Are you planning on going outdoors for a hunting expedition soon? Then you must be prepared and know what to pack so you won’t be shorthanded or endanger yourself while you are on the field! So if you’re wondering about how to stay safe and prepared outdoors, here are the tips you should follow.
Pack For Protection
One of the essential things you’ll need to bring when going hunting would be protective gear, such as cold weather hunting gloves, bulletproof vests, and warm clothes. This will ensure that you are safe from colder inclement weather and that the clothes will cushion the blow in case of falls. It will keep you comfortable while you are out as well.
Ready Your Equipment and Some More
When you are packing, you will need to ready your equipment to stay prepared when targeting game and to remain undetected. This will mean airing out your clothes to stay odor-free or to clean and polish your firearms to use with ease. Pack accordingly and pack extra necessities, such as ammunition or food. Do not overpack on clothes and unnecessary items. Leave heavy items like books or extra gadgets (for recreation) back home.
Research and Scout the Area
Plan the area you will be hunting in and secure your permit if needed. Read up on the rules and regulations and if possible, scout the area to know where the strategic points are and where it’s safe to stay in. This will prevent you from getting lost or detected from your game while hunting.
Prepare for Survival
Always remember that you are in the wilderness and there are chances that you’ll end up having to defend yourself for anything that MAY happen. While the chances of getting lost or in trouble are rare (as long as you do your research), they may happen, and it’s crucial to prepare for it. Always have first aid and survival kit that consists of your necessities, from emergency blankets down to food and medicine.
Train and Practice
You won’t be able to hunt successfully if you aren’t well-equipped with the knowledge of how to hunt! When you have the time, use it for target practice so you can stay safe when handling your gun and ensure a catch every time you hunt. Practice safety first, too!
