Gear For All Types Of Hunting

Gear For All Types Of Hunting

April 19, 2008 by

A turkey hunter will be considered a seasoned professional if they were able to enlist the interest of a turkey through a variety of turkey calls. Some turkey hunters might attempt to use a wet stick to make the call and others might try to compose a musical verse through the adjustable tone features of a turkey hunting box call device. Hunters will devise a way to use all sorts of gear while hunting turkeys deep in a forest, and while they wait, they might have time to think about other gear to bring with them the next time they decide to hunt turkey.

Turkey hunters have plenty of time on their hands while hunting these feathered friends. Some will stay nestled behind a blind for most of the night knowing that the fabricated building will ward off the night chill and keep them warm until the first light of a new day arrives. Most turkey hunters will prefer to use turkey-hunting supplies like blinds that camouflage but some turkey hunters will choose to use only a camouflaged roof to keep the rain off their heads for a short while.

The turkey hunter might not care whether the call sounds like a mad wet hen or the raspy call of a tom turkey looking for a suitable mate, but they will care if the result of using this type of hunting gear will mean that there is a bird in the bag at the end of the day. Some hunters might even use cassettes and compact disk to learn how to attract a turkey through an ornate calling system.

Some instructional tapes for turkey hunting might suggest that several decoys be deployed. A turkey would feel quite comfortable in the woods if they witnessed a breeding pair of decoys in the direction that the turkey was about to roam. If a Tom turkey were to wander that way, they might find some interest in other turkey decoys that were strategically placed in the woods. The turkey hunter could make sure that every fowl present could see the bobbing heads of several turkeys as they moved up and down. These movements would make it seem to turkeys like this area would be a great area to stop and feed.

Gear for other hunting trips might be angled on shooting deer, wild boar, or black bears and the hunting gear chosen would depend on the hunting season. Hunters will always ensure that they carry a trustworthy tent in which many hunters can spend the night and sleeping bags will be included on the list for every person in the group. Every hunter will want a flashlight to use for those special trips to the woods in the middle of the night, and all hunters will appreciate at least a spray of bug repellant before nightfall.

Certain hunters might choose to wear boots with a water-resistant outsole, and others might prefer boots sized to accommodate several pairs of socks. Duck hunters are certain to want waders if a duck or a goose comes across the cross hairs of the rifle they will be toting. Hunters are sure to keep an ample supply of tree stands around so that they can line up on a buck without casting a scent. Other hunters will walk through the woods confidently knowing that the scent blockers they used at camp are camouflaging their presence in the woods nicely.
