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
- Safety Harness
- My boots (I put on when I arrive at my hunting spot)
In my backpack I carry:
- Hand warmers
- Grunt call
- Rattling Antlers
- Doe urine
- Buck Bomb
- Knife with a gut hook
- Scent Wafer
- String Wax
- My license (hunting)/tags
- Gloves (light weight and heavy)
- Extra socks
- A snack
- 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.
