Since one day normally turns into a three day deal, I take everything I might need. The rig is loaded with its stuff; comealong, rope, muletape, chains. Rope winch, coupla knives,sharpening stones, coupla boxes of shells, dry socks, coupla days of food, coupla gallons of water, extra rifle, extra clothes, coveralls. Then in my daypack I have just my stuff for the hunt; box of juice, sandwich, knives, socks, gloves, shells, flagging, space blanket, box camera, fire starting stuff.

Let's see..for a gun hunt, I carry a pair of binos, and a GPS and a compass. In my butt pack are a couple of knives, first aid kit, two bottles of water, snacks, kerchief, camera, small sharpening stone, and extra batteries. I also carry a rifle and a bullet.
I almost forgot to mention an indespensable item. Baby wipes. I carry a 25 tissue pack of baby wipes. Comes in handy for cleaning hands after gutting an animal and for cleaning a butt after taking a dump.
