    Im adding a mouse trap to my kit. Just in case. Mice are everywhere and are useful for catching other critters or if needed eating my catch. Obviously a worse care scenario item.

    keep notes! every time you go out in the woods, keep detailed notes about what you used , how often, what you didn't use, where its stowed in your kit (is it in a good spot?) etc etc . I pared down my Scout Rig LB kit a lot and now its really getting dialed in

    That came in an Apocabox a year or two ago. Creek might still have some on his site for sale. I haven’t seen one for sale otherwise.
