Doing a little research - what are some things that you always make sure you have going into deer season?

For me:

Can bleat call
Grunt call
razor blade knife for gutting
small t-handle saw for cutting thru bone
usually a bottle of Tink's #69
scent wicks and/or drag pad
small pair of binos
and my climber

Are you going to scare them to death or do you carry something to kill them with!!!

Also add water, rope and TP.

For a typically morning or afternoon hunt (4-5 hrs). Flashlight, knife, binos/strap, safety harness, and my phone. Add whatever weapon and ammo.

bow, gun, arrows or bullets, climber and safety harness (unless ground hunting), pocket knife (kept shaving sharp), phone, camera, something to eat/drink. Binocs are a plus but I didn't even have a pair last deer season. Sometimes I bring a homemade grunt call but don't feel much need to use it.

I also wish I would always bring rope for field dressing and hauling the deer out of the woods but I don't usually remember.

And the most important thing that nobody should ever forget.... TP!!

- gun/ ammo
- skinning knife
- 100ft paracord
- skatchet
- phone
- extra bottle of scent killer
- extra socks
- small first aid kit with superglue
- lighter and flint/ steel
- carry pistol and extra mag (simply because its always there)

pretty much it on me- all fits in a fanny pack other than my carry pistol. The fanny pack stays in the back of the truck year round. Blanket/ water/ snack bars, etc. are in the truck.
