15 Hunting Supplies All Hunters Must Have

Dating back to prehistoric times, hunting has been a game of survival between the human species and the animal world! Gradually, with the advent of civilization and technological advances, man has fine tuned the art of hunting into a skill which few possess. Those who do, use the activity of hunting as a form of relaxation or as a method to get fresh meat. Since this activity can only be indulged in the wilderness, it would be wise to stock up with essential hunting supplies.

Let us start with the basics first! Whether a novice or a professional, each hunter should have these hunting supplies—

(1) Easy to transport all the hunting gear if a good “backpack” is available.
(2) A “rifle”. Minimum number of cartridges should be 10 (can take more if required).
(3) A “compass” would be helpful to get a sense of direction.
(4) “Maps” of areas where the hunt is going to take place.
(5) A good pair of “binoculars” (standard ones, nothing fancy) will come in handy.
(6) Game to be stored in a “cotton game bag”.
(7) A “large knife” for skinning the game.
(8) A smaller “Swiss Army knife”.
(9) Meat can be hung from a strong “nylon string”.
(10) If felt necessary, a “saw” can be carried to remove horns, ribs, legs and antlers.
(11) Unwanted stuff goes into “garbage bags”.

Apart from the above, a skilled hunter will also include what he/she considers as essentials, to his/her stock of hunting supplies. What could these be?

(12) As times change and ecosystems are getting damaged in the process, newer rules and regulations concerning hunting have come into play. Officials keep track of the time of the year when certain species of animals and birds are to be found in abundance, as well as the areas which are heavily populated by these species. Accordingly, tickets and hunting permits and licenses are issued. Woe betides the hunter if these are not part of his/her hunting supplies! He/she can go home leaving the “game” unfinished!

(13) An expert hunter will not be satisfied with a one-day trip; he/she wants more! Also, sometimes hunting takes place with the aid of traps, which will not yield results in just one day. Then some thought has to be given to the question of shelter and a sufficient amount of food.

(14) Unlike humans, birds and animals have been blessed with a keen sense of smell. If Scent Control is missing from the stock of hunting supplies, the hunter would find himself in trouble. The hunter is “smelt” by the victim, before the hunter can “spot” the prey! Therefore, the basic wear to restrict the human scent such as—base layer hunting pants, camouflage shirt, out camouflage pants, balaclava hunting headgear, hunting radar hat, gloves and boot socks—should be added to the list of hunting supplies.

(15) Finally, if hunting is taken up during the cold season, hunting supplies should include special camouflage wear to blend with the surroundings.
