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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
