    Getting Ready For a Hunting Trip

    Posted on: June 5th, 2017 by Randi No Comments

    The first time a person goes out on a hunting trip, it is a truly amazing experience and eye-opening lesson in what to really pack for the trip. Most people have unrealistic expectations of what to bring, whether it’s hunting in the woods or backpacking through the hills, and packs can be heavily laden with useless things. What to bring into the woods always depends on length of stay and the overall conditions of the environment. Understanding the weather, type of terrain, and water sources available are the first steps before planning a trip.

    Most people rely upon guided hunting trips for their first experiences and usually the instructor, or guide, will explain all that is necessary to bring for the length of the visit in the woods. Others decide to just go into the hills alone, or with a few friends, and if nobody is an expert, then it is necessary to understand what to bring from the beginning.

    Make a List and Check It Twice

    Once a person knows where they are going and what type of animal they will be hunting, then the next step is to make a checklist for supplies. First, it is best to decide what to bring. Then, it’s time to gather up the necessary gear and check off everything to make sure nothing is forgotten. Forgetting a valuable piece of gear, especially a GPS, can be a costly and, sometimes, dangerous mistake to make.

    The Important Stuff

    Speaking of GPS, that is an essential item on the list. Along with a multi-tool, a nice sharp knife, and a good backpack with a frame, these should always be the first items on the list for anyone going off into the wilderness for more than a day hike. If the plan is to stay out for several days, make sure that a decent tent and sleeping bag rated for the elements is on the list. A good water filtration system is key if water is not potable. Also, bring enough clothes to cover the trip and make sure to bring long johns if the nights are cold.

    Rounding Off the List

    Anything else brought along depends on factors like if a person is going to cook and what type of weapons will be used in the hunt. Bringing game bags, tools to repair weapons, game calls, and decoys are all essential items in the world of the hunter enthusiast.

    Foto Friday: Calendar

    My calendar is crazy. So, I’m excited to start using my Erin Condren. I’ve already started putting some things into it for next week. I figure separating my work life from my personal life will help me out a lot more. I’ll be better organized and more anxious to accomplish things (because my planner is pretty!). I’ll be able to clean up this mess a little bit because I can take all personal things off of it and it won’t look so overwhelming.

    My Very First Erin Condren Life Planner Unboxing

    I did a shaky unboxing video for my brand new Erin Condren Life Planner. I am so happy with it and I can’t wait to start using it.

    Damn it!

    Last week I was peer pressured into getting a planner and joining the planner community. I’m not too mad, I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I wanted to do it. I’m really excited. I placed my order for an Erin Condren Life Planner at on Friday. It shipped today so it should be here by the weekend, hopefully. Maybe I’ll do an unboxing video for it since I grabbed a couple of other things with it. I’ve already started to look at washi tape and stickers and I might start making my own.

    I then turned around and passed the addiction to my mother and sister. My mom ran out and picked up a Happy 365 Planner to get started. I’m excited to see what she does with hers.

    I have started to plan out my weeks and create structure to add to my planner when it comes. I want to get myself on a cleaning schedule and meal plan. I can’t wait and now I regret laughing at whttrs when she filled online shopping carts with hundreds of dollars of stickers.
