Gear and Equipment

SHOOTING SAFETY GLASSES OR SUNGLASSES: 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 especially 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.

EVENING DRESS: Clothing is casual. Slacks and sport shirts are all you need.

BAND-AIDS OR TAPE: for sore fingers from shooting.
