Here's what I carry in the pack that gets used *after* the trigger is pulled. * Three small but bright flashlights. One with lots of black-tape wrapped around it. * Several writing pen. One with duct-tape wrapped around it. * Tags and tie-wraps for affixing them to the inside of a deer's ear. I cut two vertical slits in the ear and tie-wrap tag inside. Then tape the ear shut. * Trusty Buck110 folding knife. Razor sharp. * Six reflective tracking clothes pins. Red on one side and white on the other. * Several pairs of field-dressing gloves * gallon-sized plastic bags for heart, liver, and kidneys. * 30feet of 400lb breaking strength camo rope. I haul deer up in a tree to gut it. Saves my back and keeps tenders clean. * toilet paper or paper napkins in a baggie - good for marking small spots of blood, or taking a dump on a long track. * (not shown) Hunting license. Making some clip-on trail-markers for tracking at night. Hoooneeeeeey! Where'd all the clothes pins go? Adhesive-backed reflective tape from auto-parts store. Red on one side and white on the other. Red leads to the deer and white back to the stand.
