      Motion: Socks
      Flag: Any
      Shells: Kent 3" BB or #2
      Sound: Snowbait
      Player: Any. Should include at least one power horn however. And have adjustable volume.

      Ground blind: Finisher

      Snack in blind: Granola bar
      Drink: water and a thermos of coffee
      Energy drink: None needed
      Blind bag: Plastic ammo box. This makes it crush proof to keep things in order after you step on it in the dark. Also makes a fine gun rest.
