WATER! A sharp knife and hone steel, a hat, binoculars, maybe a rangefinder, extra ammo (amount depends on the type of hunting), bipod/shooting sticks, cheesecloth to cover meat with once skinned and gutted, ziplock bags (for smaller game), MAP AND COMPASS/GPS, extra socks/shirts, calls, comfortable boots, rain shell (you never know), rope, string, food, matches, hatchet (if needed), written permission to hunt (on private land), copy of ordinances regulations (if anyone doubts your legality), licences, tags, phone/way to contact if something goes wrong (remember that cell phones dont work everywhere), a first aid/snakebite kit, a repair kit for anything that could break(ie. tent, bike tires, blinds), MORE WATER!!!, the knowledge of your land and the will to hunt!Sorry if this seemed lengthy, you can filter out unrelated items. Remember to pack light, you can cook fine on a small canister stove, you dont need a portable kitchen.And have fun!
