- Quality Clothing and Boots: Prepare for the conditions with quality gear—nothing will stop a hunt faster than being cold and wet. Kids outgrow clothing quickly, so watch for used stuff at tag sales or online.
- Snacks and Drinks: Hunger is second only to weather in cutting hunts short. Trail mix, jerky, cookies, and bottled drinks keep kids out there longer.
- Handwarmers: There is something magical to a kid about opening a pack of handwarmers on a chilly morning. Be prepared for the questions about how they work. —M.P.
