When you head to the backcountry on a multi-day hunt, being prepared means more than having your sleeping gear, weapon and the right layers to wear. Keep the weight of your pack as minimal as possible with these essential items and you will be prepared for whatever you encounter out in the field.
5. Multivitamins + supplementsSpeaking of health, vitamins are essential to keep going for days in the backcountry. You’ll lose salt and other essential nutrients in your days of scouting and hiking. Fish oil and other supplements for joint health keep your knees and elbows happy. Electrolytes keep you hydrated; I prefer Hammer Nutrition’s line or Wilderness Athlete.
