MISSOULA, Mont. — The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation unveiled an interactive, online gear checklist designed to assist hunters be fully prepared as they head afield.
“This is the quintessential checklist for the elk hunter,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “It can be customized for the rifle hunter or bowhunter and be adjusted according to the length of a hunt.”
The Gear 101 checklist is located on the RMEF website. It allows a user to create an individualized checklist by clicking on one of three options: daytripper, multi-day or outfitted. From there, categories include clothes, food & water, meat care, overnight gear and hunting gear.
Users highlight the tabs most appropriate to their preference, click “download PDF,” and then print that list and use it to prepare for the hunt ahead.
“With all of the latest and greatest gear, so much on our minds before a hunt, I find it critical to have a system to double-check that I don’t forget the smallest of detail,” said Kristy Titus, RMEF Team Elk featured member. “Trust me, I have been on a hunt where someone forgets their tags and has to drive hours home or to the nearest town to pick them up.”
Specific gear from conservation partners who support the RMEF and its mission are included as a benefit for users.
“Our sponsors have years of experience in developing effective, quality products that benefit the elk hunter so it only makes sense that we feature some of those,” added Decker.
