So night two begins with just the awe inspiring view of the blind site. Picture a steep canyon with just enough room at the bottom of the gorge for a two track. In the bottom of the canyon, the bait site. About 1/2 way up the side of the canyon, the most awesome machan type blind I have ever hunted. Anywhere. For anything.
Note, tonight Marco said bring a pillow from your room. What a blessing. A pillow, a down comforter. I am very comfortable in spite of the temps being in the 40’s (F). Not necessarily snug as a bug, but only occasionally chilled. I have wool socks, long pants, a fleece pullover, knit hat, and neck gaiter. Even though I am at the end of winter in SA, it behooves one to remember just how cold you can get sitting still, sleeping, being basically motionless in cool/cold weather. It pays to be prepared.
There are a few hunt reports on night critters (including one which I did a couple of years ago) and most of them say the same thing: be prepared! If you haven't got the right clothing, you will be miserable on a hunt like this, much more so than on a day hunt where at least you can move around, and the temperature will eventually warm up. I'd add one thing to your list which I would never go without: those chemical hand warmers but more especially, foot warmers. It's surprising how cold your feet can get when you aren't moving.
Congratulations on the genet! Looking forward to the others . . .
