What did you forget to take hunting?

958 Views 33 Replies 29 Participants Last post by  WIbow
Last Saturday was opening day of archery season. About 20 minutes after daylight I realized I forgot my license.:eek: I was a good boy and left the woods to get it. 8 years ago I shot a doe only to realize I left my knife at home. It was 3/4 mile walk to my dads house to get 1. Has this ever happened to you?

I forgot my release once about 10 years ago. I forgot extra flashlight batteries once, shot a deer in the evening and my flashlight died while tracking it, over a mile away from camp. That was a long walk in the dark.

I dont think I have ever forgot anything. My hunting partner always seems to forget his release though. I keep all my stuff in my pouch.

I left for an antelope hunt two years ago without my bow:eek:

Thank God I was only a couple miles away when I realized it.

I think i have forgot everything at least once. I haven't forgot my bow but i had to open the shop back up after i started my truck when i left the other night to head out. luckily i didn't forget that one. I've forgot my licence, gloves, hats, jackets, knifes, releases, you name it.

I don't have any good "forget" stories as far as archery, but one gun season I drove all the way to my hunting spot, was about to leave to truck to head to my stand, then realized I forgot my bullets at home. haha :D :D

Forgot my knife one year and killed a doe that night. My broadhead did the trick though:wink:
Done that. Thunderhead 125's have a great blade on them:wink:

I have forgotten my release several times, Binocs several times, Rangefinder often, Flashlight - had dead batteries many times, camera, rope, I forgot to grab my boots and had to hunt in sneakers once(I dress in my hunting clothes at the truck on site), and I am sure there is more. I stock a fannypack and roll, but my kids have "borrowed" several items without returning them. The release, binos, rangefinder are all on me though:embara:

I have never forgot my bow or arrows at least... Not yet. This doesn't even begin to list the "honey do's" that I forgot during deer season. There is not enough bandwidth to list those....:zip:

After a couple decent frosts last week, I forgot(decided not to take) my Thermacell on Saturday. BAD idea! They ate me up. I was at full draw on a nice doe, and had one biting me right next to my eye.

Never did get that shot off. I'll blame it on the mosquito. :wink:

I'll only do this year, Thermocell, bow rope, and flash light. Not to bad though never have forgot anything major(bow, arrows, release).
