    What is the most important thing to bring on a pack in hunting trip besides your rifle?

    I have 125 pounds max to take with me for a 9 day trip.  I think the obviouse things like my rifle, ammunition, optics, etc. are easy to identify, but what are some things that I might forget?

    I'm into dehydrated food, so I'm pretty good there.  I'm going to try to dehydrayte some more soups, I have already done bean with bacon and split pea soups pretty easily.  Good call on the mosquito killer, I think we are staying right next to a lake!

    In addition to clothing, rain gear, and sleeping bag, a water filter such as Katadyne, big knife, cigarette lighter...

    Oh and don't forget your cell-phone, xbox/gameboy, and laptop. :-)

    Oh, again, night-vision goggles for UFO spotting.

    As a hiker, the things I always pack, that have come in handy are these:

    large trash bags. These cover gear, and me, in unexpected rain storms.

    cold weather underwear: If a cold front hits, you better have it. Otherwise you have to stuff your shirt full of leaves for insulation.

    first aid kit. A friend once slipped down a rock incline. He slid the full distance, and lost a lot of skin. We were glad to have ample antiseptic and bandages.
