Absolutely nothing

The only new thing in my backpack this season will be fresh snacks.

I was going to say ditto until I remembered the new Swaro EL Ranging binos that I picked up recently.

My new Garmin Montana 600t GPS, which I am currently using on my Wyoming mule deer hunt. I spend way too much money on hunting and gear, but this is the best money I've spent in a while. It is great!

Two things. With my new Big Mike pop up I can finally shoot my trad bows without canting. The wind really swirls in a couple of my spots and I get busted often no matter the wind direction so I finally broke down and bought an Ozonics. I hope to find it is worth the money

I'm almost finished building my chuck box (portable camp kitchen). I'm pretty excited to use that for the first time. Also buying a Summit climbing stand and Halo rangefinder this weekend. Looking torward to putting them to work.

I'll be posting photos of the chuck box under DIY soon.

The new Sitka Elevated II pattern works great up in the oaks and cedars of Central Texas. I used the new hoody that has a built in face/neck mask. The deer stared right through me all weekend. I don't think anything ever knew I was there, including the buck I shot. I'm a satisfied Sitka customer.
