I have the luxury of deer hunting close to home. In most cases it's only a 10min ATV ride to my back door, therefore I have never been one to pack my pockets with a bunch of luxury items. Gun, knife, ammo, permit. Lately my boys and I have been reaping the benefits of staying in the stand or blind all day. So I have added to my pockets and game pouch Binos Snacks/lunch Book or tablet Rangefinder if bowhunting Xbow cocking cord Coffee Phone battery pack/cord Etc. Edit to add some stuff I forgot...: Bic lighter Surveyor's tape to mark blood trails or stands Permanent marker Compass on coat zipper. Zip ties 2 flashlights I think I will empty my pockets and put it in a pack like my boys do. Maybe an old dog can learn some new tricks after all. What's in your pockets or pack for an all day big game hunt?
