Tips for an Unforgettable Family Hunting or Camping Trip, by Lucy Wyndham

Taking the family bowhunting and camping are great ways to pass on your passion to your family. Getting young people involved in both hunting and archery can be highly rewarding, as the memories made will bring you closer together and last a lifetime. With proper instruction, the right gear, and a beautiful landscape, bow hunting can be an enjoyable family activity that can become a fun annual routine.

If you are looking to plan a camping and hunting trip for the family, the first thing you should do is pick a location. Then, you can begin to research what you’ll need for that particular destination in terms of gear, tools, and safety aids. By following these tips, you can lay the foundation for a truly unforgettable family hunting trip that will inspire young bow hunters for years to come.

Car Camping Meals Everyone Will Enjoy

One of the most essential elements of any camping or hunting trip is having enough food for the entire family. After all, you won’t want to skip any meals, as nutritious food will give you fuel to hunt successfully. Depending on how long you decide to go on the trip, you may want to consider bringing a fully packed cooler where you can freeze vegetables, meats, and even eggs. Some common car camping meals that will sustain the whole family include:

Making sure that you have different meal options to eat while camping will result in everybody being happy. Also, always remember to wash your hands before and after handling raw meat following your hunts.

Practice and Preparation is Key

In addition to preparing your food for the trip, you will also want to prepare your family more generally. One of the best activities for preparation is practicing using a bow. If your children have never been bow hunting before, it is wise to practice shooting in all shooting positions before you set out.

You should also pack target practice items and tools for extra fun. For safety purposes, you will want to bring along a first aid kit, an extra knife, a lighter, and spare flash lights. It is always better to be safe than sorry; if you have the extra room, you should bring as many tools and back-up necessities (like toiletries or granola bars) as possible.

By keeping in mind easy car camping meals and other means of practice and preparation, you can guarantee you that your family’s bow hunting or camping trip goes off without a hitch.
