Hunting can be tricky.  I couldn’t tell you how many times I have found my self in my deer stand and then discovered I forgot something. it is the most frustrating thing ever! I have created a checklist I go over to ensure this never happens again. And today I am going to share it with you.

Equipment I always take with me

  • My bow
  • My release
  • Quiver of arrows
  • My backpack full of necessary items
  • Rangefinder
  • Binoculars
  • Safety Harness
  • My boots (I put on when I arrive at my hunting spot)

In my backpack I carry:

  • Hand warmers 
  • Binoculars
  • Grunt call
  • Rattling Antlers
  • Doe urine
  • Buck Bomb
  • Knife with a gut hook
  • Scent Wafer
  • String Wax
  • Chap-stick
  • Flashlight
  • My license (hunting)/tags
  • Gloves (light weight and heavy)
  • Extra socks
  • Water
  • A snack
  • Chapstick
  • Tissues
  • Extra batteries for my flashlight

I get up super early and I am not always wide awake and thinking. I double and sometimes even triple check to make sure I have everything I need ready to go.  I prepare all of  the above before I go to bed. I also check to see when tomorrows sunrise is.

Getting dressed for the hunt is a different today than when I went with my dad. I worry about scent control now. I always take a shower and wash my hair and body with special shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I use Scent Killer Gold for her.

After getting dressed and putting on my deodorant I am careful not to put on any perfume. I grab my backpack and head to my favorite hunting spot. Once there I put on my hunting boots, harness and backpack. I then spray myself down with field spray, and head to my stand.

All products above are what i currently use. I have a list of products I plan to test and try. I have come across several products just for women and I cannot wait to try them out! I will be doing product reviews on them later and posting their links for you.
