Hunter’s Bucket Checklist – 23 items you must take with you

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This article is taken from Five Gallon Ideas, which features over 100 uses for 5 gallon buckets with more being added all the time.

If you’re a hunter, you already know that a 5 gallon bucket is an essential piece of equipment.

Just look at all these advantages a bucket has over inferior backpacks, a wheelbarrow, or a pack mule.

  • Waterproof
  • Sturdy
  • It’s a seat
  • and best of all, it’s a bucket

You’ll likely be sitting for hours so you’ll also want to rest your royal ass in comfort. I like a seat with lumbar support myself, but the padded seats are much more compact.

Top 23 Hunting Bucket Items

Here’s a list of 23 hunting items I wouldn’t leave without. Make sure you check off at least the top 10:

  • Binoculars
  • Decoys
  • Duck whistle
  • Flashlight
  • Pocketknife
  • Gutting knives
  • Water bottle
  • Bug Repellent
  • Camouflage clothing
  • Sharpening stone
  • Pair of extra socks
  • Matches
  • First aid kit
  • Map
  • Compass
  • Hunter’s License
  • Pencil
  • Ammunition
  • Bow or a gun
  • Wire cutter
  • Pruner
  • Rain Gear
  • Toilet Paper

Don’t overstock your hunter’s bucket, you can’t fit a whole butcher’s shop in 20 liters, and you can’t afford to make it overly burdensome if you are traveling miles through the woods. Splitting the weight with a buddy is recommendable.

Also, consider your prey. If you hunt large game you’ll need to include a bone saw. Adjust the checklist to meet your individual needs.
