What about a bow? Arrows can be made and they're quiet and deadly for hunting or protection

I mean, I have a bear compound bow but I was just throwing it out there as an option since I never saw anything about one when it could have been a good weapon to use

Wooden arrows and compounds dont go together though. Iv tried and the results were disaterous.

I'd also like to add a small folding shovel, I've buried my rear wheel a few times & being on a steep hill doesn't make it any easier.

What's the purpose of the kit? Is it a get-home/bug-out bag? If so, keep it simple, lightweight and include the things that are necessary. It's really easy to keep adding this and that and before you know it your 25lb bug-out bag weighs 75lbs and you won't use it.

If it's an INCH bag or bags, that might be a different story - throw whatever you want or need in there.

Having put together one of those bags, I can say it's too damn heavy. If I have a vehicle, fine. Once it was on my back for any time, it got pared down pretty quick. YMMV.

bare essentials in my bag , Food im not worried about there plenty of game animals in IL , Water source would include my MSR water works filter since we have a 18,000 acre lake near by , single man tent , -20 sleeping bag, small first aid kit ,anticeptic ,small tarp , Knife, sharpener, small Axe , multi tool, stainless 2 litre container to cook in , couple bic lighters , magnesium fire starter, 250 yards @60# test fishing line, light rain suit , .22 survival rifle , milk jug "full of .22 rounds" that could also be used to store water in, Thats about all I really need to get by with and were talking less than 25# , minus the jug of .22 rounds that itself is going to weigh that much
