What to Bring Hunting

The weather during the summer season can change several times during the day, so proper planning is necessary to stay comfortable. Temperatures can vary from low 50’s in the morning to high 70’s in the afternoon. It is always important to dress in layers. One of the most important factors is having a good waterproof outer shell. This not only keeps the water out, but acts as a good barrier to also keep the wind out. A good quality Gortex rain suit works very well.
