Now that temperatures are warming up and the sun is shining longer, many of us are finally getting back into our favorite outdoor activities. From spring hunting to camping, it’s important that you have everything you need for a successful outing. If you don’t have them already, make sure to stock up on the following items to get through this temperamental transitional season.
During spring months, the weather can drastically change with a moment’s notice. From thunderstorms to balmy temperatures, you have to be prepared for everything when spending time outside during this season. Your clothing choices not only need to protect you from inclement or changing weather, they’re also a vital part of your hunting strategy.
While spring is the rainiest season, that’s no reason to stay inside. With other hunters staying indoors and animals feeling more concealed than usual, rainy days can be more successful than normal. To avoid the cold and uncomfortable feeling of being drenched throughout the day, it’s important to find the right rain gear to protect you.
If you’re expecting some serious rain, it’s better to be safe than sorry with rain suits that are made specifically to keep you dry. We provide everything from rain suits to rain ponchos to keep you comfortable while outdoors.
It’s not surprising that the season directly between winter and summer can bring fluctuating temperatures. To stay comfortable, it’s important to find lightweight, breathable, and moisture wicking clothing that won’t stick to you if it’s hot but won’t leave you shivering if it gets cold or wet. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, stock up on performance tees, waterproof pants, and lightweight jackets.
Spring marks the start of turkey hunting season, which means it’s time to bust out your camouflage. Turkeys have remarkably good eyesight, so concealment is a primary factor for hunting success. Even if turkeys aren’t on your list this year, consider spring a good time to reset and restock your camouflage.
You’ll want products with brown and white tones for the beginning of the season and products with greener tones for the second half, especially if you live in a colder climate. Explore both camouflage clothing and camouflage tools you can use to further conceal yourself.
For shooters who are gearing up for the big PRS competitions around the corner, make sure you’re walking in with your best scope. These products are all incredibly feature-rich for their price and will serve any competitive shooter well.
The beginning of warmer weather is a great excuse to grab your friends or family and head out on your next camping trip. It’s important to keep your supplies fully stocked though so you can spend your time enjoying the trip and not frantically searching for your bug repellent or flashlight. You can find everything that you need for your next trip from SWFA’s Camping department.
