    I'm not going to post my whole list, but one thing I carry and have not seen on the other lists is extra socks. Gotta have the feet warm and dry.

    Bump for a great thread!

    Now, the real question for all of us is... "What would you add or subtract from your original list?"

    I'll edit mine as soon as I can get back online for a few minutes.

    Go!

    I used to post as 'beav'. The only things I'll add is a small saw to split the pelvis, rope to haul my rifle up the tree and harness, rangefinder maybe, monocular maybe, calls maybe, gloves to wear field dressing, very small light, MRE if it's more than a half day.

    I usually hunt within 1/4 to 1/2 mile of my truck (and I keep enough things in there to survive a zombie apocalypse ). What actually goes to the field with me is a shorter list.

    Rifle/shells or bow/arrows
    Sidearm (always)
    Bog pod shooting sticks if rifle hunting
    Seat cushion
    Cell phone
    Knife
    Rope
    Sealed MRE condiment pack (TP, matches, etc....)
    If rifle hunting I also take my suppressed 10-22 and whack squirrels somedays
