I leave in less than two weeks for my first ever bear hunt.

I've gone through my stuff several times trying to keep it light but not miss anything.

Not counting the bow, arrows, release I have the following in my Gut Hook fanny pack:

Range finder
Binos
Two flashlights w/extra batteries
Bow hook
Dead Down Wind field spray & wipes
Thermacell w/plenty of pads
hoist rope
Bow hanger
Rain gear
video camera mount
Video camera
Still camera
First aid kit
Waterproof matches

Also on my belt I'll have a knife and either a .357 or .40 at the recommendation of the outfitter. I'm leaning towards the .357 since it's smaller.

We don't need to do that anymore. We can call it in or internet register the kill... The tags with the pre-printed numbers just need to be attached to the animal and the accompanying license needs to be on you...

The only issue is that the tags used to have neat adhesive strips that you could stick around the leg/antlers. Now you need to bring some tape or string and attach the thing...

Argghhhh....

Yep, we're putting stands out this weekend and it's buy time...

I need to get some new ratchet straps and a bunch of new bolts to replace stand bolts that are not looking good. Getting snack food stuff for the backpack too. That stuff is not cheap anymore either. I used to live on Hunt's Snack Pack in the timber. Now it costs so much that it's easier on the pocketboook to have wings at Hooters than buy that stuff...

Also need new boots. GM has a sale going on with footwear right now so I'll probably head out and pay yet another $100+ for boots that last a year at best... Tired of paying those kind of bucks and not getting the life out of them. Heck, it's not like I drive the flintstones mobile where I need to use my feet to stop...

And, I need to go to the range to figure out why the Allegiance is not shooting right. I put new string and cables on it about a month ago and it's not been the same. I shot the first 2 weeks of 3d-shoot 5-spot with it and it's just not right. We have a month to go so I'm not concerned... Looking forward to napping mid-day in the stand and killing Bambi at sundown... I love the late afternoon as opposed to morning. Makes my day...

Hey Ronhop, you should just go get a good pair of boots, what do you do to wear them out in 1 season? My boots are the almost the most important thing, (othern then bow) for hunting. Igot a set of danner trophys, on my third year hunting with them and their still like near new, I treat them several times a year though. And i do also only use them for hunting, but they get lots of miles logged on them for sure. Im not a fan of sore blisterd feet after a good day of hunting.

Its a fiar load, but when your elk hunting in mt and start at 4 am and get back to the truck at 10 pm, you need lots of stuff. The pack is the easy work, the hard work is packing all the meat (sometimes) several miles back to the truck in 85+ deg weather with out letting it go bad and keeping it clean. A big bull will take 2 guys 3 trips to get out, and thats after its boned out, just the meat only and the head. so if your 1.5 miles out, your looking at 12 miles to get it all out.
