Default Hunter Preparedness

After a situation the other day (nobody got hurt) that could have turned out way bad, I decided to get y'alls input and output on how you prepare for a hunt. Not only personal equipment, but what you take along for the ute just in case.

Now I understand there are a lot of variables and that's really what I'm after. Yous guys from across the pond, down under and the dark continent feel free to chime in too please as there will be a scenario two that has to do with warmer climates.

OK, here's scenario one: (we'll work on one at a time)

It's a "day hunt" meaning you plan to be gone all day, it's cold, about 10* F, snowing
and you are taking your teenage daughter hunting. Your ute is in tip top shape, full of fuel and ready to go. You know the area well, but it is remote and the chances of seeing other hunters is pretty low. Cell phone coverage is sketchy.
