What do the deer hunting TV show hosts ALWAYS keep in their deer hunting packs? We asked them and came up with some interesting answers

What do the hunting show hosts on Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and MyOutdoorTV shows keep in their deer hunting packs?

When we posed that question to a number of them, there was a listing of some of the usual things that you might expect — pull ropes, GPS units, limb saws, flashlights, hunting knives, extra batteries, SDHC film cards, etc.

Take Mark Drury, for example, legendary host of several shows on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel, including the award winning THIRTEEN.

“I keep a wind checker in my pack,” said Drury. “I also have a brush clipper, a saw, a Nikon rangefinder, Nikon 10×42 binoculars, and a Tru-Fire bow release. There’s also my hunting tags, a screw-in bow holder, a pull-up rope, an extra treestand harness tether, and my Outdoors Edge hunting knife. That’s everything that’s in my pack.”
