Posted on: 23 April 2015 by Andrew Newitt
Here is a compiled list of things that will make your camping and hunting experience so much easier.
You have reached that stage of your life where you want to experience something different, embark on that adventure you never had, or just want to spend more time overpowered with thrill, adrenaline and the feeling of being active. If this is the case, camping and hunting are the right choices for you, which will help you not only feel more alive, but younger and stronger as well. Let's take a look at some essentials which will surely make the hunting experience much better.
Let us start by bringing a first aid kit. The good days of burning youth are behind you, and you have to be prepared if the things go grey. First aid kit can be useful in more than one way, so make sure you’ve packed yours before you go into the wild. Also, any medicine and antibiotics can be a bonus, for the thrill and excitement can take their tolls.
Bring a box or two of matches and enjoy a good old-fashioned fire. A well-made and safe fire is essential for your survival, so make sure you keep the matches in a dry area, but always at hand. If you`re not a fan of matches, a lighter can be a great substitution, but do bring more than one, in case you may need it.
Don’t forget to bring something for communication. A walkie-talkie can be a life saver in critical situations, but also a great means of communication with other campers or friends and family. Make sure you bring an additional pair of batteries, just in case yours gets damaged or watered.
Bringing a trail camera with you can make your hunting much easier. This will save you a lot of time and effort and will help you understand the animal that you are about to hunt, which is also quite important when going for the kill.
A map is also a great help, so make sure you bring one. Always be aware of where you are, not only for your own insight, but also for the purpose of other potentially dangerous and life threatening situations. If anything bad occurs, you ought to know where you are so help can be on its way fast. So remember to keep track of your movement at all times, circle your camping spot and put down notes of any important things (like water source, wild animals, caves, food sources, etc.)
For any experienced hunter night time presents the perfect challenge. Getting the right kind of night goggles can make the adventure even more memorable. So before opting for a specific pair, have a look at at least one night vision goggles review online, just to see if the pair you want is actually the pair you need.
Carrying a weapon can be a dangerous thing if not handled with caution, so make sure you always respect your weapon and, before pulling the trigger, make sure you absolutely need to do so. A weapon cleaning kit can be very helpful in the case of bad weather conditions, since it can damage the weapon and make it malfunction. Clean your weapon regularly and you will have no problems using it.
Hunting and camping is a thing that brings out good memories and is excellent for reliving all those youthful moments again. You will be adrenaline-pumped and walk the shoes of a 20-year old again. Keep in mind that it is important to go prepared and prevent all potential dangers. Better to be safe than sorry.
