What To Bring On Your Hunt
As a hunting guide, one of the main questions I am asked is what others need to bring when they take a hunting trip with us. The short answer for this question is simple. Anything you feel that you will need when hunting with us. We provide you the space you need to hunt in if you are interested in having a successful trip in a new area that you are unfamiliar with. We provide the safety vest to ensure that everyone in the area has the same style and same colors on. Beyond that, you are on your own. Instead of having to have more people ask me what to bring on your hunt, I have come up with a list that I feel are necessities when it comes to hunting in this area.
The Bare Necessities
These necessities may vary depending on the type of hunting trip that you will be going on while with us. If you are hunting deer you will need one type of gear, for quail you will need another. If there are specific things you need, we will tell you. However, a basic rule of thumb is to bring along with you a gun that is able to shoot things far away. This means that you will need to ensure you have the best long range scope you can afford.
You will also want to consider bringing the ammunition that your gun needs, scent to disguise your own natural scent, a flashlight, a gun case, gloves, and seasonal clothing for your trip as well as an extra pair in case you get wet or the temperature drops. One thing that many people do choose to bring is a pair of binoculars to help them see things that are far away. This could improve your chances for a great hunt.
The Extras You May Consider Bringing
One of the necessities that may also fit within the extras is a better scope for your rifle. If you are not sure that your scope is everything it should be, you may want to check out a Nikon Prostaff 3-9×40 review. It has the ability to focus quickly and it will not be affected by fog as badly as other scopes.
Some people choose to bring a fanny pack or a small backpack along with them. It is recommended that you bring scent reduction bags for spare clothes, bottles of water and snacks, however none of these things are required. You may also choose to bring along with you a knife and some rope or even a tree stand. You may want to bring a camera with extra batteries and a cell phone. Keep in mind that while hunting, everything you bring along should be kept on silent modes.
When asking what to bring on your hunt, you should also keep in mind that you should bring the things that you personally will need for that day. This includes medications and other personal necessities that may or may not be involved in your personal hunting experiences. We look forward to a great day out, your comfort should be one of your primary considerations when packing.
