Hunting Supplies That You Absolutely Must Have

Feb 27, 2008
Hunting supplies are the things you need to bring with you on a hunting trip. They are the items you need to make the trip as comfortable as possible and help you have a more successful trip.

Large Hunting Supplies -

Some of the larger hunting supplies would be something like a blind, which is like a tent, only completely dressed in camouflage. They call it a blind because the deer or other game you are hunting cannot see you in it. Some blinds pop up and fold away easily, while others need some assembly. There are simple blinds that can hide you and all your hunting supplies, or more complicated ones that have thick netting over them that cover a wider area so you can walk around more like an indoor campground. Blinds are a must have to hide from your prey and keep your hunting supplies hidden if you venture off to a tree stand or another part of the forest.

Decoy Hunting Supplies -

Decoys are another large hunting supply you may want to take with you on your hunting trip. There are deer and elk decoys, such as the elk Montana decoy which is a flat cutout of the elk, yet looks very natural and is life sized. It has helped bring the elk back to the south and in many studies, has proved to hold the stare of elk bulls so you can get the shot of a lifetime without being noticed.

Other decoys are large Whitetail Doe, Cow elk rump (which is just the back end of the elk and it looks as if it is grazing), Tom turkeys, thief Jake turkeys, Hot Hen turkey, the Call Girl Hen turkey (which is an inflatable decoy), the breeding Tom (which his feathers are in the mating stance) and the bad act strutting Tom turkey, all of which are life-sized and life-like. Each of these decoys have been field tested and have been carved and spray painted from an actual live animal to give your decoy more life-like features.

Tree Stand Hunting Supplies -

Another large item to bring on your hunting trip would be a tree stand, which you sit in a tree for long periods of time, waiting for a deer or whatever it is you are hunting to pass you for optimal shooting. There is the simple tree stand, one called the baby gorilla which is simply a seat with a strap to go around the tree and a web or messed area for your feet to rest on. You must hold very still so your prey cannot detect you or your movements. Even though you are high above the ground, some animals, deer especially, have great hearing.

Large Tree Stand -

There is also a Kong sized tree stand where you sit more comfortably with a padded backing and a wider webbing for your feet. It straps around the tree just as the baby gorilla stand does, but it has more room overall.

Various Tree Stands -

Other tree stands are more elaborate and can accommodate more than one person; they are more like tree houses than stands. They take more than the one man to set up and are usually made of wood painted with a camouflage and leaves. Along the same line as the tree stand is the tripod stand, which is a free standing platform on three legs, thus the reason they call it a tripod stand. It is also covered with a camouflage tent and has a small ladder that allows you to climb up into the above ground tent as it were. There are several windows which allow you and at least two other people to look out for approaching deer or other wild game you are hunting.

Trail Timer or Photo System -

An additional hunting supply you might consider bringing on your trip would be a trail timer or photo system which allows you to do a little homework before you start out hunting. Both of these systems attaches to a tree and can monitor motions and snap a photograph of what moved, and then store it in the memory for you to retrieve it when you return. This way you know when and where the deer or other game you are hunting has crossed this way.

One item that is most helpful to hunters, almost as helpful as the calls would be a feeder. There are several varieties of deer feeders available today, such as the tree stump feeder, in which the deer attracting feed is falling out the bottom of a fake tree stump. There are also hanging bags of feed and tripods set up to lure the deer out into the open with special feed they are attracted too.
