I have searched but I did not find the topic like that.

What gear do you wear, take with you, on the hunt? We may include stuff you have physically with you in the woods + stuff in the car.

I recall a post like this some years back. But I have simplified a lot sense then.
Now I will grab a drink, binos, ear plugs and rifle and head out the door.
I always carry a pocket knife, my phone and wallet, so flashlight and license is covered.

Hate to revive an old thread, but I always carry a small spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide. When tracking a wounded animal and you can't tell if it's blood, a squirt or two will let you know real quick. If it's blood it'll foam and turn white.

With respect, I think it is a terrible idea to rely on your phone for illumination. If you get in a jamb you might drain your primary communications device unnecessarily. I always recommend taking at least one flashlight with you (preferably two) if you are going to be out in the wild with the chance you might be out past sunset.

The only thing I can add is orange flagging tape in case tracking is involved.

Years of hunting have taught me to take as little as necessary. A rifle+ammo, a pistol+ammo, binoculars, range finders, water, snack and cell phone. If I hunt all day, I will take a sandwich or two.
