Lessee,knives,clothes,calls,scents,food,water,deer drag,ties,cord,t.p.,which ends up weighing a bunch.I usually end up leaving it in the truck and strapping on a knife and putting a couple bottles of water and some p-nut butter granola bars in my vest and travel light.............

Agree on tailoring for the season. Haven't seen anyone add screw in bowholder/s for hanging the bow, pack and quiver once on stand. I use a full harness and have substituted the flat nylon strap that goes between the harness and the one that goes around the tree with a 15ft. piece of black kevlar core mountain climbing rope (about 5000 lb test). It is long enough to go around most trees you can get a stand on, doubles for a drag rope and I've even used it to pull a buddy's car with. Otherwise for the bow season:

rangefinder
knife
license
extra shooting tab / release
thin rope for haul line
gloves
folding saw for clearing shooting lanes
small bottle of insect repellent
1 extra tube of camo paint
rain gear based on forecast- ALWAYS when hunting out west.
TP in a baggie
snack if hunting all day

This all fits in a medium sized fanny pack. I hat wearing a backpack during bow season. Always end up with a wet back on the way in.

Check everything on the bow at the end of the last practice session so I know everything's working before I head out. Emergency tool kit for adjustments / repairs stays in the truck.

Hope this helps.

Forgot- I always make the small cord I'm using for a haul line about 23 feet long. Tie it to one of the leg straps on your harness. If you're using a climbing stand, or strap on steps, when you get far enough up the tree that the haul line is just off the ground, stand height is right at 20 ft.

During rifle season I don't carry very much. Knife, matches, Flashlight, TP, ranger survival handbook.

During archery and Muzzlelaoder the dang thing is loaded with all kinds of junk plus the above listed items.

I got a new backpack. DGB says i now have a collection. This one carries the rifle on the back and 2 water bottles as well as hydration pack. Even has a little lite that comes on when you unzip the top.
