These Are the Items Every Hunter's Home Should Have

What would a perfect hunter's home look like? 

There's a lot of things that tell you you're in a hunter's home. Deer mounts on the wall, duck calls on the counter, and probably a pair of muddy boots or two lying in the entryway.

But there's more that can be done, some subtle, some not so much. Each one will make a home even more hunter-centric, because each one is from Sportsman's Guide, the king of authentic sportsman goods and hunting gear.

Hunter's style and function

What if we told you that every piece of wooden furniture in this photo can secretly and securely store your firearm, out of sight and out of the way?

The line of CASTLECREEK Gun Concealment Furniture is ideal for a hunter's home. Guns are important to a hunter, but there are always legitimate reasons to keep those guns out of reach and eyesight. But, a gun is useless for home protection if it isn't still nearby.

Here's a shot of all the hidden shelves and compartments revealed:

The CASTLECREEK End Table features two hidden pull-out drawers for hiding guns or important valuables. The matching dark cherry wood Bookcase and Coffee Table work well for their intended purpose, but hold a secret only you know about. The Wall Shelf with Hooks is a nice compliment piece, or can stand alone on its own as your main source of firearm concealment.

What about spicing up your couch and chair with some new, relevant patterns? The awesome Furniture Covers, available in Mossy Oak Camo, are the way to go. Anyone who comes over to watch the game or check out your trail cam photos is going to instantly appreciate the touch. 

What's in the kitchen?

Every hunter's home should have a Guide Gear Food Dehydrator. They're perfect for making jerky out of wild game meat, but their use doesn't stop there. Dried fruit and veggies are good camping or hunting snacks.

Go for the 6-tray option if it's just you and a smaller harvest per year, otherwise opt for the upgrade and get a 10-tray.

The daily grind

Where do you stand on grinding your own meat? Many hunters swear by the DIY approach, and prefer to have the necessary equipment in the kitchen so they can butcher and prepare their game meat the way they want.

A Guide Gear 575 Watt Electric Meat Grinder could do the trick, but the Guide Gear Pro Electric #8 Meat Grinder is a wise choice if you have a larger hunting camp and need to take care of bigger game animals like elk or moose.

There's always going to be things that give a hunter's home away, but if you add these to yours, you're headed in the right direction.
