bottle. I also have lightweight rain gear that attaches to the bottom straps and during elk season i carry a Gerber saw, hatchet and skinning knife. If I'm gonna be out all day there's probably a paperback in a zip lock that I read if I find a comfortable spot to rest.
In my younger days there was usually a couple (at least) cans of Schmidt thrown in instead of the paperback.

Besides the basic necessities of hunting items, TP & wet ones, redundant fire starters, stuff to keep you dry and survivably warm overnight, navigation and communications gear, here are a few others I've found useful.

> A 1/3 cup stainless steel measuring cup.  Wad up one or two envelopes of instant soup or hot chocolate  in it.  With mine I have melted snow, heated morale-building soup, hot water to warm my insides, collected drips of water from a rock face, dipped water from tiny pools of seep, dug holes in snow or dirt, and probably others uses I have forgotten.  And it is small enough to get lost in a parka pocket.

> Four feet or so of light snare wire.  Useful to repair packs and gear strongly, fabricate things including shelter and crutches, and even snare rabbits. 

> Tiny notebook and pencil in a Ziploc.

> Tiny flashlight to see to change batteries in my headlamp.  That saved my bacon on a sleety night near timberline in the North Cascades one November.

> Flagging tape cut into 1/3 width strips (I cut around the roll, pull off long strips and don't carry the center spool).  It goes farther and I recognize mine.  It doesn't take much if you are looking for it. 


I like a light weight summit pack size of 3000 cu. in. or more, and carry it mostly empty except when I put outer clothes in it.  It will take a hefty load of boneless meat for my first trip out.  On some alpine day hunts I have attached my day pack to a pack frame with plan to carry out a major load of meat lashed to the frame pack.

I do not carry a hatchet but have medi-vaced and taken to ER a couple of men who did.  A hatchet is a wonderful tool with a perfect radius of motion to chop my shin bone.   :P
