Default What's in your Daypack/Backpack?

Hey All, I've been out of Big Game hunting since I moved to AZ 15 years ago...well...I put in and got drawn for a cow elk this year...I'm gun hunting this year and gonna switch back to archery for next year. I'm just wondering what is in everyone's Daypack/Backpack??? I have 2+ knives, game bags, water, snacks, first aid kit, flashlight, fire starter, space blanket. What else am I missing...what are your "must haves"? Thanks!!!

Badlands Pack are my numero uno. I have the Monster fanny pack and the whitetail backpack and both carry great and have pockets galore.

Extra socks! Keep your feet dry and comfortable. It's amazing how a fresh pair of socks makes you feel a WHOLE lot better! Take care of your feet and they'll take care of you.

If I'm going into an area that I'm not completely firmiliar with I always carry my GPS. It doesn't take very long to get turned around if you're tracking an animal after dark.

I'm surprised no one has TP with them! It can be used for more than it's intended purpose.
