Default What is necessary.....

The Scent loc thread got me thinking about all the stuff hunters carry in the woods. I have seen, and heard, hunters going through the woods looking like they are the chuckwagon on a wagon train because they carried so much.

Besides the weapon what do you carry? I'll try my list now but will probably have to edit when I look at my backpack.

Leatherman
GPS
rangefinder
flashlight
2 25' ropes to pull equipment into a tree
water bottle
safety harnes
Binoculars

tape has many uses but I use it to secure the step rail sections together to carry in/out, and to tape on tree branches to my stand/ladders ect for camo.

besides the obvious (rifle, bullets, license, knife, food, water, etc.),
binos
GPS (will add a SPOT personal locator if hunting alone)
topo map
T.P. and wipes (serve double duty of cleaning blood off hands, hopefully)
rope - two (drag and lighter one)
bandana
electrician's tape
first-aid kit (You are taking a big chance not including this. I've always carried one, and have used it on occasion - bad slip with a super sharp knife one year after gutting out a nice antelope buck.)
deer/elk calls
micro leatherman
home-made tripod for shooting (it works great!)
camera
flashlight (kind that mounts on hat)
matches or some kind of fire starter
space blanket
cell phone
two way radio if hunting with companions
I know I'm forgetting stuff, but will get back when I remember
