awshome!... you have put together a very good check off list my firend. i just saved it to ma computer, THANKS!!
but may i sugest a crossbow instead of a bow? the arrows are shorter and harder to break and you get alot more distance and acuracy than a bow, they
arent as bulky and dont get in the way when hunting, and if the string on a compound bow breaks you are screwed, but if it breaks on a crossbow, you
can replace it with a thin strong string.. sometimes even paracord which you should always have.
cots just get in the way when camping and arent that cumfy.. how bout a 1/2" foam sleefing pad, or an inflatable backpacking pad(rolls up small and
very cumfterable unless it has a large hole that cant be fixed with duct tape)
and what is your reason for a four man tent? for a family? room to move around? personally i would want something small and light. perhaps even just a
goretex bivy sack.(i have slept in one while camping atleast a dozen times theyr nice) and if its rainy just make a lean-too with camo tarp and
paracord or rope because even the waterfropf bivys seem to leak at the seams a little when its poaring down rain..
and why have a zippo? if you have a magnesiun stick you can just light the lighter fluid/gasoline/alcohol/spraypaint/hairspray or any other flamable
coton balls and vaseline should go with fire making tho..imo you should have a cooking catagory instead of putting it as general. and if you have a
water purifyer/filter their is no need for water purification tablets, they wont remove the heavy metals or dangerous chemicals in the water, and some
people are alergict to iodine,if you are you dont want water purifying tablets at all(i think if you are allergict to shellfish than you are allergict
to iodine water purifing tablets and potassium iodide)
thanks for the list!
