When it comes to preparation for a camping, hunting or fishing trip, we all know the essentials — items such as guns, fishing poles, tents and food. But there are other, less obvious items that are also important, especially if you’re headed off road.
Let’s look at four useful hunting, fishing and camping accessories for your next trip down the trail.
Space is usually at a premium when you’re preparing for a hunting or camping trip. You have to walk a fine line between having enough equipment and lugging too much stuff around. A good trail bag allows you to store your gear on the outside of your vehicle, freeing up much-needed room for extra equipment and supplies. It also doubles as a convenient receptacle for trash, allowing you to keep trails and hunting and camping grounds as clean as you found them.
If you’re riding to your favorite hunting or fishing place, a rugged and durable ATV cover is a must have item. A good cover provides protection from rain, snow and mud. It also helps keep your presence hidden when you’re ready to hunt. Camouflage covers are particularly helpful when it comes to stealthily concealing your vehicle.
Your favorite hunting or fishing spot might be as remote as they come, but it’s never a good idea to leave your vehicle behind without protection. A well-made ATV cable lock gives you added peace of mind, allowing you to relax and enjoy your trip without worrying about theft.
Bags and Coolers
For most ATV riders, a good rack bag is an absolute necessity. A good bag has enough space for tools, first-aid supplies and personal items. A great bag has all of that plus a cooler for food and beverages. You can ride with confidence, knowing you’ve got all your essential cargo at hand — plus enough food and drink to keep you going for hours.
Good preparation and the right equipment lays the groundwork for a successful hunting, fishing or camping trip. Consider these four items the next time you get ready to hit the trail.
