TOPIC: Check list - getting ready for the hunt tomorrow

Check list - getting ready for the hunt tomorrow 2 years 2 months ago #36758

Hey Folks..

Tomorrow is opening day here and I am going to hit the woods early.

I just went thru getting everything together and ready for my trip tomorrow and thought it would be good to post a list and find out from you all what you pack along and what all you get ready before going on a seng hunt.

1.. Seng Digger (long handle hoe type)
2.. Seng Bag (what I carry my harvested root in)
3.. Snake Boots
4.. Ruger & ammo (never know what you might run into)
5.. My lucky Shirt, Pants and hat
6.. GPS (new batteries)
7.. Printed topo map
8.. Old Fashoned Manual compas (for quick north reading)
9.. Repel 40% deet bug spray - chiggars and skeeters
10. Permanon (for Ticks)
11. Fanny Pack (to tote stuff in)
12. Can of Beenie Weenies, crackers, 3 granola bars
13. Lots of Water
14. Cell Phone on charge now for full battery tomorrow

Note...I print off a second topo map and mark with highlighter exactly where I am going to hunt. I leave this one with my wife so at least someone else knows where I am going. I do this when hunting alone.

I bet some of you are getting ready for a hunt soon.

Looks like a pretty good list to me - do you all pack anything else or do anything else to prep for a hunt ?

Good Luck tomorrow or when ever you get to go everyone !

A good set of \"looking glasses\" helps out a lot.
