Portable Ground Blinds with a waterfowl camo pattern are essential when a built-in ground blind for waterfowl hunting is not available.
Waterfowl Hunting Apparel and waders with a waterfowl camo pattern are essential for blending in with your surroundings and make setting up decoys more comfortable when suited up with waterproof hunting waders.
It is best to first determine the environment in which you will be hunting for waterfowl in order to make sure that you have all the the necessary waterfowl hunting gear
Are you going to be needing to set up decoys in water?
If not, you will need to purchase some sort of ground blind with a waterfowl camo pattern
Will you or someone you are with be able to call?
When used with waterfowl decoys, goose calls and duck calls help to attract waterfowl towards your blind.
As with any hunt, it is important to check the weather before you head out in order to determine which piece of hunting apparel is right for you.
While each waterfowl hunter has their own technique and considerations, here are a few pointers for gear to help you get started on what to purchase for your next hunt.
Waterfowl hunting conditions can be quite frigid, so be sure and layer your hunting clothing with a good set of warm baselayers and a warm hunting jacket, like a 3-in-1 jacket to meet changing hunting conditions.
Since geese and ducks tend to flock or swim together, it is important to set up life-like decoys like motorized decoys in somewhat of a pattern to attract waterfowl.
While a realisitic decoy is essential in attracting waterfowl as they draw near, a waterfowl call is important in calling them in from miles away.
If you have access to a built-in ground blind, it is best to store decoys in a locked blind for easy and quick set up for those early morning hunts.
*** As with any hunt, it is important to check with your local game and parks commission to ensure proper compliance with any state hunting laws as they can vary from state to state.
