Whether you’re hunting for deer, fish, birds, or other mammals, you’ll need to take along the proper safety gear to protect yourself and others.

When it comes to hunting supplies, one of the most prevalent parts of the industry are hunting supply stores, as well as outdoor or camping shops. Another part of the industry includes gun stores, which often offer shooting ranges. Many of these stores also have online versions of the same type of merchandise available.

Hunting supplies and camping stores should carry everything that an avid huntsman needs. The main employee that a customer will work with is the sales clerk. The clerk needs specific training to work in the store, and if the shop sells guns or rifles, may also need a special certification to work with and sell firearms. Clerks should be able to help outfit their customers with all of the necessary outdoors gear they need to go trekking through the woods for deer, or the boots they need to wear when wading through a lake for ducks. They can also help customers pick through tackle, fishing rods, bows and arrows, and more. If the customer needs advanced archery gear, the hunting supplies store may need refer their customers to a specialty store. This store will have more expertise in bows and arrows, shooting range, targets, and other gear. A regular outdoors store can still outfit customers with the right shoes, clothing, tents and outdoor gear. Customers can also check online for cheaper equipment like army surplus gear, sports apparel, used shooting gear, and finding a custom knife.

Another part of the industry is the gun store. Gun stores often have shooting ranges, and knowledgeable gunsmiths that can help outfit hunters for any trip. Since hunting guns vary from others, a client may need special help finding the right scope, rifle and other equipment for shooting deer.
