I always have the same EDC stuff on me in the woods that I have anywhere else.  (See this thread).  But the extras that go with me to the woods are either my customized BG Knife or my SRK (usually both now), I have a small backpack that has a couple of extra water bottles in it as well as rain gear, leather work gloves, a 100ft paracord donut, a couple of waterproof sacks with spare socks, firestarting kits (several usually, along with matches and multiple feraconium rods) ziplock bags, zip ties, a couple heavy duty black markers, a roll of safety/trail marking tape, a roll of duct tape.  Sharpening gear to keep the sharp stuff sharp, 3 or 4 of the cheap $1 ponchos from Walmart to give to others who don't bring rain gear. 

 

 

I pack and repack my go bag based on what I'm going to be doing and when i'm going to be doing it.  I don't have enough duplicates of gear to just keep multiple gear bags ready, so I have a shelf with lots of gear and I just swap out what I need based on the area i'm going to, what part of the year it is and what I plan to do.

Razor, you're such a minimalist!  :P

 

Actually, that's a GOOD thing, because you'd be able to survive with just a little change in your pocket while I would be running around like this  scared011.gif because I'd forgotten my mascara.

The leg trap is a good item. Snares and dead falls are time consuming and not that efficient.

Yes I agree, its very small and lightweight, it will even hold goats and small pigs, I always carry it as I like to trap possums even if im not going to eat them, they are a serious threat to our ecological system so a dead possum is a good possum.
