Best Travel Gear For Hunters On The Go

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

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
