Post-hunt Camp Care

Modern Pioneer - - Mobile Camp -

Af­ter a hunt, it’s easy to get home and dump all of your gear in the garage. Don’t do that. Putting a rolled-up tent away for months that has even the slight­est mois­ture on it can re­sult in a ripe, un­ap­peal­ing sur­prise when you un­roll it next time. Other things, like worn-out lantern man­tles, dirty stoves and any gear that’s used and abused dur­ing a trip should be at­tended to be­fore be­ing stored.

It’s ex­tra work, and not much fun, but do­ing so will pre­serve your ex­pen­sive gear and en­sure that you’re ready for your next trip. Skip the post-hunt camp-care steps and you’ll re­gret it in the fu­ture.
