Thought I'd post this and get the ball rolling. Don't forget to buy your liscense early or risk the ELS meltdown on your way out of town! Things to remember: gun, clip, ammo, orange hat and gloves, jacket, bibs, boots, knife, compass, scent/scent killer, long johns, wallet, food, drinks, snacks, tp for the cabin! Did I forget anything? Good luck out there, be safe!

Ryan, You forgot the kitchen sink....Man I hope you don't forget something, I don't know what you would do. Maybe you could build a cabin.

My list consists of my hunting box with all my sent free camo/orange, my treestand, gun, backpack full of ammo, doe pee, gateraid (later becomes the pee bottle), safety harness, long underwear, hand warmers grunt call, PBJ, Snicker bars, a 6 pack, and my deer licence. Everything else can either be found in my truck or I can go and buy it if I need it. No need to over complicate it. I like to forget my camera and knife, that way I am surely going to shoot something nice. It is like going fishing without a net, you will always have the best luck. One thing I have learned to bring extra of are gloves. I have lost more right handed gloves over the years. I imagine it is because I am taking my glove off to eat, gut a deer, whatever. I always lose the right glove though.

One extra thing to bring for sure are car keys. Give them to your buddy as soon as possible. You don't want to lose your car keys in the woods.

lol...I figured someone would like the post. I actually made this list for my elk hunting trip a few years ago. It was nice to have, but I did bring too much stuff with. Glad you enjoyed it...I was laughing just thinking about how much grief I was going to get.

I could see it on an elk trip, but man, you would need a semi to get all that gear out there.

Ryan, its actually helpful. I have been using a deluxe tent trailer that last couple of years and when I first got it, it needed to be seriously outfitted. Its pretty much where I want it this year with the addition of the $50 walmart microwave.

But regardless of the fact that your list is somewhat "comprehensive" (shall we say?). I copied and pasted it and now I can knock out the stuff I dont need and keep the stuff I do. It saves me a lot of work. Needless to say, the "pile" near the door and the "pile" in the garage has most of whats going up already but its great have a reference. There was one thing on there that I had forgot...the snow shovel!! Just curious, how many trucks did it take to haul all that stuff smile

It took a 4 door dodge (with a hemi) a topper on that and a LARGE car trailer with 4 ATVs on it with a old deep freeze for a meat cooler. I do have to admit that I deleted a bunch of stuff off that list to more suit deer hunting. Just a fyi- when going to the mountains don't forget the tire chains! Man I wish we would have remembered them.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • And yup, the BLM certainly was there....the fruitcakes, and the rest of mainstream America, even the voting llama's...  
    • Hillary catches Bill staring at Ivanka  
    • Nothing wrong with liking some of the ideas......being a full blown nut job libertarian is another.
    • I've never watched one of these parades before........... it's so weird. Some funny arse signs in the crowds. At least they could have had some clowns throwing candy to kids. It's not like there is a shortage of clowns in DC.
    • Always the Russians.....
    • Trump does not use the POTUS twitter ..   Who ever twittered it, was not trump.   Prolly the russians ??  
    • They changed it today to the Obama inauguration pic, then changed it to the US flag, then changed it a third time to the grainy potato-cam pic of Trump staring at squirrels........
