If you are like far too many people out there, you have been promising yourself a hunting adventure for far too long. You talk with your friends and all are trying to find the time and the cash but nothing seems to gel up. Well here are a few tips that can help you to finally get your boots on the ground.
Man Up and Head Out
Consider to go it alone. It might seem like a radical concept until you take stock of the facts. More mobility, better chances at bagging game and if you haven’t spent a few days and nights alone in the wilderness then maybe you are long over due for the quite contemplation and serene solitude.
Bring a Light Load
You may be surprised at all that you can do without on successful hunting adventures. Travel light and you can cover far more miles of terrain. In fact, you really don’t even need a tent or so much of the other camping equipment that you see advertised.
A Few Items to Consider
Sleep under the stars on a small plastic tarp. If it starts to rain simply climb under it. Bring along a few gallons of bottled water and some packages of food that are ready to eat. Remember that large food packages are a hassle. They tend to get dirt and ants in them, so try to stick to individual serving packages.
A Few More Things to Consider
Another tip is that you don’t need an expensive gun and scope. Buy a cheap used knock-around and you won’t have to worry about things like water damage. Also, remember to bring along all that you need to field dress and pack your game.
Get Yourself Into a Target Rich Environment
With all that you save on equipment you can then afford the time and the money that it takes to get to where the game is. It really does pay to get yourself into a target rich environment so you just can’t cut corners there. Believe it. If you are bagging good game you will gladly sleep on rocks and eat dry cornflakes and peanut butter washed down with plain water for a week.
