Gear — can we ever get enough? Let’s face it: Hunting and toys go hand-in-hand. The more kinds of outdoor pursuits you enjoy, the more stuff you accumulate. Fortunately, Plano has come up with a great solution, one that works well at home and on the road.
A number of years ago, I hunted with a dozen turkey hunters in Midland, Texas. The lodge had one large sleeping room and after the first day, the place was a mess. Keeping track of personal calls, vests, and the like became a nightmare. Luckily, I had brought a large cooler to take home turkeys (always the positive thinker) and quickly learned that I could put my gear inside the cooler, shut the lid, and know where everything was. I still remember that lesson and use a container whenever I’m on a group hunting trip.
Plano has taken this concept one step further with their Hunter Trunk. It not only stores gear well, but can be easily loaded into your pickup truck. Buy a couple and make one for turkey season, archery deer season, cold-weather waterfowl… you get the picture.
Purposefully designed, the amply sized carrier (37.75″ x 14″ x 18.25″) houses a hunt’s worth of gear. Outfit one completely for deer hunting, stowing binoculars, ammo, hunters’ orange, a stash of jerky, and much, much more. Pack another exclusively for waterfowling, replete with calls, shells, camo, face paint, and another selection of jerky (say, teriyaki).
Sportsman’s Trunks perform impeccably as activity-specific store- and transport-alls. The manly-molded Sportsman’s Trunk locks and loads like a shipping container. Oversized latches clamp down a fully removable lid, which snugs firmly on its hinges, opening and closing like a treasure chest. The lid and base are molded with grooves for sturdy stacking. Rounding out its fundamental features are a pair of durable wheels for hauling when it’s weighted-down with everything but the kitchen sink. In a nutshell, here are the features:
- Four lockable tie-down-strap compatible secure latches
- Completely removable lid for easier access
- Wheels for easier transporting
- Carrying handle molded into trunk
- Exterior 37.75” x 14” x 18.25”
- Interior 34.75” x 13.5” x 16”
