What the Hunter Needs to Make Camp

 

What the Hunter Needs to Make Camp

 by Darren Randolf

Essential, vital, indispensable, critical – whatever adjective you choose, when it comes to the hunter having a successful camping experience there are reasons for the extra gear they need.

 

The big items on everyone’s list – firearms, ammo, clothing, etc. – are only the core of what a hunter truly needs to set up a campsite and then bag the trophy they’re out there looking for. One of the most overlooked items that the hunter needs in the Great Outdoors is a small folding saw. This is one tool that allows the hunter to construct the concealment needed. Cutting tangled branches in order to create a spot in the middle of natural cover is important. Whether up in the tree or at the base of one, being able to pull back, rearrange and prune the area easily requires tools.

 

Bucks will never come anywhere close if the hunter is not extremely careful when establishing cover. And if the wind happens to change direction, the spot needs to be changed as well. It is important to note that staying in the tree stand is not always the best bet when it comes to weather conditions. Natural ground cover will get you closer to the buck’s headquarters. Believe it or not, some setting up campprofessionals have stated that over time deer have learned to look up for those tree stands; they know exactly what they are and what’s in them. Natural ravines, sinkholes, brush, overturned limbs – these are far more helpful blinds.

 

Doe-in-heat scents in small spray bottles should also be taken along, so that when you enter the habitat you can spray the limbs and shrubbery as you move forward to find a place to camp.

 

The rattle is a necessary item. When it comes to the rattle, bucks usually always approach but make sure the wind is at your back. Rattling with the wind in the buck’s face will force them to enter the open spaces where you can see them before they smell you. Rattling should be slow and soft for one or two minutes before waiting for five minutes and then increasing the rattle. Raking the ground will also help keep you undercover.

 

A grunt tube is used so that when the hunter walks from their tree stand or blind spot, the grunt tube can be blown on periodically. The deer will choose one of two processes – either wait while you approach or come right out into the open to check out what’s going on. Suffice to say no matter where you roam make sure the rifle is ready.

 

Glow sticks to mark a trail when tracking a wounded deer after the sun goes down will help immensely. A sharp knife is also important for any emergency the hunter may have, from clothing being caught, to predators that may surprise to clearing tough vegetation.

 

Remember that for the campsite tools to split wood are important to have. A splitting maul can be used instead of an axe

 

When you put up that tent, make sure to note the lines and the placement of the stakes because these are hazards in the dark of night. Small, solar-powered lights can be used to brighten the campsite for safety.

 

If the hunter is camping for more than a couple of days, know that your scent will grow and be far easier for the buck to catch. Scent-free clothing detergent should be brought along. This, a bucket and cool water will allow you to wash everything so that you are not a standout to the buck you’re trying to catch.

 

And when you do catch that buck, the Game Sled from Hunting’s a Drag, Inc. best be with you so you can extract the deer quickly and easily from the habitat. Make sure the prize you’ve worked so hard to get can be set on this six-pound gurney that will easily carry 400 pound game, and take the worry out of transporting.
