    I cut on my property so I bring a pretty minimalistic kit with me. If I need something, I can just run up to the house and get it. But this is what I carry with me on my ATV. I do all my cutting in one session, then come back with my Jeep and a trailer to haul it up to my outdoor wood stove.

    Ok guys, I finally took the whole two minutes to take a few pictures of my little bag. I normally bring this anywhere I have to walk any distance. I don’t go too far off my main trails so I don’t usually carry it very far.

    The pulp hook is normally in the truck but was able to fit it for the picture. My chaps normally go in there too.

    This kit also has a few small items outside of firewood purposes for when I encounter cool things or require in my travels. GPS, diameter tape, increment borer, notepad, whistle/3 sources of fire/compass (stuff from College), etc.

    This is always in the truck so everything I normally need isn’t far. And it isn’t too heavy.
    Out of the truck, I’d have the bag on my back, hard hat on, chaps on, saw in one hand, gas/oil in other.

    The axe is an old axe we had at work in our fire shed. They were all pretty beat up but serve well as a wedge pounder for the small bit that I use it.

    Thanks for all your replies! It was awesome to read

    Matt

    I consider my must have items first, saw, gas, bar oil, scwrench, file, and my cell phone. Often I take two or three saws and a couple of extra chains. I cant remember ever using a wedge and dont even own one. I got a saw, dont need a axe. I keep a 100ft steel cable on the truck along with a snatch block. I aint carrying those on my back into the woods. And if I can get close enough with the truck to pull trees, it aint that far to walk to retrieve those items out of the truck. Been thinking about swapping the steel cable for some amsteel rope. I also keep a few bottles of drinking water handy. My truck has a firstaid kit always. In reality, if I am cutting firewood, my truck is going to be pretty close. I aint toteing wood a mile to load on a truck and I aint into heliochopper logging.

    Where I live when cutting in the forest you need a permit then attach tag to the wood before you move more than 50ft from where youre cutting. I use a staple for that. Also a hole punch to punch the tag.

    I carry 4 saws. A top handle to mark length, a 40cc to limb, a 60 and 70cc to buck in case one saw goes down. Chains so I dont have to sharpen in the field. Files, brushes, bar groove tool, screw drivers for carbs. :D Im usually cutting a good hour away from home, so a trip back because something isnt working is a bad day.

    A 2 gallon jug of water is planned. Going to mount it to my trailer. Then I will have a sink of sorts. ;)
