Mark, sounds like you're itchin' to go already! Don't blame ya one bit. As for me, I always end up carryin' in my pack TOO MUCH STUFF.

Really, I think the K.I.S.S. philosophy is in order here, and do my best not to carry too much. Most items I carry have more than one application. For example, t. paper is the best (biodegradable)blood trail marker there is. I hate to see all that pink ribbon in the woods  :(

All my gear get thrown in a Catquiver 3 plus more tied on the outside.. My "MUST" haves are Maglite,TP, knife and small bone saw,rope,calls, niff-t-seat,cover scent and camera. These always go with me. Of course I usually have way too much stuff and also tie on extra clothes on the outside of my catquiver. I sneak in slow as I can and no matter what the weather I will ALWAYS get hot walking in. I am thick headed and finially realized just to sneak in a camo T and get dressed when on stand and cooled off.. Never said I was quick.. Ha.. Mark, when are we getting that squirrel picture???

Let's see, I have in the possibles bag:

Fling and steel
Small wet and diamond stone
Few extra knives
Plastic bag
Super glue (gel)
Extra bow string
TP without the carboard core
Extra pair of socks
Deer towing rope
Latex gloves
A HD rope climbing thing a majig clip.

In the fall I will not take snacks since there are plenty of berries and muscadines.

In the winter I will throw in a cup and coffee.

H2O is carried in a wine bottle that has been wrapped in buffalo skin.

Oh yeh, a cell phone.  I know it's lame but I usually hunt by myself and it is a requirement from the little lady.

Mountain got it.
