Four must-haves for hunting season

Canadian Tire is your one-stop shop for hunting equipment

As summer draws to a close and the leaves start to fall, many people are starting to direct their attention indoors, with visions of evenings by a fire, wrapped in a warm blanket.

But with hunting season now underway, just as many are making their way out to the wilderness in search of big game. Before you run out to join them, however, you should make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment.

Fortunately, you can find everything you need at Canadian Tire’s Vernon location. Here are four hunting must-haves that will ensure you’re ready to tackle the great outdoors:

  1. Clothing. Obviously, if you’re heading out into the wilderness, you need to make sure you have proper clothing that can withstand whatever you encounter. “We have a pretty wide assortment of Huntshield and Rocky branded camouflage clothing, boots, hats and gloves in both mens and womens sizes,” says Brandon Friesen, firearms specialist.
  2. Firearms. Canadian Tire’s hunting pro shop carries a wide selection of firearms in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes, for any age of hunter. And if your firearms need some repairs or just some fine-tuning, their new gunsmith is on location to help you out. “If you need gun work done, we can do that in house,” says Friesen. “It’s one-stop, so you don’t have to go to multiple locations.”
  3. Reloading equipment. If you want to save costs that come with buying factory-assembled ammunition, Canadian Tire has a range of reloading equipment including primers, powder, and cases for you to fine tune ammo to your specifications.
  4. Optics. Now that you’ve got your firearms and hunting attire, it helps to be able to see what you’re shooting. The hunting pro shop has everything from rifle-mounted scopes, to binoculars, to spotting scopes, so that you can head out knowing you won’t miss a thing. Friesen recommends the Bushnell Elite scopes, which are currently on sale.

“As the owner of the Canadian tire in Vernon, we have made a special effort to make our store a one-stop destination for our outdoor customers,” said Grant Turner, owner of Canadian Tire’s Vernon location.

“With that in mind, we have created a great sports department with a new large firearms section that contains everything hunters and target shooters could need, including top quality experienced staff, over 500 firearms in stock, loading materials, clothing, accessories and now professional gunsmithing.

“We hope you enjoy our offering and hope to see you often!”
