***Test your equipment before you pack your traveling gear – wear the clothes and stuff that you will use daily – make sure that it is comfortable and that you are able to walk quietly as in the event that you need to stalk an animal there are no unnatural sounds. make sure your boots fit well and are broken in and that you keep the color as neutral or as dark as possible no light or white.
