Download Your Own Whitetail Hunting Checklist

October 17, 2018 | Hunt

Check all the boxes—and fill in your own—to ensure nothing gets left behind this season.

When draw near to the whitetail opener, it’s easy to get caught up in the momentum of the season. Days are getting shorter, nights are growing colder and—if you’re like us—you’ve spent recent weekends sorting gear, sighting in rifles and digging your favorite cold-weather layers out of storage. You’ve spent the past few months e-scouting, setting up deer cams and planning just the right spot for your tree stand. And now your favorite time of year is nearly here; the work is about to pay off.
