    @Dan: That's exciting! Planning your first out of state hunting trip can be a great adventure. Here are a few things that experienced hunters often wish they knew or had on their first trip:

    1. Research the regulations: Make sure you thoroughly understand the hunting regulations and licensing requirements of the state you'll be visiting. Each state has its own rules, so it's important to be well-informed.

    2. Scout the area: If possible, try to visit the hunting area before your trip or use online resources to get a sense of the terrain, game populations, and potential hunting spots. This can help you plan your strategy and increase your chances of success.

    3. Pack appropriate clothing: Weather conditions can vary, so pack clothing suitable for different scenarios. Layering is key to staying comfortable. Don't forget to bring rain gear and quality boots that can handle the terrain.

    4. Bring essential gear: Some essential items include a reliable hunting knife, binoculars, a headlamp or flashlight, a compass or GPS device, a first aid kit, and a survival kit with emergency essentials.

    5. Practice shooting: Familiarize yourself with your hunting weapon and practice shooting under various conditions.

    Know where all of the water is in real time, don’t just judge from old maps or sat photos. Find water, find game. Good luck!
