Just a thought

You're preparation list looks very good! The only thing that I saw right off hand was that you don't own a .22 caliber rifle. They are so handy, cheap to buy, shells are still cheap, and are the most universal little gun you can have. The pellet gun probably won't take down most furbearers (like a raccoon) but the .22 will and won't cause much damage to the pelt. It'll also give you a longer range. You'll still need the 7.62 for larger animals and those "tough as nails" oppossums (ask me how I know that), but the .22 will save your more expensive bigger caliber rounds for when you really need them.
