Hunting success largely depends on the correct equipment of the hunter. Soaked to the bone and chattering teeth, the frozen hunter thinks about how to keep warm, not about hunting. The basis of hunting basics is reliable, lightweight and waterproof shoes, a light raincoat or cape, and in extreme cases - a sufficient piece of plastic wrap.
Membrane demi-season clothing is best suited here, but if you don't have enough money, then light, durable and waterproof equipment can be sewn (or glued) yourself from Bologna type fabric. Such equipment may consist of wide trousers and a short cloak. Harem pants are made on a lace with slits at the location of the trouser pockets. Harem pants should be wide enough to fit over any type of footwear or warm trousers.
A hooded cloak is made wide enough to be worn over a quilted jacket and other outerwear, and long enough to cover the slits for pockets in trousers. Such a set weighs about a kilogram and protects from dew, rain, and wind; it fits in a small pouch that can be worn on a belt or in a backpack.
For those who seek to lighten the weight of equipment as much as possible and create certain comfort when shooting, we can recommend a bandolier vest instead of standard belt bandoliers. Such a vest is made from any durable, breathable fabric, fastens with three or four buttons.
The nests for cartridges are made of wide linen elastic or elastic fabric on the left side in two rows, on the right in one row, 6-8 nests in a row depending on the hunter's build. The height of the position of the cartridge seats is determined in such a way that the cartridges can be easily removed in any position.
The back of the vest can be stitched with a pocket for storing spare socks, footcloths, a piece of plastic wrap or a Bologna set. On a hike and when shooting, such a bandolier is much more convenient than a belt belt. In cold weather, it can be worn under outerwear. If the hunter has to carry a backpack with him, then the pocket on the back can be omitted.
Before the start of the season, you need to check and sort the cartridges in stock. If they are not marked, they should be set aside for detailed inspection or recharging. Cartridges with retained markings must be calibrated with a calibration ring and checked by inserting into the chamber. If cartridges are forced into the chamber, they should not be hunted. Such cartridges are likely to be distributed in the air and can ruin the whole hunt.
The selection of hunting equipment depends on the type of hunting. After all, for hunting a bird or hunting a wild boar or coyote, you will need different equipment.
But there is something that you will definitely need for any hunt. This is thermal hunting scope. This will give you the best performance and range in dynamic conditions. You will be able to miss the target in time and not frighten off and get your prey.
