GEAR AND WEATHER
We will be walking fields and actually
birds so proper fitting boots and clothing appropriate for the time of the year
are a priority.
The weather that time of year is unpredictable most everywhere. In September
during early season sharptail hunting it can be in the 90's or even
hotter. October - December can bring temperatures from 60
degrees and sunny to needing heavy winter wear. It is best to come prepared.
We suggest dressing in
layers especially during the later months of the season. Therefore, if it is a nice, warm day you can shed some layers, and add it again as
the day closes. Later in the season, we suggest planning for cold weather and possible
snow, but bringing a lighter coat in case the weather is mild.
Wear well-fitting boots - blisters can hamper the fun of the hunt. It's a good
idea to bring an extra pair of boots in case they get wet. You may want to bring
rubberized boots, whether just lower or all rubber, in case we get into wet fields. Warm
socks are a must. Thermal underwear and other cold weather gear is at your discretion. We also suggest safety glasses be worn, which we provide for your use
during the hunt.
Sixty-five yard shots are not unusual in this
country. We suggest bringing number 4 or 5 shot and your favorite 12 gauge shotgun.
Gear for your Dog
You might want to bring along a tummy protector vest and boots. If
your dog is not used to wearing boots or a vest, let him wear them a few times before the
hunt. You might also consider giving your dog a trim for the hunting season, especially if
it's a long-haired dog.
Your license can be purchased at various
retailers once you arrive. However if you'd like to purchase a
license online to hunt in
