Talking one thing only......

other than my bow, arrows, release. My bow holster, connected to my pistola belt. When I shoot one, I use the time to wait by going back to get my field dressing equipment and anything I need to get the animal back. Don't use a flashlight to and from my stands. Don't move while I'm in my stands.

Gps got my bud and i out of the woods after tracking a gut shot deer for 2 hours in the dark... in a driving snow storm....

first aid kit with duct tape saved a weekend in the adk mountains when i cut my hand sawing a piece of wood.

baby wipes make it nice to clean up after field dressing a deer... just look for the unscented ones.
