The Great Outdoors
presented by: Mark’s Outdoors
With deer season opening on October 15, now is the time to make sure you are prepared to hunt. Making yourself a checklist will help insure that you have everything you need to make your opening day a successful one.
- Go ahead and pull out all your camo and see if you have all the pieces that you need. Early season is usually still pretty warm. Make sure that you have plenty of layering options so you are ready for anything Mother Nature throws at you.
- Thoroughly check all of your safety gear including harnesses and hunters orange pieces.
- If you hunt from a shooting house, go ahead and make sure that nothing has turned it into a summer home during the off season. Insects are usually the main offenders so pack a can of wasp spray just in case. If you plan on using a climbing or ladder stand, inspect them to make sure that everything is still tight and in good working order.
- Last but not least, check your equipment. Inspect bows and rifles for anything that looks out of the ordinary or could become a safety issue later in the season. Here at Mark’s Outdoors, one of our experienced gun smiths or bow techs can look them over for you.
As always, Mark’s is your one stop shop for all things hunting. Swing by and let us help you make sure that you are ready to bag that trophy buck. September 25-26 we will be hosting our preseason Deer Show with lots of sales items. Look forward to seeing you!
