I have a compass in my pocket and it's tethered to my belt loop.

I have a bunch but I'll let other chime in. Ed

From: Predeter
08-Aug-19
After learning lessons the hard way, my puffy jacket and rain gear is ALWAYS in my pack. I can deal with about anything if I'm warm and dry.

Thats besides the obvious bow, arrows, knife, map, etc.

From: elkstabber

Water (or filter), phone with navigation app, kill kit, headlamp.

My bow, don't ask.

predator 2x....

Offhand, I’d say there’s probably 20 or so items inside my pack that I wouldn’t be without. No way I could narrow it down to just one “must have” item. Even missing one could make life miserable, especially when I get an elk down.

From: Mule Power
08-Aug-19
Several very important items require batteries so I’ll say extra batteries.

My Bugle, it's fastened to outside of my Exo Pack!

Water and puffy and a spare release. All my other essentials reside on my person, like knife, binocs, GPS, light, etc.

08-Aug-19
Water x 5

Down Vest/Space Rain Jacket

From: ohiohunter

Talk about overstating the obvious.

Hands down a$$ wipes! Nothing will ruin a day faster than not having them, I'd cry if I had to cut off a kuiu or sitka sleeve or a discontinued Core sock! Leuko tape would def be in my top 5 or so.

I carry a baseball for luck, as I love the game. It’s been with me every step of hunting season for many years. Won’t go without it.

From: Rut Nut

IN-REACH/ S.P.O.T.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Dyjack

Water, bow, and a puffy jacket.

Froze my ass off enough from forgetting a jacket that I hope it's fully beat into my head that it doesn't leave the pack.

From: 0hndycp

Wet Wipes/TP without a doubt!

08-Aug-19
my day pack.

Forgot....first aid stuff.

From: Solo

I carry a can of black pepper in my fanny pack to keep these late summer hoards of PNW yellow jackets from kickin' my butt and carrying off my downed game. Been told cayenne pepper works better, but it's too spicy for my taste.

From: JTV

Toilet paper !! ... a must have for the must use times !!

From: Glunt@work
08-Aug-19
I often do a morning or afternoon hunt with my bow and a knife.

From: Ambush
08-Aug-19
Cut the end off a paper towel roll with a fillet knife for toilet paper. Ordinary TP doesn’t cut it when your hands are cold or wet. Not a time for a breakthrough!!

And I always use non scented wipes, so I don’t smell like a baby in Pampers.

So many items I don’t leave camp without, hence a good day pack or back pack. Not talking tree stand hunting, as that’s not “real” hunting :)

Water x6, TP, and pocket survival kit.

From: TD

In the real world.... I've proven over and over there isn't anything on earth I won't forget.....

08-Aug-19
GPS and kill kit. For some reason I left my kill kit in the tent once thinking I wouldn't need it? I needed it.

From: Darrell

Day 1--Long list Day 3--Slightly shorter list Day 5 and beyond. Absolute bare necessities!

Bugle tube and diaphragm call. I can actually make cow calls quite good with my voice but haven't figured out how to bugle. Yet!

From: RonS
08-Aug-19
Water and GPS for sure.

From: Glunt@work

If I wake up and for some reason my day pack full of stuff is locked in a buddy's truck, dragged off by a bear, or otherwise not available. I'm still leaving camp and going hunting.

I was gonna say my bow but Scrappy beat me to it. But since you said don't ask Scrappy, I have to. What gives Scrappy?

Forget your knife...guaranteed way to tag out works every time

From: Z Barebow

My bow. Otherwise it is just a hiking trip.

In my pack, knife. Field dressing with a broadhead sucks. (Don't ask me how I know)

From: Owl
09-Aug-19
Anything? Pretty much everything. Not trying to be smart but the items in my pack are really relevant to the outing.

Now, let's say a scenario exists that I can't take a pack. I'm stuffing my pockets with a compass, fire makings, water purification tablets, water vessel of some description, emergency blanket, knife, cordage and my french press.

The survival kit my dad bought for my birthday. He woke up on his deathbed just long enough to tell mom he had ordered it off Amazon several weeks prior to him becoming ill. We found it an hour later where he had hid it.

Can eliminate bung fodder if you just adapt to a popcorn diet. All you need is a small wisk broom.
