I have never been hunting before in my life. I am hoping to get a chance to go this season with a friend. My problem is, I am not quite sure what all I need. My only problem is, being fresh out of college and in an entry level job, I don't have much of a bank to break. Obviously, a gun and optics. I was thinking about a Marlin XL7 in 30-06, and some cheap 3-9X40 scope. Then there is the camo that, for my purposes, could be picked up at Walmart. My question is, what am I missing that is necessary or what do you use, that makes your hunt more fun/successful? Thanks in advance.
