Camera w/extra set of batt.'s
Extra parachute cord (handy if you lose pull rope, attaching tags, etc.)
Small bottle of scent killer spray (thanks Ducsauce for the directions on homemade stuff)
Small survival kit (a little bigger than an Altoids tin)
A few Zip Ties and a little Duct tape - ya never know
