The recent article "The Modern Hunter's Checklist" (October 2017 issue) by John Barsness, couldn't have been more timely for this old gray-haired deer hunter. It seems I only put things into my daypack--nothing is ever removed. And these things stay forever and forever, amen. After reading John's article I went out to the gunroom and emptied my overweight daypack I carry hunting on the floor. With John's article as guidance I trimmed weight of contents by 50 percent! But trimming down the pack is the easy part--now I need to work on the extra 20 pounds around my waist. Keep up the great articles John.
