Whitetail season is nearly upon us in Tennessee! When the season finally opens, don’t you want to make sure you’re 100 percent prepared for it? There are a few steps you can take to ensure that you will be ready to go once the season starts. By starting your preparations now, you won’t have to miss a minute of the action.
Inspect your equipment.
Does your rifle need to be cleaned, or does your tree stand need to be repaired before you take it out in the field? If you don’t take a good hard look at the equipment you’re going to bring on your first hunting trip, it might let you down when you need it most. The last thing you want to do is get out early for your first hunt and then find out that your gun is suffering from a stubborn mechanical malfunction. Now is the best time to take care of these general maintenance items. We can help you with your preparations here at Top Brass Sports, Inc. We offer ultra-sonic gun cleaning services and bore sighting for your scope. If you don’t have a scope, we can order what you need. Then we can get it mounted and bore sighted for you.
Try on your hunting apparel.
Chances are, you haven’t thought much about your hunting gear since you threw it in a box at the end of last season. Take a moment to pull your clothing out of storage and make sure it isn’t damaged or otherwise in need of replacement. Try it on to make sure it still fits comfortably as well. Finally, be sure to wash your hunting clothes with unscented detergent before putting them to good use.
Plan your first hunting trip.
Once you have all your gear ready to go, it’s time for the fun part—planning out your trip! Check with your local game warden to find out about any changes that might have been made to the public hunting grounds in your area. If you’ve hunted on private land in the past, reach out the property owners to make sure you can hunt on their land again this season. If possible, visit your favorite hunting grounds early to get the lay of the land and scope out the local deer populations.
