My wife is from brookings. She has told me that people have gotten lost very easily because everything looks the same. All i can tell you is pack a gps unit and be safe. Other than that, i dont know much about how hunting is over there.
As awesome as that is, i cannot use that app where i usually hunt. There isnt any cellular service and it doesnt work unless there is service. At least for what i have went through. Thats why i use, or prefer, a gps unit that works with satellites. I wouldnt want to get into a dead zone and not be able to use it when i need it.
Thought it would be good to point that out should someone be on the fence about that.
My dad and i had no luck with making it work. Maybe certain phones? I already obtained a gps unit so i am not too worried at this point. If it works for some people, then awesome. Kind of a bummer but i think i would rather use separate devices. That way my phone stays charged for when i need it.
Thanks for the tip. If anyone asks, i got an answer for them.
Welcome to the coast. Be ready to get wet lol. Buy quality, lightweight raingear (I wear Kuiu/Sitka) but does not have to be super high dollar. Comfortable, waterproof hiking boots, lightweight to mid weight socks. It doesn't get all that cold on the coast IMO so you won't need Super thick socks especially if you're hiking a lot. The most important piece of equipment for coastal hunting, besides your weapon, is optics. Do NOT skimp out on optics, buy the best and most clear binos and scope you can afford. There's tons more advice I'm willing to give you. Shoot me a PM if interested
