You would find that a fair percentage of bush hunters dont hunt with a sling
Yeah me included, no sling means your shooter's where it should be - in your hands. However I do use a scabbard pack for carrying the rifle when climbing and walking where I can't be shooting. cheers

I haven't been able to find the orange tube survival bag for a while now (not the pack liner one). Where do you get yours from?

Insect repellant is another essential for me, depends on where you hunt.

Orange survival bag is bloody heavy.   You might be better off with a poncho / tarp combination for an emergency shelter.

I carry a insect head net and gloves as part of my standard kit.  Makes sitting still waiting for deer much easier.  I can't ignore the little buggers even with repellent on.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine. Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

Guys,

Does anyone remember the light weight thin plastic orange survival tube? Not the thick plastic, heavy one. It came pre-packed and was about a 4x4 inch square 1/2 an inch thick. Was very light and would easily fit in a jacket pocket.

These where great, but haven't seen one in a shop for years. If someone knows who still has these, please let me know.

Cheers.

Check with The Mountain Safety Council, I think they are blue now and they often give them away.

Nimrod-great writeup.see you got the good old messtins.if blokes keep eyes peeled or are near mil surplus store,pick up an ex yank water bottle.,one that sits in its own cups canteen.In my  TF time you could actually cook a feed of noodles in cup then either drinkthe water as soup or use it for a cuppa.wee bit strange the taste but good if ya wet and shagged.Otherwise ,get a mate who homebrews.those brewmix tins with a wire handle make good wee billy and your gas stove should fit inside.

A suggestion instead of Berrocca for the boost of energy. I use an organic vitamin called Rhodiola which is rocket fuel and much lighter to carry. Two tablets max. per day will keep you going all day AND HALF WAY THROUGH THE NIGHT! Wink
