Having Fun With Friends

Do you remember the last time you had a great time spending the afternoon with family and friends outdoors? If you are like most people, you might think things like boating and playing kickball are fun--but only if you are fit and coordinated enough to participate fully. I struggled with having an enjoyable experience with recreation and sports, that is until I started concentrating on getting better at outdoors activities. Check out this blog for all kinds of advice on improving your ability to play outside with the people that you love. You never know, improving your kickball game might also help you to live a longer, healthier life.

Duck Hunting Bag: Stability And Safety

Recreation & Sports Blog

If you're in the market for a new duck hunting bag this spring, making a few modifications can improve both the stability and safety of your bag.

Here are some easy ways to get the most out of your duck hunting bag this spring.


When your duck hunting bag is more stable, you're more likely to move efficiently and quietly. Although most duck hunting bags for sale are relatively stable, making a few additional modifications can make a subtle difference you'll notice when you're on the hunt.

  • Chest Straps: Keeping your duck hunting bag snag against your back and shoulders is the key to stability when you're on the move. In addition to always tightening your shoulder straps before you set out for your hunt, you can also add an additional chest strap to prevent your duck hunting bag from jostling when you navigate tricky terrain or climb into your hunting blind. To add an extra strop, you'll need a small strip of velcro. Begin by looping the velcro around both shoulder straps. Next, tighten the straps so that the duck hunting bag becomes snug with your back. If one strap still leaves a gap at your neckline or lower back, add one more velcro strap. You can move the straps up or down to find the right fit for your duck hunting bag and your body type.


Keeping you safe on your duck hunting adventure should always be a top priority. When you purchase your duck hunting bag, you can add or enhance safety features that will keep you safe during your hunts.

  • Visibility: Duck hunting bags need to provide both visibility and stealth. This delicate balance often involves blending camouflaged patterns with reflective safety elements. For instance, you can duct tape reflective strips to the back of your duck hunting bag to make you more visible to other hunters. If you want a more permanent visibility solution, you can affix safety lights with carbines to the zippers and other compartments on your duck hunting bag.
  • Rescue Kit: Many duck hunts require traveling to remote areas where it can be difficult to quickly get help if you get into trouble. Before you head out on your hunting trip, it's always a good idea to include a rescue kit. This rescue kit should include first-aid supplies (band-aids, liquid stitches, butterfly bandages, athletic tape, etc.), survival supplies (water filtration straw, energy bars, etc.), and location tools (flare, GPS tracker, whistle, etc.).
