Best Travel Gear For Hunters On The Go

When it comes to traveling near or far to hunt, these five items will make your trip easier.

Whether you're headed out of state, out of the country or maybe just out of town to deer camp, hunters invariably do a lot of traveling. Heading anywhere, with firearms, important documents and the like, takes special gear to ensure you and your equipment arrive safe and sound, and that you have the right items with you to stay connected and make your stay more enjoyable. Here are five items we've seen recently that will make that trip to deer camp, Africa or wherever, a lot easier.

Traveling sportsmen require a lot of documents, and keeping everything organized and clean is a pain. Magpul recognized this problem and created a solution: the Daka Pouch, a zippered container made of reinforced polymer infused fabric with a water-resistant zipper. It's available in small, medium, and large sizes. Welded construction on all seams creates impenetrable seals that keep out dust, dirt, and grime, PROTECTING THE IMPORTANT STUFF. What's "important" we'll leave up to you.... $19 — $28; magpul.com

You LOVE YOUR FIREARM as much as you love your firstborn child.... OK, maybe not that much, but it still holds a special place in your heart. The White Wing Label cases treat your shotgun or scoped rifle with respect when you're traveling. The cases are made of heavyweight duck canvas with leather trim and a shearling inner liner to protect your guns from bumps and scratches. Choose between eight different colors. $230 each; whitewinglabel.com

The comforts of home and hygiene don't have to be left behind on your next overland adventure. Showering, cleaning dishes, and rinsing backstraps are easy, thanks to the Helio Pressure Shower.

The shower rests on the ground and stands 17 inches when in use and packs down to 5.5 inches for easy storage. $100; nemoequipment.com
