First elk hunt planned for second week in October. Are there any recommendations as to overlooked gear or items that anyone has deemed invaluable that would otherwise be omitted? Not looking for obvious items (blades, batteries, bags, etc). This will be a hunt with a base cabin and on privately leased land. Thanks for all input

Foot of the Big Belt Mountains near Townsend MT.
Rope, or better yet some mule tape in the pack. Comes in handy for many things like tying a leg up while field dressing alone.

A cell phone to call for help to get that critter to the truck. I hope to have that problem soon.

Another item I like to have is a few zip ties, they are great for attaching carcass tag and minor repairs. Extra boot laces are good to have along too. A multi purpose tool like a leatherman is handy, sometimes some pliers and a screwdriver can save the day. Good luck on your hunt.

Thanks for all the input. Actually had never heard of mule tape so I learned something from Jeff
