What you guys carry and suggest

Alright, most of you know, I am packing into the Trinity Alps towards the end of August. It will be the 2nd week of archery season and we are packing 5-10 miles into some areas near a few mountain lakes. I am just curious what everone carries when they pack in. Im looking at 50-60 lbs in my pack for 4 and a half days. Here is what I have come up with to take.
30 degree sleeping bag
My new Jetboil camp stove
A filtration sytem
a knife set for field dressing and boning
GPS/hard copy maps
enough food for 5 days (mostly energy bars and dehydrated meals)
deck of cards
head lamp with extra batteries
first aid/survival kit
some light wieght rain gear
Bow/Arrows/Extra Archery equipment (spare screws, pin, allen key, knock, dozen arrows)
Looking for suggestions on if Im missing any key essentials, if I should cut back on some things, or if you guys have gear suggestions for any of the listed above (personnal experience or reviews). Been looking at a few items in the gear reviews and seeing if anyone has more they would like to share. Dont want to spend a ton, but want quality gear. I can always upgrade next year if this trip becomes an annual hunt.
Thanks in advance!
