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.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.
Congratulations on the genet! Looking forward to the others . . .
