Having a hunting "day bag" is very similar in scope to having a bug-out bag, in that if one is serious about being able to handle getting lost in the wild, the overlap on what you need is pretty much 100%.
So that's what I have been doing: taking stock of what's in my large capacity pack (not a day bag), and realizing I need a pulk (sled) if I am going to be able to handle having a campsite (aka base camp) and another bag as a 3 day bag/hunting bag.
Also, I need to plan a way to store ammo as I live in an apartment and space is very limited. I want to be able to lock up my ammo in container(s) totally separate from the actual guns.
I seriously need to get back into prepping as I realized that I had used some of my preps and need to replace those, as well as continue finishing my shopping list that I had before.
So, as for actual adds:
-a few weapons and ammo for such
-camo clothing: jacket, hiking shoes, face covering, pants
-a couple ammo containers, one of which is for home storage (the other for travel to the range)
For home ammo storage I'm a big fan of filing cabinets. I have 2 that are about 3'x3'x18" deep.. I keep them in my garage, they lock, hold a ton of stuff and a nice flat surface to work on as well..
I know you said your in an apartment, but it could be scaled down all the same.
For portable travel I build big wooden crates. Like the old military ammo crates but to whatever size I need. I use rough cut 1" thick pine to keep the weight down.
The last one I built was 4'x2'x1' deepened weights about 12lbs empty. Strongoing and surcure, yet portable
