Re: What do you carry when you scout?

I almost always have my Alice pack with me. It has my normal hunting gear lights, batteries, garbage bags, rope, knife, water, & tp. Really the only thing that is a must have when scouting is my iphone because it's also my gps. I carry my pack as a just incase type deal. For example - if I need to cross a creek I have my garbage bag waders or if I find a shed I can put it in my pack.

I travel light. Usually just some water, snacks if I'm planning a big hike. GPS, usually take the video camera as well, never know if I'll see or find something interesting. The one thing I always take is my rangefinder. That way if I find a spot I want to set up I can range a tree to get in.

- Camelbak full of water.
- Protein Bar or two.
- Compass.
- Car GPS which has a walking mode and topo just to mark off hot spots/sign. I then go home and draw the spots on a topo printout.
- old Ski pole as a hiking stick
- Bear spray (Funny thing is I never ever used to think about bears or cared, until I started trying to hunt them! Now they are on my mind each time out lol)
- Action camera to make boring scouting vids Razz
- My phone is useless where I go, no service. If I get lucky I might get a bar at the very top of the mountains, not consistently.

Not much! Usually just my GPS and some TP!

A little food, lots of water, my gps, a compass (in case gps craps out) and a little notebook to write notes about what I find.

Maps, paper and pen to draw more maps, zip ties to build ground blinds - and never enough water it seems.
