Living in an urban "oasis" like Southern California takes us away from a popular hobby-- hunting.
The closest to hunting some of us will ever get is to drive our Camo Hummer down to the Santa Monica Airport for the annual Barney's Warehouse Sale. Bargain hunting galore. You take your life in your own hands though in the parking lot across the street from Barker Hanger.
But growing up on the East Coast, you had to keep your eyes peeled for real hunters. And there was the annual take-home, where a large piece of venison would be stuffed into the freezer for our mother to later disguise it as beef, or something we'd surely eat.
But if you are into hunting (or even fishing), you probably realize that all the gizmos and gadgets needed to effectively pursue your hobby could get into the way of having a good time. Just look at the picture below. Stores sure make it easy to purchase all that gear, but never show you how to actually store it so you can find it when you need it.
According to The Hunter's Wife, a simple series of bins can alleviate the desperate search. But first, what kinds of hunting supplies need to be organized? According to the post:
- GPS units
- 2-way radios
- trail markers
- cover scents
- safety harnesses
- field dressing supplies
When you want to finally get all this organized (and avoid badgering your spouse with questions like "where did you put the decoys, dear?" - use a simple system. You'll want to organize various items into departments, purchase some shelving and plastic bins. Mark the bins with the following names (customize as you see fit):
- Hats & Gloves
- Extra Clothes
- Bags & Pillows
We can see this system totally working. Readers--- if you hunt, or have someone into hunting, what tips could you provide our readers?
