Beside the normal stuff, I also pack a small vintage aluminum omelet maker. This also doubles as a bisquit oven. On the outside of my bag, I strap on a portable propane heater which also doubles as a cook stove. Inside my bag, I pack a small carton of liquid scrambled eggs, pkg of hash browns and duck breakfast sausage which all goes into the omelet mixed together plus I take along a tube of bisquit dough. I cook the bisquits first and store in a ziplock hot/cold bag to keep them warm while cooking the omelets. I also pack a jar of plumb jelly which tops it off. Also inside my bag, I pack a small extra propane bottle for the heater/stove. Last but not least, a pair of clear ATV goggles for wind in your face days. They fit right over my eye glasses and a half dozen pairs of brown jersey gloves with a fold up pvc pancho. On good days, there isnt time to be cooking but can make a slow day special.

I mostly hunt in a permanant blind. This sort of stuff is not so easy to do when hunting from a boat.

It depends. If I am hunting in my boat, my boat has sealed rod boxes on each side, so I keep emergency equipment in those all the time, ie, flares, emergency kit, extra lights/batteries, tool kit, quick-start, seafoam, oil, grease gun , etc. etc., as well as a lighter, fuzees, tinder, etc for making a fire, and a can of sterno , which could be used in the boat if we get stuck somewhere out in the cold. Also TP and Kleenex and bottled water .

My personal bag is this: Image

and I have them in several sizes, depending on application. If I am field hunting, close to my vehicle, I leave my emergency kit etc in the vehicle. I do carry my small size blind box with 1 or maybe 2 boxes of shells (snow geese even 3), a bottle of water or pop, lanyard, calls, facemask, flashlight, and cellphone/SPOT satellite communication device. About 80% of my hunts are outside cell service range, and if I am by myself, I always have the SPOT communicator with me for emergency. I will carry chemical handwarmers for late season and some extra dry gloves (thin cheap ones that allow me good feel but keep the chill off).

If I am hunting in someone else's boat, I have a bigger box, and will have some emergency equipment in there as well as some ski goggles (trust me, they work on the water in cold weather), extra toque (dry), and big mitts for keeping warm. Always carry 2 gps's with me. Rino and a smaller spare unit with batteries. I can go into some spots that have tiny entrances and it is easy to get turned around or lost in some of the marshes, so it is a must, as is the backup, unless you like spending the night under the stars in late October.

2x 4ft 3/4" emc, mud walking poles and blind building supports
6 to 8 mallard decoys
6 teal decoys on a jerk rig, 35 yards string for ranging.
mojo pole, anchors jerk rig, serves as walking pole too
baby mojo, remote control, sometimes 2
4x plastic spring-clamps, for blind building, camo painted
extendable golf-ball retriever w/ pool noodle taped over handle (floats), 15ft duck/decoy retriever, collapses to 3.5ft, camoed


camo bucket with screw-on waterproof lid: seat and blind bag. Can fit on top of decoys.
Toilet paper in plastic bag
5 or so plastic walmart bags, for turning camo bucket into crapper etc.
2x box ammo, #2 and #3
ammo belt / wader belt, with #4 or #6 HW13 loads for geese
binoculars
2x water bottle
bag of trail mix/gorp
several granola bars
hand snipper/trimmers for building blinds etc
duck strap
30yds para cord or jerk cord
lighter

Jacket, waterproof duck camo, with stuff in zipping pockets:
Duck calls on lanyard
decoy gloves, neoprene
light camo gloves
face mask
duck hat
bug spray
ziploc for shells
neck gaiter

ear plugs
clear waterproof neck pouch for phone, wallet, license in wallet

printed land ownership papers showing access rights or various rules for where I'm hunting in ziploc

Just wear a poly fleece to walk in, everything else (decoys, bucket seat w/ gear, jacket w/ gear) stuffs into backpack/duffle-bag for transport. Gun goes in a waterproof case over top, and I use 2 of poles to walk thru mud.

I sometimes have a kid with me, in which case I probably have hats/gloves/mask/shells for him too.

In addition to everything that has been listed already, I have the plastic case from electrical tape full of fuses for the boat. Bug spray was added last season after hunting in 80 degree temps. Also a pair of rain bibs and coat. Pen and paper. A few extra ziplock bags.

When my crew hunts its for the day. There is nothing better than a hot bowl of duck chili or duck stew (also in my blind bag) on a cold November day. Propane, stove and a big pot, bowls and spoons are in a 20 gallon tote. I've had many great days AFTER other rigs have been picked up and the bay is left to me.

Here's a tip; Use the plastic coffee containers as shell boxes. I spray paint mine and it stays on the table next to me in the boat for easy access, one for the good shells and one with cheap junk to dispatch the occasional cripple. Shells stay dry too.

Most everything has been already mentioned but I used to put a

portable battery powered television

in my 2nd blind bag. This is hunting out of a boat. It's about the size of a loaf of bread. TV is powered by 8 D cells. Watched alot of football on Sundays with that.

Because I wear contact lenses (now for over 50 years). I carry a small mirror. If I get some seeds or junk in my eye I'd rather try to take it out directly than to take out a contact lense and risk loosing one. Oh yeah, I also carry a cigar case with one cigar, lighter, and cutter.
