Hunting knife, headlamp, proper licenses, "Glen's Deer Handle" for pulling a deer out, camera, Gorilla camera tri-pod, field dressing gloves, bow hauling rope, compass, toilet paper for trailing a shot deer (and other purposes), and cell phone. Each year I think hard about "slimming down" my pack, but it never seems to get done.

Some of your haversacks must have wheels under them. How do you get all that stuff in them. [dunno]

Food, fire, water, shelter. Other than that it is personal choice. Granola bars / jerky / trail mix, matches & lighter or fire steel / flint / tinder, water purification tabs, emergency foil blanket. The last is useless for heat. It work great as a heat reflector or water proof layer in a shelter.

I would add 550 cord or light rope, knife / broadhead sharpener. Compass and cell phone or gps if close to town, only gps if out of cell service areas. Everything I carry is either oriented to survival, communications for survival, a method for finding my way, or something to deal with a kill.
