What Gear I Have in My Archery Hunting Day Pack

Still counting down the days until the big game archery opener in Montana. I am now slowly digging last year’s gear out of the storage unit. One of my preparation goals is to empty my day pack and re-packing it with fresh trail mix and gear.

What is in my pack:

2 knives – because one always ends up getting dull from carving my name in trees and from cutting up lunch.

A lighter – essential to anyone who plans on getting out of the truck

Water – keeping hydrated makes hiking a lot easier

A saw – because trying to split a brisket with a knife isn’t always the easiest thing

Trail mix or jerky – fuel the machine carrying you around the mountain

Extra clothing for layer – fall means cold in the morning and warm by lunch. Layer clothing to regulate body heat.

Calls – I carry 3 different cow talks and one bugle (reeds take up less room but require a little skill to use)

Wind direction powder – knowing the wind direction could mean the difference between getting a shot or going home empty handed.

Binoculars – because knowing is half the battle
