Spare tires are rarely checked. This time around, make sure you check to be sure it is okay. If possible, get a second spare…it might come in handy. Don’t forget to check your accessories like the jack and winch.
You should always be prepared to harvest some game when going hunting. A truck rack will be a convenient place for you to tie your prized catch making sure it is secure in your truck. Depending on the type of hunting that you are doing, a tonneau cover and winch would also be handy to have.If you plan on doing extended walking while hunting, a good pack should also be looked at.
Tonneau covers are practical accessories that are used to protect the truck bed during extreme weather and road conditions. You can use it to cover your hunting supplies and accessories. There are many types of tonneau covers for you to choose. A winch is a powerful tool that comes in handy when dealing with poor road conditions and pulling your animal out of an awkward spot.
If it is a winter hunt, don’t forget to get your tire chains. You also need to make sure you know how to put them on. You will need some bungee cords and chain tensioner that will keep your chains tight while in use. Gloves and a shovel for your truck will be handy. Never underestimate their use. You can get stuck in snow or mud and you will need them. It is always better to be safe than sorry when out in the woods.
When going on a hunting trip, a first aid and emergency kids is necessary. You should always have one in your truck’s glove box. The emergency kit should also include road flares and an emergency blanket. Something could happen that would make it necessary to send a signal for help. The emergency blankets are good because they help trap heat in allowing you to stay warm for a longer period of time.
