You have all the necessary hunting equipment for your expedition, though you find your vehicle may not be quite up to par for trip. Here are some features to include when outfitting your rig to enhance your experience on any hunting trip:
Outfit Your Rig to Be the Ultimate Hunting Vehicle
A spacious, well designed cargo carrier can be an incredibly useful tool to have for your hunting expedition. The DU-HA Tote is a portable storage box that is designed to hold your gear, tools, rifles, shotguns, ammo and other necessary hunting items. It is meant to be stored in the cargo area of your vehicle or the bed of your truck and is also considered a legal gun case in most states. The tote provides a safe and secure way to transport up to four shotguns or rifles, its sealed lid keeps out moisture and dust, and can be locked for extra security.
Keep your guns and bows dry and safe with an interior, overhead rack. The Great Day Center-Lok is a system that allows you to effortlessly lock in your bow or gun, so it stays secure during your travels. There is no drilling required to keep the rack secure in your vehicle, as it utilizes opposing forces to create stability during its installation. The rack is made from aircraft grade aluminium and expands from 48 to 54 inches. Also, check out the Gator-Gripp for you hunting rig or your ATV.
Seat Covers and Cargo Liners
Keep the interior of your vehicle in-tact and free of stains that might follow you home from your adventures. Solvit makes waterproof covers, so your hunting dog can accompany you on your trip without tracking dirt and mud into the vehicle. There are a variety of sizes to choose from, with the option of adding on expansion vents. The covers come in a classic grey-green color, with a faux-leather trim accent to give it an upscale look that matches all vehicle interiors.
Since you will most likely be driving through rough terrain, you’ll want to make sure your vehicle is equipped with the best tires.

It also features tread cushioning and noise-capturing pockets for a quiet ride, so your trip is comfortable and you won’t spook the game.
