    Anyone have any good ideas or tricks as far as packing duct tape? Do you just carry a roll or?

    yes i sure do. My trick is taking a permanent marker (to mark tag) i take the duct tape and rip it in half down center line to make about 1" thick. then i wrap the permanent marker with two or three spots to get about four feet of 1" duct tape. and some flagging on the same marker. so you get a marker couple feet of duct tape and a quite a bit of flagging. one stone. s*** ton of birds

    I take a small stick and wrap a bunch of it around it so I don't have to haul around the whole thing. Works great for taping up your feet so you don't get blisters.

    If you're using a water bottle, wrap it around the bottle.

    One other trick is use a medicine bottle for a survival kit, hygene, or tool kit or anything else for that matter and use the same idea as the pen. This year at bass pro the sold backpacker size rolls of duct tape in 4' lengths i just threw 2 of them in my pack they were bout the size of a pen. Ended up commin in handy with hot spots on my heels

    Try a lighter, if you carry one. You can wrap about 3 feet of duct tape around your lighter without it effecting your ability to spark it.

    I just wrap mine around a piece of cardboard. And I put my electrical tape around my flashlight, and around a lighter.
