Hunting supplies vary with the type of hunting. The primary requirement in hunting is the hunting outfit. Whether big or small game hunting, camouflaging and comfortably warm jackets, pants and field cloths are important. Water-proof, odor-controlled, and insulated clothing is appropriate. There are special mountain shirts and sweat jackets for upland hunters.
Camouflage or blaze orange vests are suitable for big game hunting. Hunters involved in shooting can choose specially designed vests with shooting panels, shell pockets and pad protecting against recoil of the gun.
A fine pair of boots and socks is necessary for comfortable hunting. Neoprene leg wraps offer extra protection. Insulated gloves, waterfowl caps, face masks and caps with artificial leaves that match the hunting environment are available.
Camo rainwear is advisable in rainy and slushy conditions. Shotguns, rifles, replacement barrels and shell loadings should always be carried in safe transport cases. Gun scrubber, rust removals and cleaning brushes are essential accessories. Shooter?s rest, bipod stand or adjustable stools ensure perfect aiming. Target spots and boards are available that give the best opportunity for practicing before the actual shoot. Ear muffs, plugs and shooting glasses are the finest options for hearing and eye protection. Pouches, shell belts and decoy bags are used to carry bullets and other shooting accessories. Decoy anchors and camo tape would be useful sometimes. Those involved in bow and arrow hunting, are advised to carry bow case and arrow shafts for safe hunt.
Time-consuming long waiting shoots require tree stands. A variety of strong built stands, with or without steps and ladders and stands built on towers or tripods are also present. Tents and cab guards are widely used. Animal call devices are indispensable in hunting trips.
Hunters carry scopes and binoculars for a close view of the animal. Night vision binoculars offer advantage during night hunt. A range finder displays the range of target by simple measurement. Digital attachable hunting cameras with video-scouting system increases hunting pleasure. Outdoor communication is made possible by hands-free mics and radios.
