General Rifle/Hunter Prep

A rifle capable of ranges to 300 yards (sights or optics) is needed. Magnum calibers are acceptable, but calibers in the .243 to .30-06 range are ideal. At least one ammunition management device (attached to belt, rifle stock, etc.) will be necessary. Bring eye and ear protection, all ancillary gear expected to be carried on your hunting trip, including day pack, water carriers (canteen, hydration pack), range finder, binoculars, etc. Other recommended items include sunblock, insect repellant, hat, lightweight jacket or sweater, and rain gear.
