Seems like everytime I go out I forget something when I go out to do the rounds to check/fill feeders/game cams etc. and then I either have to drive back for it or do without it, or the dreaded "this will work" fix. So I just put a "new to me" toolbox on my ranch truck and trying to organize everything and make sure I have everything I need.

I'm gonna add to my list below as you guys post so that if we wanna look back at a nice list it'll all be at the top here..


Wasp spray
off (bug spray)
WD-40
Tow straps and chains/tie downs
Paracord
bundle of rope
rebar pieces/sledge hammer
tool bag with lots of hand tools/screwdrivers
roll of bailing wire
fencing pliers
bungee cords
12v tire inflator and repair kit
ax
machete
crescent wrench
lopers
hand saw
bar oil
premix
toilet paper
duct tape
work gloves
self tapping screws
tape measure
utility knife
empty feed sack or trash bag for trash or to plug up feeder if box removed
Bee, Pillow, and blanket
tow hitch (ball mount or hook)
come-a-long

electrical kit:

flash/head lights
digital multimeter
wire strippers/crimpers
gas soldering iron
electrical tape
butt connectors
spade terminals
small screwdrivers
heat shrink tubing
big and small tie straps
AA batteries
6v feeder batteries
spare sd cards
spot for extra game cameras
lighter
WIRE NUTS

What do you guys keep with you at all times?

at least 100 feet or two 50 foot sections
and a container of drinking water larger
than you normally carry on you.

Yalls definition of checking and filling feeders goes way beyond mine I guess I try to make minimum noise while doing this and get in and out... If a branch is down I will not move it unless its in the road and I can not drive around it... ill tend to it when season is over

I wasn't so much thinking of a toolbox just for checking feeders just some basic tools for around the ranch. To save the trips back and forth.

I like to have lopers cause I hunt the ground mostly and use branches to build blinds out of cedars. I like to be flexible but I usually only keep some basic tools with me.

For sure....at this point most everything is good to go. This is just so I (people reading the post) might get some ideas of what you guys have for general property maintainence so I can put it in there now instead of being out there and needing it...TP!!! good one!

I am not much on having everything, all of the time.
The bin in the Ranger is usually good for tie wire, pliers, channel locks.
If trimming trees, running traps, fixing/checking feeders, building a pen, fixing a fence etc. I take that stuff only as needed and get it out of the Ranger.
