Keeping a supply of clean water is the key to keeping your hunt going longer

For Outdoor Life Editor-in-Chief Andrew McKean, making sure he has plenty of clean drinking water and water to cook with is at the core of maintaining a smooth-going hunt. Before departing, he packs at least two massive Camelbak bladders with drinking tubes, in addition to a large Thermos of water for using at camp to cook and clean with. But if those supplies dwindle, he is forced to scrounge for a water source. By using either a small portable water pump, or a carbon-filtered “Lifestraw” water purifier, he can extract water from nearly any source while combing through the Montana backcountry.
