When you guys go hunting, what is the one thing you have to have that's just optional? Everyone has to have a bow and their arrows, and typically a stand, but what else dont you leave home without. For me its my pocket sized camera. I have one that's about 4 by 2 inches and fits nicely in my pocket. when I started out, I always was telling myself, man i wish I had a picture of this or that. Now I carry it with me most of the time.
