    An EXTRA battery for your range finder, and keep it on you. I had my range finder go out on a Wyoming Antelope hunt and would you beleive, it was the one time I left my pack in the truck. Big mistake, I needed it! The result was a missed long range shot, as my guess on distance was way off.

    In addition, Shawn Carlock's 1st video will give you some other good ideas.

    cosine indicator and anti cant device; DE make a really nice one.

    Pocket pc or pda for software, for exact dialing if it isn't in your phone.
