Tips and tricks for hunting

First of all, I would advise you to listen to what everyone says but think a bit about the advice you get. It has helped me a lot in acquiring everything fromhunting gear to selectdog through life and the times I have chosen the wrong stuff, it is usually that I have listened to advice without thinking about how the person uses theirequipment who gave me the advice.

Primarily. Quality always pays off. Badclothes, binoculars that change the hit image, weapons that throw shots. The list goes on. Usually you get what you pay for, it's that simple.

Choice of clothes

Start by defining the need based on terrain and the form of hunting you will practice the most. For example, if you spend time on mobile hunting such as being a dog handler or stealth hunting, it is an advantage to have quiet clothes with good breathability. I personally exclude membranes in my clothes during this hunt so as not to get wet from the inside. If you will alternatively spend most of your time as a sniper or watchtower, a waterproof alternative may be preferable. You move less but can stay seated in tough weather without being able to interrupt or protect yourself in any other way than through the clothes you are wearing. When you are not moving, no sounds are created that can affect your hunting. There are no completely silent membrane clothes to be found. Full-colored or camouflage is a matter of taste, but remember to cover, for example, hands and face when, for example, bird hunting. Contrasts are visible!

Choice of weapons and aiming devices

At the beginning of my hunting career, I got a drill from my father when I turned 18. It would be equipped with a binocular sight and hook mounting. The advice I received was to buy a, for me, expensive binoculars sight at the time, a Leupold 1-5. After a short time, I realized that I needed a binocular sight with more magnification to be able to shoot at the top bird. When I thought about why I chose this sight from the beginning, I came to the conclusion that I talked to deer hunters and not people who hunted birds and needed more magnification. It has helped me later in life with my purchases.

Define the need and find the balance between the cost of weapons and ammunition. Caliber that can be good forall-round hunting I would say is 6.5x55 or 308. 30-06 has gone a bit out of trend in recent years. Of these, there are some good weapons on the secondary market that may be worth checking out.

Choice of other equipment

If you bought a weapon either new or used, the budget may not be enough for a built-in onepiston cam lifter. To get the facility in relation to the binocular sight perfect, you can then supplement the weapon with a detachable onepiston cam lifter. Furthermore, in your equipment, it is probably a matter of taste if you want to carry a lot or a little. Whatever is onebackpack something that I personally prefer. Feel free to fill it insupport clothing, food and of course onethermos coffee!
