Lifestyle Camo | Keep Your Investments Safe on the Road

Camo Gun Cases | Protecting Your Firearm with Style

If you travel very much during the hunting season, you probably have two problems. First, your legs and rear side get pretty weary of the long miles. But second, you need to make sure your firearm stays safe and contained while in transit. Our rifles, shotguns, or even handguns are often quite the investment on our part, so why take the risk of not properly protecting them? Besides that, it’s the law just about anywhere that a firearm needs to be in a case when in a moving vehicle.

Just like your favorite firearm, the protection of that gun can be overhauled into a camo gun case with your favorite Moonshine Camo pattern. There are a couple different types of gun cases available on the market. They include hard case, soft case, and cloth or other material options. In order to choose the best one for yourself, you need to look at your specific hunting conditions. Let’s look at a few examples.

Keep Your Investments Safe on the Road | Moon Shine CamoHard gun cases offer more protection in extremely rugged conditions or when you need to fly to your destination (i.e., have you seen the way some airline employees handle your luggage?!). They have a very sturdy shell that you can often lock, and the interior is padded with protective foam to nestle your gun safely. This is important if you want your scope to stay dialed in after traveling a long distance or over rough country. Quality hard cases are often expensive, but it’s better than a cheaply made hard case that won’t offer the security you’re seeking.

Soft gun cases are a great bargain buy since they offer more protection than cloth, but are cheaper than the hard case versions. They typically are made of a protective material, often with some kind of padding on the interior. They generally have a zipper opening and can easily be tucked away in the cab of your truck. Soft cases are perfect for toting your weapon between your favorite hunting locations, whether they are down the road or within a few hundred miles. Your favorite Moon Shine Camo patterns can be applied to these gun cases as well.

Cloth versions are obviously the cheapest and least protective option, but they do have some merits. For instance, it is impractical to carry along a hard case or even soft case on many actual hunts in the field. But if you’re likely to experience a little rain, snow, mud, or dust, keeping your firearm protected will help prolong its useful life and ensure it functions in the backcountry. You can easily carry along a cloth case and then roll it up and pack it when you need your gun. It’s a good idea to have one along.

While these examples mostly apply to hunting situations, you also need a good case to carry your handgun to the shooting range. Or perhaps you do hunt with it as well. Luckily, these cases also come in a variety of Moonshine Camo patterns, so you can rock your favorite one and represent your bold lifestyle. Camo patterns aren’t just for clothing, after all.

Of course, you can do more harm than good with gun cases without some simple precautions. Never put your weapon away wet or dirty if you can help it. The restricted air flow and moisture can cause rust to develop over time. If you’re in the field without any other option, you’ll have to do it temporarily. But as soon as you can, take your weapon out to thoroughly clean it and dry the interior of your gun case while you’re at it. Taking these steps should keep your firearm functioning properly for years, if not decades, without much of an issue.

How Moon Shine Camo Fits into Your Ice Fishing Plans

Outdoor Clothing for the Ice Fishing Enthusiast

Imagine a calm day on the ice where the sun is shining and the wind is barely a whisper. You don’t even need your shelter with you, and can just sit on a camp chair in front of your ice fishing holes. Suddenly a flag from a tip-up shoots high into the air, and you scramble to get over to it. The line is spooling out steadily, but you set the hook as soon as it pauses. After a good fight, you pull a very nice northern pike through the ice and re-set the bait for the chance at another. Life is good.

Though it’s been an unusual winter so far in terms of warmer temperatures, there are still opportunities for hard core ice fishermen and women to get out on the water. If you haven’t tried ice fishing before, you really owe it to yourself to go try it at least once. If you have fished on hard water before, then you know how addicting it can be. Perhaps the best part about it is that you can make it as extravagant or as rugged as you wish. A day on the ice could mean a several-mile hike, chiseling through feet of ice, and fishing with just a tip-up line. It could also include sitting in a deluxe ice castle watching television in your shorts, while cooking your favorite dinner on the stove.

First, you’ll need some warm clothing to stay on the ice for very long. Think cold weather camouflage clothing is just for hunting seasons? Guess again. Moon Shine Camo’s Undertow series fits in perfectly with any fishing activities, summer or winter. It features different shades of blue against a camouflage background. You’ll want a good polyester camo sweatshirt to keep your torso warm, which is where the Undertow camo pullover hoody really comes in handy.

Pair your pullover hoody with the Undertow camo black vest and your core is sure to stay toasty on the ice. It has PROTEK softshell armor and a stand-up collar to keep icy winds from sending a chill down your spine. You definitely need to keep your head warm while on the ice, as you won’t stay fishing long without a good hat. The Moon Shine fleece beanie is reversible, made of polyester, and will keep your head protected for long days.

As far as other gear, you’ll need a few more essentials. Find a decent shelter if you’ll be fishing a lot throughout the season. You’ll be very glad to have it when the mercury really drops. There are lots of DIY options, but a lightweight shelter on a sled is often the best option for portability. You’ll also need a chisel or gas/electric auger to drill your holes. Obviously you’re going to require ice rods, reels, and tackle appropriate for the species you’re targeting. Here’s a tip for new ice anglers: attend an ice fishing seminar at a sporting goods store. They’ll have lots of specific gear recommendations, will provide some tips and tactics, and can answer any specific questions you have.

When it comes to species to pursue, it will greatly depend on the lake you’re fishing. It’s a safe bet that you’ll find panfish (e.g., crappies, bluegill, pumpkinseeds, etc.) in almost any water body in America. Panfish are best targeted by a light rod and line, and using small ant-type jigs or 1/32 oz. spoons, either of which should be tipped with a minnow or grub. If you’re going for perch, sauger, or walleye, try using 1/16 to 1/4 oz. spoons tipped with a minnow head, jigging Rapalas, or rattle baits. It’s always fun to target northern pike through the ice using a tip-up system. Simply bait a quick-set rig with a large and lively sucker minnow, set the flag, and relax until the flag pops up! If you’re lucky enough to pursue trout (e.g., rainbows, brown, lake, cutthroat, etc.) through the ice, the best options seem to be 1/16 to 1/4 oz. tube jigs with white or olive tube worms, or similar-sized spoons tipped with a piece of cisco.

Just keep safety at the forefront of your mind. Ice fishing is by definition never 100% safe. But if you use common sense and follow these safety tips, you shouldn’t have any problems. Never go onto a waterbody your first time without first checking the ice quality. For early ice, take a chisel with you and aggressively poke the ice ahead of you as you walk. You may also want to wear a life jacket and some ice picks around your neck. Occasionally stop and drill a hole to check the ice thickness. Three to five inches should be sufficient for walking and even light ATV traffic. You should plan on at least 12 inches before considering driving a vehicle onto the ice though. The biggest safety tip is to always let someone know where you’ll be fishing. Hopefully these tips will find you on the ice soon!
