One thing to think about when setting a hunt-camp display in your store is how to display the products you want your customers to buy. It’s best to showcase products in a way that lets customers figure out why they need them, and how they could use them. 

Below is a list of six key items that can make a big impact in a camping display.

1) Cooler

A big cooler is an important component in any extended hunting camp where the goals are to cook and eat good food during the hunt, and to take home lots of quality game meat after it. The YETI Tundra 160 Cooler is a big cooler that will make a big impression. It will hold up to 100 12-ounce cans and enough ice to keep them cold for a long time. Hunters can imagine it filled with venison. 

2) Table and Chair

Put out a couple camp chairs on your sales floor and people will sit in them. Comfortable and versatile, the Browning Camp Chair is great in hunt camp, when tailgating before a big game and at a backyard barbecue. It is constructed with a powder-coated aluminum frame, has a weight capacity of 425 pounds and folds flat for transport.

As is often the case at home, a kitchen table can be the centerpiece for camaraderie at a hunt camp. The ALPS Mountaineering XL Dining Table is lightweight and sturdy, great for preparing meals, at mealtime and just for keeping stuff off the ground or easily accessible.

The folding aluminum top and anodized-aluminum frame make it ideal for outdoor use. It is 55 inches long, 28 inches wide, 28 inches high and packs down conveniently in the included carry bag. It weighs just14 pounds.

 3) Canopy

Not every camp is going to have a dedicated cook tent. But that’s not a problem when you have a ShelterLogic Slant-Leg Pop-Up Canopy. It measures 10 feet by 10 feet, offering appreciated shade and protection from the rain for your cook station, kitchen table or other gathering area. And you easily can add protection from prevailing winds by attaching a tarp or two to the sides. It has a powder-coated, beam-welded, collapsible steel frame and includes a wheeled storage bag.

4) Cot

Here is another versatile item that can stop traffic in a hunt-camp display. Disc-O-Bed’s XL Cot Bunk Beds can be used as a bunk bed for two people, as bunk beds for one person with storage space for his or her personal gear, as two separate single beds or as benches. A clever design makes it easy to set up without the need for bolts and screws, so you can quickly change the configuration to freshen your display. Each bed has a 500-pound weight capacity and packs down into its included zippered storage bag. 

5) Sleeping Bag

The Coleman Dexter Point 30-Degree Big and Tall Sleeping Bag is designed to be a good fit for people who are well over 6 feet tall. Seeing the size of this bag on display a cot might seal the deal with larger customers who aren’t comfortable in average-size sleeping bags. (The same thought process might be in play for people shopping for youth sleeping bags.)

6) Stove

Camp Chef does a good job with its packaging, including using large, colorful photos showing the cooking products in action and written details about the products inside, but even with all that the box the Camp Chef Expedition 3X Triple Burner Stove is packed does not do it justice. This beast of a stove includes a griddle that covers two of the three, 30,000-BTU burners. Moreover, it is freestanding, so it doesn’t take up any table space. Anyone who likes to cook in camp will start daydreaming while using this stove set up.
