The Great Outdoors
Presented by: Mark’s Outdoors
October 15, 2018 is opening day for bow hunting, which means it’s time for the final stages of getting your fields finished and stands placed. It’s also time to get your gun sighted in, and Mark’s Outdoors offers a free sight in with the purchase of two boxes of Hornady rifle ammunition. Before heading out, make a hunting checklist to ensure your first trip to the woods is safe and successful.
- License. First and foremost, make sure you have a current Alabama hunting license. If you are a license exempt hunter, meaning you are over the age of 65 or under the age of 16, you will still need a Hunter Exempt License Privilege (HELP) number. Your license or HELP number can be obtained in-store at Mark’s, or online at www.outdooralabama.com. Anytime you are hunting, have your hunting license readily available.
- Essentials.On Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6, 2018, Mark’s Outdoors will be hosting an in-store Deer Show with specials on the essentials for deer season. There will be sales on rifles, ammunition, bow hunting gear, scents, calls, and more! Be sure to stop by the clothing section for the layers you’ll need for any fluctuating weather conditions.
- Extras. If you hunt out of a stand, shooting house, or blind, you may find yourself with some slow stretches in the wee hours of the morning or afternoon. These quiet moments spent in the great outdoors provide an excellent opportunity for reflection. It is uninterrupted time you can use to improve your personal relationship with God by reading the Bible, doing a devotional, and soaking in the beauty before you.
As always, if there is anything you need to get ready for the season, call or stop by to see the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Mark’s Outdoors. Happy hunting!
