I take a knife, extra box of ammo, 2 cigarette lighters and 2 packs of cigs, and usually some drinking water and a compass if I am hunting a large new area. I travel light. For squirrel hunting I bought a great light weight item, a belt- on air adjustable filled sitting camoed cushion that is waterproof.  You just sit down anywhere you like, and your hiney stays dry and comfortable. You ever sit down in the timber and then suddenly feel your south end wet and cold,  :shock: :-[and your wet clothes sticking to your butt? YUK!

Let's see........for different critters, I take different things.........

Squirrels: .17 HMR, cartriges, knife, Gerber multitool, flashlight, TP, and bandana.  Warm weather, I take a little bottle of mosquito repellant.  Since the stick incident, safety glasses.

Turkeys:  Shotgun, shells, turkey vest, 4-5 mouth diaphram calls, box call, glass call, push-button call, binoculars, extra gloves, rain jacket, knife, Gerber multitool, flashlight, TP, and bandana.

Deer:  Weapon(s) of choice and ammo for it, knife, Gerber multitool, flashlight, turkey call (diaphram), grunt call, bleat call, Tylenol, extra flashlight, extra AA batteries, TP, limb saw, 550 cord, first aid kit, canteen, thermos (if really cold), hand warmers, screw-in bow hangers, binoculars, peanut butter crackers, jerkey, energy bars, full body harness (if hunting from tree stand), inflatable seat, extra gloves, rain jacket, bandana, and extra assorted clothes, depending upon the weather.

Ducks, geese, doves, rabbits, etc. all dictate what I take also.
The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I also carry a LED Garrity key chain light, very bright, very small, and lasts for hours, and my Leatherman multi tool, of which I also carry 24/7.

Depending on where I go and what I am hunting I have a day hunting pack that holds:

2 water bottles
heavy duty leather gloves(necessity for deep South Texas brush country)
compass and GPS(Hey...sometimes I can't get a damn signal on the thing! That's why I take a compass too!)
cell phone
toilet paper
2 pair disposable gloves
1 surgical knife with replaceable blades(makes field dressing very easy and quicker than a regular knife, CHEAP!!!)
extra blades
digital camera
small first aid kit
small flashlight
extra set of batteries(pack of 8 for camera and flashlight)
matches or lighter
100' nylon cord
packable rain suit(depends on how long and if rain is expected)
2 or three snack bars of some sort.
small folding saw
knife sharpener
binocular lens cleaning brush

All that and I'm good to go.  The kitchen sink I will leave back at camp! :D

My wife will say the same thing.  And for me its not hard or rare for it to turn into both hunting and camping from a 1 day hunt to the entire weekend.

Going back to the cabin is for the woosies anyways! :)

Maybe a scotch egg or two for breakfast.........its generaly easier to carry one of them than a bowl of grits in your pocket.......course you could line your pockets  with newspaper. :shock: :sad:
ECCLESIASTES 12:13-14 Now all has been heard;here is the conclusion of the matter:Fear God and keep his commandments,for this is the whole duty of man.For God will bring every deed into judgement,including every hidden thing,wheather it is good or evil.
