So I've been looking at getting my bag together for hunting season and thought I would ask what items you guys like to take for a hunting trip or even a hiking trip. When I was a kid I was in an explorer group that did search and rescue and we would pack in somewhere and live out of our bags for the weekend. I used to have a checklist of what survival items to keep in my pack.now I'm trying to build my pack back up. Looking for survival items that are light weight. A few things I usually keep are: A ziplock bag of dryer lint. For fire starting A small plastic bottle of gas. For fire starting. Small road flare. Fire starting. Water chlorine tabs. Small mirror. Compass. Binos. Couple different sizes of knives. A handgun, couple extra mags, also carry full size on hip. Emergency blanket, tarp kind. Paracord at least 100ft. Boonie hat. Water proof matches. Map of area. Leatherman. Ace bandage, and splint. Small first aid kit, with small bottle of iodine or hydrogen peroxide. Chapstick. Extra pair of socks. MRE or freeze dried meal (2) A couple protein bars. Canteen of water. Anybody have any other tricks or special items they pack?
