5 Safety Tips For Hiking During Hunting Season

Considering hiking during hunting seasons? If so, here are 5 Safety Tips For Hiking During Hunting Season – a guest post by Kevin Steffey.

hiking during hunting season

Hiking is an outdoor activity that really tests the character of an individual like no other activity that I know of. It requires a high level of physical strength and mental alertness at all times. With all your hiking gear fitted into your hunting backpack, your strength and endurance levels are expected to be top notch in order for you to successfully carry your luggage along a hiking trail all through your hiking expedition.

It is easy to forget that you are out in the wild and at the mercy of mother nature with many more dangers lurking in the shadows than in the concrete jungles of big cities that most of us are used to.

Before you to go out hiking, it is mandatory that you apply the old boy scout motto of “be prepared” as your watch word. Being prepared for a hike should be second nature to you and this is especially true if you want to hike during hunting season.

Preparation for a hike does not only entail that you have all your life saving gear stashed in your hunting backpack but also that you carefully and patiently adhere to these five safety tips.

#1-Do Some Research

The first tip revolves around your understanding of your preferred hiking area. If you are hiking in one of the recognized hunting states, then you should be aware of the annual hunting season. This should be your first real safety and precaution step. You can get information on the various hunting seasons that occur all year round in the area by confirming from relevant state agencies like the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Depending on where you intend hiking, you could have small game seasons such as peasant season or big game season such as deer season. These hunting seasons attract hunters from across the country. Your preferred hiking location is more often than not expected to be a bee-hive of activities during these hunting seasons. You should also check for firearms and bow hunting seasons as well.

#2- Wear Bright Colored Clothing

After you have done your research and you decide to go hiking during a hunting season, you should make sure you dress appropriately. Wearing bright colored clothing is the second safety step you should adopt. The preferred colors you should wear are bright red or orange. Do not put on clothing with earth-toned colors such as brown, black or white.

If you have a pet dog accompanying you on a hike, make sure it is always on a leash and kitted with a bright colored vest or sweater. This way, it is not mistaken for fair game by a hunter.

#3- Be Alert Always!

Thirdly, you should know that hunting laws vary from one hunting state to another. So you should always be alert and on the lookout for any signage that could just prevent you from being vulnerable and in harm’s way when hiking during hunting season.

#4- Make Some Noise!

As a fourth rule, you need to be clearly audible at all times when you are out hiking. Let anyone and everyone around know that you are on a hiking trail. The American Hiking Society actually recommends that when you are out hiking you should yell out – “Hikers on the Trail!” This will alert hunters to your presence and ensure that they act with more caution.

#5- Hike During The Day!

Lastly, if you must hike during hunting season make sure you do not hike at dusk or at dawn. It is important to remember that these are excellent times for hunting and in the cover of darkness, shapes and colors become difficult to distinguish and a hunter may mistake you for a game.

You should also try to avoid vying off a popular hiking trail as this will leave you exposed. Try hiking towards sites with a high altitude. Hunters don’t venture to high altitudes as it’s a no go area for wildlife. Besides, the view from high altitude areas is also a magnificent sight to behold and will add extra value to your hike.

Hiking is great fun and you should enjoy always hiking. However, while it’s fun, it can also be dangerous and you should never take the risks for granted. Always seek out current information about a hiking trail from hiking websites and blogs where you can also get useful tips from experienced hikers about a hiking trail and read through comments and testimonials from hikers about their personal experiences.

At the end of the day, your safety comes first and having fun, a close second!

Bowhunting : What Size Of Arrows Do You Need?

Bowhunting Basics: What Size Of Arrows Do You Need? By Guest Blogger Jennifer Walls

Hunting is one of the best activities I am able to do during my spare time. I get to release tension from stress, and have a breath of fresh air while I’m out in the fields! It takes skill and practice to become a great hunter, as you need good estimation and coordination in order to hunt and kill your game.

Of course, it will also benefit you to have the right equipment. For beginning bowhunters, you’ll definitely need the arrow to target your game. But do you know exactly what size of arrows do you need?

I used to be confused about arrow size and dimensions too. That is why I want to help you out and lessen your frustration when choosing the right arrow for your fit. So let us see the perfect size of arrows you will need when hunting!

Different Arrow Sizes

Contrary to popular belief, there are different arrow sizes and brands. These depend on the type of bow you use. Different bows come with different arrow designs in order for you to easily shoot your target. Plus, the type of arrows you need will depend on your build and strength, as they have weights as well.

You will learn how to choose your arrow depending on comfort and preference. That way, you’ll have an easier time hunting and will be able to hone your skills efficiently without risk of injury. But the question remains: What is the recommended size of arrows for you, and how will you be able to test it out?

Define Size of Arrows You Need

hunting arrows
Based on Learn Archery, an arrow size refers to the spine (stiffness) of the arrow, and the size or diameter of its shaft. Basically, it is all about the size of the spine, rather than the length of the arrow itself. This will determine how the arrow will hit your target. You will need an arrow with the right length and size.

 

Choosing The Right Size of Arrows

Based on Archery World:

1. Choose the right arrow length

This can be done through adding 0.5 inches of your draw length. To determine your draw length, you can check calculations online (which may be inaccurate), or check it in your local archery shop. Based on Hunter’s Friend, It’s best to get an arrow 2 inches longer than the arrow length you calculated in order for safety.

2. Choose the right arrow weight

Choose your arrow weight depending on what you will use the arrow for. If you are using it for steady targets or practice, then it’s recommended to have one that weighs 5 or 6 grains per pound of draw weight. If you are targeting game, then it should be 6-8 grains per pound of draw weight. You can check the recommended amount of draw weight for you depending on your size and age. The average is usually 40-45 pounds.

Choosing the size of arrows for beginners

Bullhead arrowsAn easier method would be to visit an archery store to have your arrow size determined depending on your bow and build. If you are just a beginner, then you can use trial and error with the help of an assistant and draw bows, measuring the distance of the grove hole and mark you made when drawing the bow.

There are other methods you can use if you are doing it yourself. You can use a measuring tape in order to mark your arrow length to get the size you need.

It may seem like a complicated process, which is why it’s better for beginners to ask trusted professionals or assistants who will be able to help them. As you advance and learn more about the other features and terms of hunting, you’ll be able to choose better arrow sizes suitable for you.

If you are a beginner at hunting, then it’s best to get the right arrow size! With the right arrow size, not only will you be able to hunt properly, but you’ll have a better and easier time targeting your game. You will be able to find the right arrow size and models for you when looking around your local sports store or online.

What travel gear to pack for your adventure

travel-checklistSo you are wondering what kind of travel gear you need to pack for your next adventure travel. Summer is almost here and that usually means adventure and travel for almost everyone. Needless to say if you are traveling you need necessary documents and a valid passport. But we will not bore you with paperwork here because once you are there it is the travel gear that you packed with you that counts. So what goes in your suitcase? Here is what we found as being the most important and useful gear.

Travel Gear Checklist

  • A water bottle because water is very expensive especially if you are going to Europe. A perfect bottle would be for us the Camelbak 60 second purification system which helps in refilling from anywhere anytime.
  • Some sort of GPS system especially if you are going to a place you have never been and do not even speak the language. That coupled with a guide of the place and you should know your bearings and where you are headed to plan a great experience.
  • An adapter or converter if you have electronics that you need to charge. That is one travel gear that will give you peace of mind and less time on the road finding a converter.
  • A multi-tool is a travel gear companion especially if you plan to go on adventures when abroad. You never know what you will need it for. Maybe as a can opener, a screwdriver, scissor is needed at one point. take one.
  • An absolute must, unless you hate memories is a good quality camera. Phones have a somewhat good camera these days but if you plan to venture out and go on adventures, get a hands-free camera.
  • Headphones are one travel gear that will use at the airport, on the plane, off the airport and sometime in between your plane back home.
  • A day pack or waist pack for your needed and most used items during the day away from the hotel. You need something small enough to carry your stuff and change of clothing but not too big to be in the way of your fun.
  • Sandals! Trust us, your feet will need a rest and some air at one point.
  • A lightweight jacket or hoodie as a precaution against a change of weather or sudden temperature drops.

If you are going with the intention to experience a certain activity, camping, hiking, cycling, kayaking or whatever it is that you like, then you will need to pack your activity checklist as well. God knows how much it will cost to rent or buy this stuff over there. Say a tent? can you even rent one? Whatever gear you need include in the above travel gear packing list.

Avalanche Safety Tips – Winter Focus

Avalanche safety tips: The North Face Patrol 24 ABS Avalanche Airbag PackOur Focus on Avalanche Safety Tips this month is inspired by the Outdoor Retailer Market show of 2015. On Day 2 Avalanche Safety bags were a big feature according to a recap video at Backpacker Magazine. Showcasing the new model of The North Face Modulator ABS, we see a unique and adaptable system that can be combined with any bag which makes it versatile and yes maybe number 1 to come this year. What does this mean for you? It brings us to focus some attention on Avalanche safety tips in the backcountry.

While many people go adventuring in the backcountry unaware of a possible avalanche, it is good to be prepared beforehand with a little knowledge to save yourself. In short an avalanche can happen when snow clumps fall from cliffs onto the slope and accumulate in momentum or when there is water melting or rain in warmer temperature. Breaks in snow slabs which can be the result of a snow storm can also set an avalanche and can be more dangerous.

When referring to avalanche safety tips, there are many factors involved so there is no one formula. Terrain slopes, weather temperatures, different layers of snow have a huge impact in the cause of an avalanche. But just because you adopt a familiar terrain, it does not mean you can allow yourself to take a lot of risks.

So here are some avalanche safety tips to consider before you go.

  • Check the avalanche danger report before you leave please
  • Stay alert for any observable avalanches happening around you
  • Keep an eye for snowballs falling down a slope
  • Be aware of any cracks under or around your feet / skis
  • Pay attention to hollow ground as you step

These are signs that you should look for other grounds or turn around.

Other avalanche safety tips include some essential gear to have on hand.

Pieps Avalanche BeaconIn case of an avalanche or dangerous signs as described above, make sure you communicate with others in your group to alert everyone of the dangers. Also have an avalanche personal beacon on you, also known as transceiver just in case something happens. This helps locate you in the worst scenario.

ABS Avalanche Rescue Devices Vario Base UnitAnd to prevent yourself from being buried under the snow, invest in an avalanche airbag pack or vest if you plan on backcountry skiing or snowboarding. The compressed air will inflate your pack to help you rise on top of the avalanche. This gives you greater visibility to those looking for you assuming you set your beacon on to maximize your chances of rescue. Because when the avalanche hits, it is sure to be panic time. Make sure you are equipped with the minimum gear to save yourself.

If you need more avalanche safety tips and gear, the experts at REI have written a 4 phase article on the topic. Check out for more at Avalanche basics part 1.

How to Sleep Better at Camp when it’s Cold

What to do and how to Sleep Better at Camp when it’s Cold you ask. Camping is all about fun. It is a time to relax and bond with your family and friends. But first things first. When you go camping and want to sleep outdoors, it is important that you sleep soundly and comfortably. So here are some tips that will surely help you to sleep better at camp:

Camping by moonlight

A good start is to have a gear (a pad, mattress, cot or hammock) that sufficiently cushions you and protects you from the cold ground. Be sure to use 2 full-length pads to keep from losing body heat on snowy or cold surface so you can sleep better at camp. Sleeping pads are designed to provide comfortable support to your back and protect you from rocks or sharp objects on the ground. Pads are rated by R-value, the higher the R-value the better. So always check the R-value before buying sleeping pads.

Sleeping pads come in different platforms as follows. For camping choose the one that most fits your adventure and needs to sleep better at camp. Here is the rundown.

  • Self-inflating foam pads are comfortable and compact. They are often used by most campers and hikers simply because they are relatively cheap and lightweight.
  • Air beds use air for cushioning. These are comfortable and lightweight.They are suitable for car or boat camping.
  • Foam Pads are lightweight, inexpensive and durable also used by many hikers and campers.
  • Air mattress resembles home mattresses. These use air for comfort and are much thicker than foam pads.
  • High density foam mats are the basic foam mats used in most swags. Quick to use and comfortable.
  • Closed cell foam mattresses are firm sleeping pads. The first mattress that added comfort and safety for campers in a lightweight form. They can either be folded or rolled after use to save space.
  • Cots are camping beds that keep you a comfortable distance from cold or rocky ground.
  • Hammocks are more comfortable and light without the floor contact. Most hammocks are designed for only one occupant.

In order to sleep better at camp, here is some advice that it doesn’t hurt to apply.

  • Eat something before getting inside the tent. Not too much- just enough to have some calories to burn and convert to body heat.
  • Stay hydrated. Keep hydrated during the day and avoid drinking lots of fluids at night. You can better warm the air around you in your sleeping bag if you have an empty bladder.
  • Wear dry clothing. Wear a hat, long underwear and dry warm socks when sleeping to keep you a little bit warmer at night. Choose clothing layer that wick moisture, dry quickly, insulate and are waterproof and breathable. Hang your other clothes from a branch or use it as a pillow to take up dead air space.
  • Sleep with your boots on. Use boots with removable liners, so you can put those liners at the bottom of your sleeping bag to keep them warm.
  • Take a short walk or exercise briefly before sleeping.
