Does anybody use a gear list on what to bring for a hunting trip? Even a list of things to bring with you for a one day hunt?

  • Does anybody use a gear list on what to bring for a hunting trip? Even a list of things to bring with you for a one day hunt?

    When I pulled my T/C Encore out of the gun case for my opening day black powder hunt I realized I forgot my gun sling. I had to make a sling out of a strong string from my misc. bag.

    A what?

    Ah yes, a gear list. Yes I often use lists, made myself or off the internet, to prepare for fishing/camping etc. Somehow I still manage to forget things.

      Henry, you are correct so I edit the question so it's easier to understand. Thanks +1
      I need a list to remind me. Thirty years ago, my little brother hunted in his sneakers because he forgot his hunting boots. There was also one inch of snow on the ground. His feet were cold that day. Big Mistake.
      My cousin forgot his sleeping bag for a three day weekend of hunting and camping out in tents. Another Blunder.

          they completely shut down the sites while they were cleaning the spam. that was a massive, automated attack, hope it does not happen again.

            Jimbo, automated attack? That makes sense. I was thinking it was group of people doing the spamming but it was coming in more officiant.

              It depends.
              On a day to day basis, no, but mostly because I keep my backpack packed and ready to go with everything I'll need on an early season archery hunt and I get showered and dressed, grab my pack and my bow (and I keep my release attached to my bow), and I'm out the door. Snacks and water bottle are the only thing that really get checked and refreshed. All of the odds and ends that go into my pockets are in my pockets every day so no change in routine there.
              In colder weather I'll put more time into thinking it through and making sure layers and handwarmers and such are present and in good shape. This sometimes goes against a checklist.
              If I'm heading out rifle hunting, particularly to camp which is hours away, I go back to an all inclusive checklist which gets down to the level of AMMUNITION!

                I generally leave a backback filled 24/7/365 with all the basic gear I would need during a hunt. This works great for my current bowhunting, since I generally hunt for an hour or two every morning before work. Throw on some camo, put on my backpack, and pick up my bow and I'm ready to go. No time wasted. As for an actual gear list, no. Not unless I will be hunting for an extended period. I generally hunt on private property, so forgetting something is nothing more than a little extra exercise to walk back to the house.

                  I'll make a list for a camping trip, and have before for hunting and fishing, but this year I've just been making a pile on the table in my den. Leading up to opening day, I just go in there whenever I think of something, find the item on the shelves or wherever it is, and add it to the pile. Right now, for example, with fall turkey opening on Saturday, I've got a little pile going with: Turkey tag; pen; zip-ties; orange bandanna (for safety during the carry-out); box of fives; my full-choke tube and choke wrench; and two Paydays (yum). I only use diaphragm calls in the fall and they're already in the zipper pocket of my camo shirt-jac. Now that I'm thinking of it, I realize I have to find my camo neck gaiter/face mask, and also grab a zip-lock bag out of the kitchen drawer (for the heart and giblets). So I kind of have a running list going in part of my head all the time. I'd be more apt to forget something if I made a deliberate effort to write it all out.

                    Hah, I didn't even notice your comment before posting mine. Funny how similar our answers were.

                        Not only do I use them, I keep them and have for fifty years. It takes me about an hour to pack and my duffle, carry on and rifle case are packed in order so I know where everything is located. Do not recall forgetting anything or wishing I had brought something in ages. Curse of being well organized.

                          I keep a book for camp with things I need to bring as most my hunting things are there. I also check the book for supply items, tools, material or other things camp needs.
