I guess you could consider me a creature of habit when it comes to hunting and my gear assortment. Although I tend to mix up my pack selection, I also try to keep my essentials as uniform and consistent as possible. Moving my gear from hunt to hunt and pack to pack can make it very easy to forget something without a set base list that I always keep on hand no matter the situation. These are the kinds of things nearly 40 years of western big game hunting will haunt you with.
