Baseball batting gloves ( shooting), a warm pair of gloves, candy bars, orange hat (to swap out with the one i'm wearing if warm/or cold), a neck "gater" to block the wind, chap stick, 2 bottles of water, bird carrier, 1.5 box of NItro Mag 3" 4's, Copenhagen, usually a few limits of birds (since my dog picks up all for the group), neosporin or triple antibiotic ointment for dogs in case of cuts, sunglasses, yellow shooting glasses, dog leash, phone, Flip video, whistle, shock collar transmitter
I have my swiss knife and small wire clippers in case the pup gets in bard wire or a snare etc. If I'm in my california mountains ill have a lighter, powerbar, bear spray and maybe a few slugs in case of some big furry trouble.
Along with shells:
2 water bottles,vet wrap,phone,leatherman & pocket knife 9( in pants), chocolate bars,granola bars, energy sticks for the dogs, clip on compass, cheap choke wrench, small 1st aid kit in a fabric pouch with gauze pads, band aids, extra gloves if it is wet, and a couple of loads of buck shot for yotes, raccoons and skunks.
Might have a few mre thing along depending on the weather. We can end up a mile or more from the trucks and it pays to carry a bit extra in case of emergency.
Never trust a dog to watch your food!
Shells, a quart canteen and a collapsible cordura nylon bowl. I carry a Leatherman Tool and a pair of diagonal cutters. I find the "dikes" are best for pulling cactus from the dog and me. I hunt in Baja California so we may be shooting pheasant, quail and dove on the same hunt. I keep the 7 1/2's on one side of the vest and the 6's on the other.
After the Ammo, collar and leash, e-collar and some water, Something to use as Toilet paper, I prefer paper towels.
Thats it, unless I am planing a "walkabout", then,depending on where when and how far, a couple of candy bars, small colapsable container some iodine tablets, a compass, waterproof matches, some twine, and a small multi pourpose cutting digging tool may be added to the list...
Did I say toilet paper
