Carrying way to much in my backpack......
knife, license, small 1st aid kit, 1or2 full water bottles, camera, small tripod, scent, plastic bag, the "butt-out tool", plastic gloves, a few wipes, pull up rope, scent blocker spray, flashlight, hunter orange vest (for when I leave the woods), and a small saw.Probably more, can't recall right now, never food though.
I also carry on me in my pockets.. calls, binocs, extra ammo if gun hunting, cell phone,small knife, range finder, screw in bow holder. Maybe a few other things??!!

looks like thers alot of similarities in what we all carry . im a plan for the worst sit all day type person so i carry quite a bit. i have a scent blocker back pack that holds extra clothes or heavy clothes if need be. any snacks for the day go in there as well. a bottel of water. in a small fanny pack i keep my tags and license, small new testament, diapram turkey calls, grunt call, small bottel of scent killer(bigger bottle in back pack), flagging tape( for blood trails) cell phone , hand warmers,20-30' feet of rope,lighter. this year i plan to step up my fall prevntion to include a better recovery plan. this means carrying a fold up screw in step and a nylon strap to use as a foot strap to stand in for relieving stress from a harness if need be.

I hunt not far from home or camp...so a fanny pack is all I need ...that has a drink bottle..... dressing kit...fruit ...granola bar of candy bar...extra rope..binocs..... a rolled up length of camo cloth with ties...empty plastic jar..... 
On me ...many pockets....hard candy to keep from coughing...throat gets dry....grunt tube around neck...bleat in pocket ...knife on me and cell phone on vibrate....never turned off...if shot all I have to do is flip and hit 0...GPS will lead help to me....mini mag for tracking....scents ....TP...scent eliminator spray...in gun season warmers and extra bullets or speed loaders....
 Sometimes I carry a renzo decoy...or a renzo and bobbin head turkey to set up together...I turkey call with voice so no need for those

Compass, rope/deerdrag, folding saw, grunt tube, flagging tape, xtra hat, xtra socks, first-aid kit, snacks, xtra back tag holder (for tagging deer)
flashlight/batteries, hand warmers, knife, ziplock sandwich bags, matches/tinder, cell phone
This is standard no matter how far from home I am. Things happen and I'm no spring chicken anymore. Not to mention things can happen to other less experienced folks.

I stillhunt and log sit about 90% of the time now, so my pack is considerably lighter than it was a few years ago:
Water bottle, apple, granola bars, and a sandwich.
A small first aid kit I made that fits into a kid's juice box insulated case.
Wind puff bottle and pruners (both of which are usually in the cargo pockets of my hunting pants).
Small quantity of orange flagging tape, an extra bow string, my license, a few brown/black cable ties (GREAT for making quickie natural blinds!), a deer body weight tape, pelvic saw, compass, folded up TP, and a few Wash and Dri packets.
I use a fairly large fanny pack, but I will NOT go to a backpack because I'll just fill it up!
