    Start packing! Have you been buying last minute items or are you pretty well set?

    It's too early to pack, but not too early to lay out all your stuff.

    I head out in 38 days and I have packed and unpacked twice. I keep thinking of ways to save space or I find something else I need.

    I brought too many clothes on my first trip. They really do get it washed every evening. I would bring three sets (though two will do). Bring whatever boot you will hunt in (lighter is better - I love Russell PH's) and something casual for travel and the fire pit. Most important thing I had was a polar fleece pullover in olive green and a wool sweater. One or the other or both handled the worst cold mornings and late nights in a leopard blind. Most importantly, they are totally silent.

    You mean you have not packed YET! Get packing.


    My wife washed and repacked my bag when I returned last year so, I'm already packed and ready to go.

    I have most of my ammo in a small pelican case in my checked luggage. A small pistol case with 2 boxes in my wife's checked luggage.

    Good luck to you!

    Part of the fun of any hunting trip is the organizing of the gear in anticipation of leaving. But, no matter how many trips we go on and no matter how little clothing and gear we pack, it will always end up to be much more than we actually need. . . funny how that works.

    Have a great time and shoot straight!
    There is only one degree of dead . . . there are many degrees of wounded
