So you’ve decided to try hunting. Great! Now what do you need to go out and actually do it? We’ll assume you’ve read our guides on how to select a weapon, how to get a license and any necessary tags, and how to stay safe in the wilderness, but there’s more to hunting than having a firearm, a sense of adventure, and the government’s approval. You need gear, both for your own well-being and because hunting isn’t nearly as fun if you’re discovering that the clothes you mow the lawn in aren’t enough to keep you warm, dry, or safe from every cactus you pass on the trail.
