Only if your archery hunting. If you can shoot out to 600ish yards, you won't need anything other than glass, your rifle, field dressing kit, appropriate clothing and boots. I kill 2 or 3 pronghorn every year, 2 are does. I won't shoot a buck anymore unless it's pushing or over 80" or a freak, but I live here in Wyoming and kinda know where they are.Thanks. Kansas, I am a native so I know the weather is nearly unpredictable out here. Good tip on knee pads. How about decoys?
