You're lisense and tags and a headlamp with extra batteries. Is your knife/knifes sharpened up and ready to go? Reflective tap to use when blood trailing? Backpack with snacks? A good book for long sits?

Havalon for caping and meat/hack saw for removing skull cap. Can't bring back any spine or brain matter.

From my experience with Iowa, a Loc-on with sticks is a must, I went 2 years ago and lots of trees were not climber friendly. I was able to make do but definitely take a loc-on for another option... ground blind as well! Good luck!!! Your gonna love it out there!

Can’t believe no one has mentioned Imodium yet. I never take an important trip without a new batch. Things happen, especially when eating other peoples cooking. Don’t want to spend the whole trip on the pot

A set of basic tools. Some Allen heads if for some reason you need to tweak your bow from the trip up And anything from minor vehicle repairs to Treestand problems

A set of walkie-talkies not be a bad idea in case cell phone coverage is a problem in that area.

Super glue, Gorilla tape and two bic lighters

Last but not least a couple small honey packets like what do you find at KFC. An old man once told me to keep a couple in my pack
