you are traveling by plane or land
vehicle, you will have different
considerations for your hunting
site. By plane, you need more
items furnished at the site
so traveling isn't a huge task and a
security check nightmare. If you
are lucky enough to travel by vehicle,
you can carry most of your needs with
you. If you have a year 'round
lease, you can visit the site several
times and set up things just the way you
want them from linens to blinds (as in
deer blinds and duck blinds).
Whether by plane or land vehicle, pack
any prescription medications in
carry-on or close by. Always pack
an extra day or two of prescription
drugs, in their original containers.
Shoot!, you may be having so much fun
you don't want to leave, or, who knows,
but you will be ready. Most small
town pharmacies can give you a pill or
two, and even the big chains are
accommodating if you have tried to be
prepared but get caught short.

Check out our "Organizations"
page. Click and look at their
websites. Look there for folks who
belong to national or international
organizations and advertise with
them for hunters. Most of these
organizations have ethics codes and
standards that will make you
comfortable in making your choices.

one on one conversation about your
expectations and desires.
