It's that time of year...the time when you deer hunters go out into the unknown and sit and sit and sit, waiting for the perfect deer to come by so you can snag him. I'm not a deer hunter, but I am a camper so I do have an idea of what you're going to need for your deer camp site.
Along with a "earthy" colored tent, you're going to need a few other things. Did you ever think about a 5 gallon bucket? Your probably thinking, "what in the world would I need a bucket for?" Well, what else are you going to put your Lugable Loo on? A Luggable Loo is the perfect thing to put on top of said bucket to do your business on.....your PRIVATE business!
What about strike anywhere matches? Got those?
Let me ask you a question. Have you ever gone deer hunting and dropped something important...something like your map or license...only to pick it up and you can hardly even see what's written on it because just as it so happens, you dropped it in the ONLY puddle of water for miles around. Then your going to need a Coghlan's waterproof pouch.
Maybe a portable heater for those cool nights? Right now, here at Bass Pro, we have a Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Heater on sale for only $79.97. Don't forget your 1lb propane tanks in order for your heater to work!
Adventure Medical has an awesome first aid kit just for hunters. It has everything you'll need for a 2-3 day trip.
Lighting is a must! Your going to want to see where your going and also perhaps, if you find yourself in a position of luck, you'll need a blood light. We have several different types of flashlights, and batteries to go with them, and for tracking your kill, a Mini Blood Light.
Along with sleeping bags, emergency blankets, freeze dried food, cooking and eating utensils, cots, chairs and tables, we have everything your going to need to make this hunting trip the best yet!
Why don't you come on over to Bass Pro Shops in Sevierville and let me show you how to make this hunting trip the best yet! I can't promise you a profitable trip, but I can help you have a safe and fun trip.
So, before you load up and head out, remember the camping staff here is waiting for you and your questions and/or suggestions. My list isn't all inclusive, but it'll get you started for sure.
Safe hunting...and camping!
