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.

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.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
