Ammunition / Ammunition Case And Holders / Scope / Rangefinder / Bipod / Harness / Spare Parts
You may ask why is this in the number 1 position. Well, we are not going for rank-based in this post today, we are just going to mention the necessities.
As you guys are here, I think we don’t need to make you guys understand what ammunition/bullet is. You guys must have owned or owned a certain ammunition type for your gun.
But most people think 1 spare magazine full of ammo is enough for a long hunting session. Well, you couldn’t have been more wrong.
It never hurts you to bring extra ammo in your backpack. Because you might fail some shots which is normal. So its always a wise idea to bring extra ammunition with you.
Ammunition Case And Holders
Ammunition cases can be good for many reasons. You can track your bullet numbers how many you have left.
Also while taking your gun you should always de-load the mag and put your bullets inside a case holder so the bullets stays in one place.
They don’t cost that much neither do they weight that much so it’s not a bad idea to bring them along with you.
The most important part of a hunting rifle. You can’t hunt without a good scope. let’s be real this is not an anime where you no-scope or iron sight your targets.
You need a good rifle scope for your rifle to hunt properly. For that, we have reviewed several scopes here with different price range in targetchaser.
Check them out find a good suitable one for your choice. We also reviewed some good night vision scopes. If you are into night hunting then a good night vision scope is a must-have in your bucket list.
If you’re not in tight budget then there is some cheap rifle scopes which will blow your mind.
Most of you guys should be well known with laser rangefinders. It’s true that we didn’t review many laser rangefinder (yet) on our site. You may ask then why are we mentioning it?
Well to answer that even if you are hunting alone have no rangefinder buddy with you, not everyone is professional or knows how to find range accurately using the built-in rifle reticle.
So for those people especially who doesn’t have a scope with a built-in rangefinder you guys need to have a rangefinder. Trust me you will thank us later.
Because rangefinder can be a blessing in disguise for long-range hunting. You can determine the accurate range for you to take the shot and nail it.
Bipods are really good accessories to have with you.
It can help you conserve your energy by stabilizing your gun and relieving your arms from holding the gun for too long.
No matter what type of hunting you are into but if you plan on long-range hunting which needs more focus to aim and shoots accurately bipods are a must-have item.
Harness or gun holster is a special type of belt which helps you carry your gun easily and makes sure you are not losing it from your shoulder.
If you are planning on having some extra ammos in your harness you can do that too. So it’s a good thing to have. Also, you can wear them that’s a plus. You get more stuff to carry which we will mention in a bit in this the 7 best must-have hunting rifle accessories.
We are at the last item on our list. Spare parts, they can be of anything. Like you take your car your car has a toolbox which has tools for your car repair if it breaks.
The same thing should apply for your rifle and scope maintaining right?
So for that reason, you should always bring some spare parts and tools to fix your rifle if it clogs or break downs in the middle of hunting session.
