HUNTING AND FISHING CHECKLIST

8 posts in this topic

Is there anyway that we can get input on all the different items that we need to establish a checklist for hunting and fishing. Then have one of you puter wizzes make up a printable checklist. I for one would be very interested, because I always forget sometthing. Just a thought. Licenses, gun, decoys,food, clothing,binoculars,TP,camera. Just add your items and lets say in about 1 or 2 weeks someone could make up a list.

Go to Cabelas.com and they have pre-made gear lists for whatever your pleasure may be. Very handy, it's got a lot of extra stuff you won't need but they don't leave anything out. Also each thing on the list is a link that brings you to that part of their store. Very cool.

I have lists for:

Ice Fishing

Open water fishing

duck hunting

Archery hunting

Firearms hunting

turkey hunting

And probably a few more.

Just lists I jotted on paper and have in the front of my hunting/fishing journal. Talk about nice to have a quick reference list. If something new comes along, I just add it to the list. The lists have saved my butt several times.

I am little more concrete/sequential than the average person, I create lists in an excel spreadsheet, saved by the trip or season, and when I get home, I add (in red) the things I should have brought and delete the things from the spreadsheet I didn't need. Then when it comes time for another trip, hunting or fishing, I print off the list. each item gets a circle when it is packed, and a check in the circle when it is loaded in the truck.

From cabela's home page try this-Home > Outdoor Info > Whitetail Field Guide > You are here: Archery Deer Hunter's Gear List.

There are other lists on the page for other game and weapons.

Picks, I couldn't have said it better! I love Excel, have spreads for almost every season (elk, deer, turkey, walleye,etc.) and everyone in camp adds to it from year to year. It also depends on the person and camp...ie. I guarantee I bring a lot of stuff that others don't.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
