Hunting in the winter can be exciting, fun, rewarding and a real adventure, especially when there’s snow on the ground and the world around you looks like a sea of white. Hunting in the winter can also be exhausting, dangerous and a real drain on the system, meaning that you need to take every precaution to ensure that you stay safe, don’t get in to trouble and return home to your family with your hunting trophies and a big smile on your face after a few days of roughing it in freezing climates.
We’ve compiled some useful information from various sources here in New Zealand to help you prepare for the great outdoors, especially in winter! Whether you’re bird watching in the bush or hunting in the mountains, familiarise yourself with this useful information and ensure that you stay safe and warm and return to civilisation in the same health that you left in. Remember: failing to prepare is preparing to fail!
Take a look at our awesome new and totally FREE Outdoor Safety Information page for more information.
