MEET RANDY NEWBERG: Elk (+ most other big game) hunting aficionado, conservationist, disapprover of all lawn and power tools, and walleye fishing addict. FOLLOW RANDY @randynewberghunter

 

For his show, "Fresh Tracks" (watch on YouTube and Amazon Prime), Randy's Fall hunting schedule is a busy one. Starting mid August and running through Late November/December and even sometimes into January - Randy places a huge amount of trust in his gear. See below for a few items he doesn't leave the house without + his mainstay gear that goes with him on every hunt.

 

 

 

4 ITEMS THAT RANDY NEVER LEAVES HOME WITHOUT:

  1. LEKI TREKKING POLES These poles are lightweight and compact, but a real life saver. Randy brings two along because in the backcountry, 4WD is typically better than 2WD. 
  2. A QUALITY MULTITOOL - Randy uses the Gerber line of knives and multitools. He finds that there isn't much out in the wilderness that can't be fixed with a multitool.  
  3. REUSABLE GAME BAGS - Randy uses the Caribou Gear reuseable game bags for storing and hauling meat upon a successful kill. As a dedicated meat-eater, he knows the importance of taking good care of meat from the moment the animal hits the ground. 
  4. QUALITY OPTICS - Having quality optics, such as binos, spotting scope, and rangefinders can save miles of wear and tear on your body over the course of a 7-day hunt. Randy trusts Leupold optics for his hunts and employs a patient strategy of finding the best glassing knob on the mountain and staking his claim for hours on end. It's a strategy that seems to continue to work for him.
