    Tell me / show me the most useful thing you always take with you when hunting.

    OK fellow forum members I am intrigued to learn what is the most useful thing outside of the obvious that you always take with you on a hunt trip. I am not looking for you to tell me about your rifles, ammunition, knives, maps, compasses, tent, sleeping bags, GPS', torches, lighters, first aid kit, etc etc. I am looking for that interesting indispensable widget / gizmo / thing that you have (that you may have even made yourself) that you treasure for its usefulness.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    True Phillip. I refer to you as the MultiPhil because you have so many uses.

    Took the words right outta my mouth VC.
    The number of useful things you can do with insulation tape is almost limitless .... it even acts as a fire starter if your stuck in an emergency.

    Cheers

    Sitting height Shooting Sticks for anywhere I might be shooting >100, and sometimes for closer shots too. Much more versatile than a bipod, especially great for making steep uphill and downhill shots or shooting amidst long grass and scrub.

    Can be a little more sensitive to body position or recoil in some cases, but still my preferred field rest.

    That shit was currency in the army. I bought it by the box, still very handy. Cloth tape was pretty good too but I don't take that hunting, it stays in the wagon.

    I always make sure I have a safety pin in my emergency kit, handy for digging stuff out of your hands and has been used by a fat bastard(me) to hold my pants up after busting a button!
