Besides guns/bows, what are some must haves every time you go out on a hunt . Anything you discovered after years of hunting and wish you had found sooner?

Gun, bullets, and knife are the only necessities but I will use a thermacell and buddy heater from time to time

Cut your drawers off and use them if you forget the TP.

Used socks before, then t-shirt. Leave the underwear alone.

A pen or marker for your deer tag, ear muffs or ear plugs during rifle season. Those are 2 things that I've forgotten and regretted.

I carry a backpack with all kinds of stuff:

Binos, snacks, pee jug, water, phone, TP, knife, flashlight, rangefinder, thermacell, gloves,....I'm sure there's something I'm forgetting.
