How To Take Care Of Those Hideaway Blues
When you’re preparing for the next hunting trip, it’s easy to forget that not every minute of the hunting trip may be pleasant. In fact, there are portions of a hunting trip that can be downright boring. This often happens when you’re waiting for game to show, or even when the weather doesn’t want to play along. This could leave you waiting for the ideal target for hours with nothing to do. Falling asleep is not an option, therefore, some distraction might be in order.
The Ideal Time To Practice Those Knot-Tying Skills
Hunters are often embarrassed to admit that they didn’t collect their knot-tying badge during their scouting days, and this shows when trying to tie anything. Instead, print a few small slides off the Internet, laminate them, and carry them in the front pocket of your pack along with a piece of thin rope. While waiting for that elusive deer to pass by, this is a worthy distraction that will up your survivor brownie points.
If You Can Manage The Extra Weight In Your Pack
Photography and the wild always make a good pairing. In fact, many hunters turn out to be the ideal photographers as the key to a good shot is patience. Cloud storage lessens the burden on the pack as photographers backup their photos directly as opposed to lumbering around an additional bag just filled with storage devices.
Rest and Relaxation
As much as a hunting trip provides an adrenaline rush when the prey finally enters the scope, it can also be the ideal time to take advantage of the surroundings. If the hide supports freedom of movement, it could be a great time to focus on some breathing and stretching techniques. Yoga and pilates movements are ideal as they promote relaxation and increase strength. These are both beneficial to hunters.
Another great way to get those hunting juices flowing is by reading. Whether this is a fiction novel or a bit more about the prey or local area, the improvement of the mind will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the activity. Some great reads include bird books for the avid bird watchers, photography techniques for those who brought along their gear, or historical and geographical finds. Writing down the experience in a journal is also the ideal way to document the experience. Video logs or podcasts could be a bit noisy and draw too much attention to the hide.
With warmer weather right around the corner, it’s important that you know how to maintain your firearms despite the change in weather. Whether it’s a hot and humid day, or just dry, hot heat, your rifles’ require being taken care of with special attention. Here are some tips on how you can make sure you’re properly caring for your firearms in the warmer months.
Make sure they’re clean – If you’re a sportsman and you primarily hunt deer, your offseason is during the warmer, summer months .That leaves a few months’ time between seasons, which means that your rifle should stay clean during that time. Not properly cleaning our rifle before storing it in the offseason could cause fouling, rust, or other types of corrosion in your gun.
Put them in a case – Regardless of the temperature outdoors, it’s important to store your rifles in a locked, dry case. This is certainly important during the summer months because of the increased moisture in the air. Additionally, putting silica packets in your gun case can further help to prevent moisture from damaging your rifles.
Make sure they’re well-oiled – When you’re storing your firearms for long periods of time, it’s still very important to make sure it’s well-oiled. This helps to keep your gun protected from the elements and help to ensure it will still work properly when it comes out of storage.If you’re looking for the best selection of hunting rifles for sale online, check out our collection at AL Flaherty’s Outdoor Store today!
