Summer is almost here, which means it’s time to prepare for camping and hunting season. Both activities are great forms of exercise and excellent ways to connect with nature. If you are planning a summer camping or hunting trip here are a few tips to make this season the best:
Prepare your weapon– If you plan on hunting this summer, be sure that your weapon is in tip-top shape for the season. It is crucial to prepare your equipment before a hunt. Whether you use a rifle, shotgun, or a crossbow it is important to practice before starting the hunt. Before you take your trip, visit a shooting range first to practice your skills for an easy and ethical kill.
Plan your trail– Before hunting in an area for the first time it is best to become familiar with the area before you begin. Take a walk through the hunting grounds to get your bearings and find the best location to shoot from.
Dress correctly– When planning a hunting trip it is important to dress for the occasion. Camouflage or earth-toned clothing is best. Be sure to check the weather before beginning your hunt to be aware of any changes in temperature. Remember to wear blaze orange clothing on your top layer, like a vest, jacket or hat. The blaze orange colour will help distinguish you from nature to ensure that other hunters can see you clearly.
Pack accordingly– Remember to bring the essentials like water, snacks, a first aid kit, and any medication you may need. Choose a hunting backpack that is both comfortable and functional.
