A few things I take with me on a day hunt include: Tp paper (cant go with out!) Gut knife (pre sharpened) Chap stick, extra ammo, camera, munchies, lighter or matches, flashlight, walkie talkie, ear warmers, warm gloves, GPS, and hunter orange. If just going on a day hunt don't over pack your bag with needless things. But always carry just enough so if something bad happens and you need to spend the night on the mountain. Remember always think warm! Its hunting season, it gets cold at night and could snow. Also try and make sure you know where you are going and tell someone not at camp, so if need be someone can come find you. Think safety so you can bring home that big buck ^.^ Happy hunting!
