    That's allot of boats, and doesn't seem economical

    A Come-a-Long or manual winch, sharp knives, axe or hatchet, some clean rags and rope. Don't over pack with a bunch of Cabela's hunting gadgets! The best hunting tool other than your firearm is binoculars.

    Quality rubber boots. A good rain suit. A GPS. A good knife. A bottle of wind checking powder ( its actually unscented talcum powder sold in the archery section usually). I like to use a small daypack to haul my gear when out for the entire day. If you have electricity in camp then a Peets boot dryer is great. Never forget azzwipe. The day you forget it you will need it. We also all carry rubber gloves for gutting and butchering.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    as it is unchartered terrioty for me .....I am hoping the basic bushnell back track will serve me well in the case I get turned around. I dont have a big fancy gps of any sort........so i will be relying on the back track, compass, and marking tape which hopfully I dont need any of them unless tracking a downed moose.

    Don't forget the cheesecloth socks.

    A small, foldable camp chair if you're not a 'stander'. I knew guys that could stand (or lean on a tree) for most of their watch, hours on end, not me. I used to drag a collapsible lawn chair everywhere that fit neatly tied to the bottom of my pack - and it was great. Being on a watch for hours on end, you want to ensure you're going to be comfortable. Not to mention warm.

    Good luck. And don't shoot a 1 1/2 year old!

    A very sharp knife, and a sharpener. Moose (even a calf) are a lot tougher than a deer.
    If hunting is a sport, than I'm an athlete.

    Lots of rope, if you have to wade/pull one across a swamp you will appreciate this. Means of hanging/come along.lots of flag tape, if someone wings one and you start tracking too soon and end up 6 hours from home all on foot you will need lots of tape. Good luck!
