I carried an inflatable male love doll in my day pack for about a month last year.

I was gonna strap him into my buddy's tree stand and give him a little anatomically correct pre-daylight surprise;). Unfortunately, my buddy moved his stand and I never did find it.

I finally figured I'd best get rid of ol' Blow-Up Buddy before one of my pals went diggin' through my day pack. I'd have had a hard time explaining that one:).

Yes Baby wipes. A bath in a box. Don't leave home with out them.  "[laffsmyl]"
I try not to let my mind wander...It is too small and fragile to be out by itself.

Not sure I want to try to explain condom purchases to my tube-tied wife, so I'll suggest a "safer" alternative to Jerry's cure for wet fletching: latex baby bottle inserts.  Works pretty good for 2 blades; just insert the broadhead into the mouth of the insert, pushing it through the bottom, and slide the insert down the shaft 'til it covers the fletching.  Stays put if you're not moving too much.  When hunting in the rain, my back quiver is covered with a treated polarfleece hood, and the arrow in a homemade "solo stalker" wears the insert.

It's not in my bag, but I use a walking stick a lot, Not because I can't walk, but it is amazing how handy it is. I use it to hold a fence wire down as I cross, so I don't leave scent, It also is handy for pushing brush aside from the trail for the same reason. Lastly my area is a bit swampy and it can be anything from dry to thigh deep water, with boggy bottom full of cow tracks. Now it comes in handy walking, to pick and choose as well as help balance as I pull one foot or the other out of the mud. A zip lock or two is handy, can be used as a make shift glove, hold and carry small items, and for that old emergency container for when Mother Nature calls.

Pruning shears. Great for snippng tinder to start the fire, snipping off irritating brush under the tent, clearing a shooting lane from a stand; lot's less work than a hatchet.
Jack Howard claimed that he could remove unwanted twigs as he was stalking with a pair of anvil pruners   ;)  ... I believe him.

In place of the tooth brush I always have in my tackle box a wire brush that is the same size as a tooth brush.  You can find them in the gun section of your sporting goods store.  It is great for removing dried mud from your broad heads and judos.

I'm like Hawkwind the later in the season the less I carry.  By the time I need something I have nothing.    :(

Joe, A lot of times I'll get cracks in my skin of my fingers when it's dry.  When I'm at home I use lotion, but not when I'm hunting. I put the super glue on the crack to keep it from getting worse. I also use it if I have any minor cuts.  Works better than a band-aid.

I always carry a small four prong grappling hook made from electrical wire when i sit a tree stand,if you drop something hook it to your pull up rope and there you go.
