Hunting Equipment for the Novice & Experienced Hunter

Aug 18, 2007
When embarking on the sport of hunting it doesn't take long for one to become very familiar with the necessary and required hunting equipment. Depending on the type of hunt, clothing, decoys, calls and ammunition can all differ. Aside from the basics, some people will swear that a particular piece of equipment is crucial to a hunt.

Others might not ever use that piece of equipment. It is not uncommon for a hunter to devise his or her own personalized hunting gear over a period of time. This allows a person to hunt with confidence, security and a feeling of stability.

The debate between whether to buy gear at a department store or at a sporting goods store continues to be a center of controversy. If a store specializes in outdoor sporting goods you will usually find a larger assortment and quality of items not found anywhere else. The sporting good section of a department store will offer a general selection of items that are much more affordable.

If you are hunting on a budget department store prices are usually your best option. This is especially true when the same item found in the specialty store can be found for considerably less at the department store. It is often necessary to make the purchase from a specialty store for high quality equipment or specialty items. But you most likely will not be able to find it anywhere else.

While some companies only make one type of hunting equipment or only one line item, there are other companies who create numerous lines of gear. Many offer items from clothing to tree stands. Deciding on a piece of equipment can be much like choosing a new TV or coffeemaker. There are so many different types and brands, it can sometimes be overwhelming when making the right choice.

Fortunately, one of the most valuable tools available for hunters are hunting equipment reviews. Websites dedicated to hunting oftentimes have areas where one can solicit the opinion of other hunters that are familiar with a certain products or pieces of equipment. The honest and open opinions of these individuals can help to narrow down the available choices.

Hunting equipment is not only for hunters. There is also a wide variety of equipment made just for hunting dogs. A blaze orange hunting vest can keep your dog safe when flushing pheasants in the field. In addition, dog booties can help keep the his feet from getting frostbite on those wintry hunts.

One important piece of hunting equipment to have is a canine first aid kit. Accidents can happen for a dog during hunting just as easily as it can for a hunter. There is nothing worse than having one's best hunting buddy injured and not have a way to help him when this happens. Be sure to buy a kit that come completes with not only first aid items as well as booklets that show how to deal with different types of injuries.
