Clothing & Equipment
For the Field: Shooting clothes should be light green, green or brown; camouflage is optional. Pack a sweater or jacket in case it is cool early in the morning and also underwear shirt. Do not forget to bring a rain coat (See table above for average temperatures.)
Shoes: Lightweight, ankle-height is all you need. Many shooters even wear sneakers. A Gore-Tex breathing shoe, like the Rocky Boot, is excellent.
Accessories and Gear for the field
Shooting safety glasses or sun glasses - they should serve as sunglasses and they should de be shatterproof. The green or yellow protective glasses that can be worn over regular glasses are good. They have a small side panel, which protects against glare. They are available in many shooting sports suppliers.
Lightweight hat - one with a wide brim is best.
Shooting gloves - this item is important to protect hands from hot shotgun barrels and nicks and blisters from reloading, breaking guns or activating safeties. Golf or batting gloves are a good substitute if you cannot find quality, sensitive leather shooting gloves.
Soft protective gun case for daily use - This is optional, we can provide you with one.
Shell pouch - one that will hold a box or two of shells. It can also be a belt-type pouch or vest. This is important specially if you plan to load the gun yourself.
Small field bag - to carry camera gear and other personal items into the field.
Insect repellent - especially for our summer season. Mosquitoes or other bothersome insects are very unusual in the field - you might take a small bottle of Cutter's Cream.
Camera - The area is scenic and photographic possibilities abound. We also offer a private service by a professional photographer.
Eveling dress - Clothing is casual. Slacks and sport shirts are all you need.
Band-aids or tape - for sore fingers from shooting.
