    As long as you're wearing a vest or jacket and cap that meets all blaze orange requirements,wearing your back pack over it doesn't technically violate those requirements under the Act. There's no specific offense listed,however,it may be prudent to use a pack with a pull-out blaze orange insert or make a cover just for safety's sake. I've been checked many times while wearing a day pack and there's never been an issue simply because the pack can quickly be removed leaving a hunter in instant full compliance.

    Boot dryer is a must for me! Nice to slide your feet into warm dry boots on a cold morning. Preparation H, just in case..... Above all the gear don't forget that this is a great vacation and harvesting a moose is just bonus... Lastly don't forget to bring a big pile of patience!! Will be lots of hours staring at the beautiful scenery

    1) Never underestimate the value of technical clothing (Base Layers)
    - Under Armour Skin Tight Base Layer
    - Under Armour Base Layer 3.0 or 4.0 (depending on how cold it is)
    - Breathable, wicking sweaters
    and on the cold days, I have a North Face down jacket that can collapse into a small ball, I love it and am so happy that I have it. You put that on and do a couple push-ups or squats and to generate body heat and the down jacket does the rest. It's simply a must in cold weather combined with very little movement.

    2) Non-scented pre-packaged wet wipes
    - For your hands (if you want to eat lunch with some what of clean hands)
    - For your .
    It comes in small package, easily packable and if it rains, it doesn't get soaked like TP would sitting in your bag.
    3) Sunflower seeds (or chewing tobacco)

    4) Some guys may complain about this but I have a small MSR Pocket Rocket Stove (http://www.basspro.com/MSR-PocketRoc...product/45441/), I can run it on the lowest setting and it makes no sound and will slowly warm up a soup or chilli for lunch. Or, a fresh cup of tea before you get ready for the evening push.

    Lastly, nothing beats a cellphone that has 3G or 4G access... If you have it than a Mophie battery power station will become your best friend. I have one that can charge my phone 3 times.

    Hope this helps.
    I know some folks are not happy with Under Armour but they have the best base layer clothing bar none. I use 4.0 and 3.0 for ice fishing and late season hunting and it is worth every (expensive) penny IMO. You can actually feel the sweat being absorbed from your body, GPS and extra batteries are another winner
