Default Game Shooting

How well you blend in and what you carry makes all the difference in the world when it comes to taking that perfect shot. (Photo)

Camouflage.....
The stripes on a fish, the shape of an insect, skin patterns, seasonal color changes of the deer, light, dark variations of the birds and fish,
all aid in their concealment into the environment.

Like nature, we must mimic and blend in to our surroundings so our subjects are less likely to take notice and bolt!

Diddy bags help us carry our emergency supplies and items while traveling about.
Bottles of water, rehydrate us during long or hot treks.

Binoculars enable you to zoom into areas of movement to get a closer view of perhaps an encroaching subject.
This one happens to be fitted with a fleece sleeve to tuck hands into for cold weather use.

"The Very Basics"
A compass "The most important" Item you must KNOW how to use and carry each and every time you go out!
Knife
Flashlight
T.P. or tissues
Trail mix-Snacks-Sandwich
Lighter -matches in a waterproof container

Don't forget to pack the camera, extra chips, batteries!!!

Wearing Camo is “very deceiving"

I like to use this larger bag for the longer hikes.
It bears the weight of the binocular and duo water jugs upon your waist, not your back and is large enough to house the camera should it rain.

The adjustable straps (Which I doodled in to show you where they are located) can be tightened should you take off a layer of clothing while traveling in the back country.
They can also be adjusted long enough should you want to sling it over your neck-shoulder area instead for easy removal when you're doing a lot of crawling around on the ground.... Taking mushroom photos for instance.

I forgot to mention....
I also carry a small can of pepper spray in my pocket should I need to protect myself and a whistle in case I do become lost.

I carry a smaller Diddy bag that slings over the shoulder for shorter trips out in the field.

This version carries ONE bottle of water and excludes the large binoculars but also carries the very basics.
A Flashlight, Pepper spray (in the top pouch) T.P. or tissues, Lighter -matches, Chap stick, compass with whistle, Knives, Trail mix - Sandwich.
It too has just enough room to pocket the camera inside should the need arise.

As you can see I have added a few (not so necessary) items...But they're nice to have should you want them.
Insect repellent, sunscreen and a pen and paper to take notes where a species or subject has been sighted.
