    backpack, tent/bivy, sleeping bag, flashlight or headlamp, cooking stove, cooking fuel, cooking pot, knife, range finder, bino's, spotting scope, jacket/rain gear, rope, watch, TP, mole skin, GPS(if you've got it), water bladder, iodine tablets, E-mergen-C drink flavor(personal preference), 5 days of food, small first aid kit, personal hygiene stuff, tag, license, extra equipment needed (nocks, D-loop, ammo, etc depending on how you're hunting) extra socks, underwear, map, compass, camera. Thats a lot of the basics. I'm sure I missed some stuff. Hope this is a good start.

    The above list has everything covered. I would throw in a space blanket and fire starter just in case you don't make it back to your camp.

    And maybe spare flashlight and batteries.

    i know it was mentioned, but.....make sure you have a good GPS! It will save your life if you get lost or fogged in or cant get back because it is too dark. ive been in the back country for 26 years now and nothing has gotten me out of bad situations better than keeping my mind straight and having a GPS. Also..ive spent the night out with a space blanket or a fire. it saved my life, but since i bought and learned how to used my GPS....ive NEVER not gotten back to camp.

    to me not all GPS are the same. i like the ones that you can actually download satilite images on and actually see where you are on the map, not just a line and where you have to go (this also helps you keep a clear head if you feel yourself panicking because you think you might be getting lost). i have navigated miles in the dark with my psn 40, just because i could see where to go and see if i could skirt timber or hills or lakes or see a short cut that i did not take earlier in the day.

    not only can it save your life, it will also give you a little more confidence to get back a little further into the dark holes that maybe you weren't sure about because you weren't sure about getting back to camp.

    Good point GrantMan. I think I forgot to add a lighter of some kind. I try to keep my pack between 55 and 65 lbs depending on the hunt location and time of year. (before adding heads or meat) and thats not counting the weight of my bow/arrow rig, rangefinder(on my belt), binos (around my neck) and my release(around my wrist).

    How much do your packs usually weigh before you add heads and meat etc?

    Excellent post wileywapiti you answered my next post and made some great points about the GPS giving you confidence to push harder. I've thought of buying a GPS and was a little worried one time when I was DIY bow hunting the North Dakota Badlands. It's easy to get caught up and chase that animal a little farther than expected. Lucky for me their are some buttes that rise higher than the rest and make good land marks. It saved me from a chilly night! But there is no doubt I'd have a GPS where you hunt. Also thanks twp.1224 for the gear list PM exactly what I was looking for.

    A GPS is great I don't leave home without one, however there is no guarantee that it will work when you need it to the most. If you get bogged down in heavy timber and need directions a good topo and compass will replace a GPS in a hurry. The only other thing I can add is Pop Tarts, how can anyone go into the backcountry overnight without Pop Tarts? In all reality it's good to have some comfort food with you whatever it is.
