I'd go with Buckfever on this one. My scent control items and the doe estrus bleat can. As funny as this may seem I have a cell phone that is deactivated but it still tells time and plays games (silently). More importantly my kids are always messing with it and I get to scroll through all the crazy/funny pictures they take. It's a great way to pass the time when I get fidgety.

my compact binoculars, it's nice to see what's coming before it comes in too close

I don't use anything special my attentativeness is what gets me the deer. In my blind a pair of binoculars won't do you much good, and wind control is not a problem either, cuz I have always taken deer that travel from the south east to the north by northwest and most of the time that is where the wind comes from.

i buy new toys every year its getting pretty crowded in my pack.This is a great question.HMMMMM i'm not sure but for field dressing deer i would say its the kodipack set of 2 knives and a saw.But i really like my binoculars with the harness that holds them around your chest and not your neck .makes it so easy to carry and use.i think they were from crooked horn but i think cabelas ,bass pro ,etc sell em

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

If I had to pick just one it would be binoculars, in riffle season that is what I use the most. But what would I do without the range finder, GPS, compass, camera, grunt tube, and rattling horns. :) I guess the only thing I don't carry is some kind of scent control.

I would have to say my Scope.......when it all comes down to it....I probably wouldn't take some of the shot I have taken if I didn't have a scope. I probably wouldnt have shot my nice 8 pointer this year if I didnt have a scope either.

Timberghost has a good idea with the cell phone. Many people don't know this, but you can still call 911 even on a deactivated cell. so if you don't want a bill but want one only for emergencies it's the way to go.
