The Don't forget list

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
