To help you prepare for your Manitoba hunting experience, Blue Skies Hunting Adventures has put together this list of helpful tips and suggested hunting gear.
Helpful Hunting Tips
- BE PHYSICALLY PREPARED: The better physical condition you are in the better your hunting experience will be.
- Montana weather can be diverse to say the least. Summers are generally dry and comfortable, with occasional thunderstorms, daytime temperatures in the mid-high 80’s, and cool nights. Fall ranges from pleasant days to below zero, with occasional snowfalls. Montana winters can be severe, sub-zero temperatures, typical conditions are near or below freezing, but above zero, with plentiful snowfall. Dressing in layers (including long underwear) is the best way to combat the cold.
- Be sure your boots are broke in prior to beginning your hunt.
- Mole Skin is a great item to keep in your First-Aid-Kit to help keep sore feet from stopping your hunt.
- ARCHERY HUNTERS: Be practiced up on shots from many different shooting positions and angles, from 20-50 yards for the best chance at bagging your priced trophy.
- RIFLE HUNTERS: for bear hunting, shots are no farther that 60 yards. For whitetail hunters you should be able to shoot 200-300 yards for the best chance at bagging your trophy animal. Also, be familiar with your bullets and bring extra.
