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
