What equipment do you take?

Hello,

I am trying to obtain a survey of the type of equipment each and everyone takes with them to the field when hunting at long range distances. For this survey, we will only focus on "hunting" and not necessarily on target shooting. The reason I focus on hunting is because different equipment is required for a quick shot when shooting. I am interested in finding out what is the best combination of equipment to make a shot when it counts.

my list:

rifle & scope
custom reloads
shooter app in phone
range finder
binoculars
tripod for rangefinder/binos
knife
sometimes spotting scope


whats your list like?

    Lets see...

    eberlestock daypack
    camelback
    waterproof matches
    buck knife
    leatherman
    compass
    flashlight
    headlamp
    hot hands heaters
    Mittens and gloves(wear one set)
    deer drag
    Orange cap and hat (wear one)
    Extra layer rolled up to the bottom of the pack
    elk cow call (stops deer)
    Para cord
    tp
    alcohol wipes
    rubber gloves
    ziplock bag
    binos
    protein bars
    Gun
    rangefinder
    bipod
    ammo
    Probably more. I will have too look in my pack. Come to think of it, the pack is a little heavy. Slight variations if bow hunting(scentaway ) if I am hunting in an unknown area a GPS with ndtrax is on it.

    webbs gives a pretty complete list and is very close to mine. Being from AZ, I don't carry the cold weather gear, but I do carry a few more things for the desert. My fanny pack carries my emergency gear and first aid kit. Everything else is pretty much the same. Don't forget the license & permit (if required).
