In the olden days, guys like Theodore Roosevelt, Davy Crockett, and Ernest Hemingway set out on safaris and day hunts with boots and big guns. Nowadays, hunters have a whole lot more equipment they can choose from before they chase down those 30-point bucks. Do you think you know all about today’s best tactical gear for hunting?

It starts with the right clothing and weapons and ends with the gear that you need to get your kill home quickly and efficiently.
