Man, youse guys must do some serious backcountry adventure hunting to pack all this stuff “just in case.” My motto for life has been “go as light as possible” and it sure applies to hunting. Reliable fire starter (bic and waterproof stick matches), rain gear even when the sky is clear (I’ve been to hypothermia-ville and don’t wish to return), two headlamps and a very basic and tiny first aid kit is it for me … plus about 20 pounds of game-handling gear, extra clothing and all the other stuff you have to have not just in case but guaranteed. If someday they find me out there dead, well, at this point I the game it sure beats dementia (no comments, please). 😆
