depends on how long im hunting....sometimes i take nothing but a knife rope and bullets...but if im going to be hunting long and back in the woods a good ways ill take a knife for gutting....my leatherman wave...it will do anything..fix my gun...clean game if i loose or break my other knife...cut down small limbs and saplings..help me survive if i have too...rope to drag....and it will be nice if i have to build a shelter because im just that lost......extra ammo.....matches and a lighter...something to eat and alot of water.....a compass if im going into a place i dont know...but rarely do i hunt a place i dont know..i usually scout it first and thats when i use the compass....i think thats about all i carry.....and with what i have i know i can spend the night in the woods easily.....and even though i will never use 10 rounds of ammo in one hunting trip i started to carry atleast 10....if im in a survival situation it will come in handy.....as you can tell im into the whole survival thing....i rather be safe then sorry.....and when im hunting i am very comfortable...i dress appropriatly and eat and drink when i want...i try not to make much noiseand i will beable to sit there longer and see more game instead of leaving the woods....your pack should fit your style...when i am not hunting all day just for a morning or just for an after school hunt or something i wont take food and not so much water....

No one answer can be given for this subject. Every hunting trip for different people is going to be just as different as where they hunt. I hunt my own land. I don' t use a fanny pack, just pockets. A knife, snack, TP in a sandwich bag, wrist watch. My gun, ammo, sometimes my binoculars. Don' t even carry water, sometimes a diet cola. I' m usually full of coffee before I leave the house. 3 spaced shots and my wife has the neighborhood looking for me. I carry a .35 Whelen and it has a sound like no other rifle near my area. But for someone hunting big timber (maybe I should say forest), a whole different story.

I hunt close to home ,for sometimes 10 hours, Lots of food and water. I found pizza,stromboli, and italian sandwichs are good for a 10 hour sit. A knife and a tractor to drag it up the road.
