I'm also looking to start hunting the coming season. I don't want to dump a whole bunch of cash into the process until I've decided I like it. I've got a good pair of boots already and I'm sure I can borrow a rifle (until I decide hunting is for me and go acquire one of my own). I know I'll need some orange attire because apparently that is the cool thing to wear while hunting. What else would a beginner need? A gutting knife maybe? Maybe go to Goodwill and buy a coat that you don't care about getting blood on? Does one need arm length gloves or trashbags for covering yourself when gutting your prize? Anything else?
