Hunting is a big part of life for many people, it’s a way of getting back to nature, and experiencing the outdoors with friends. It’s also a pastime that carries with it some high costs, and certain types of hunting are only available at certain times of the year. This means that many hunters will find that they have a lot of equipment lying around that they are unable to use at different times.
Rather than having unused hunting equipment taking up space in your loft or garage, why not consider pawning hunting equipment at Hat City Pawn – you can either borrow money against the value of it as a short term loan to help you with cash flow at certain times of year, or sell equipment that you no longer need at a fair price so that other hunters can get access to it.
Different animals are in season at different times of the year, and while most hunting uses similar equipment, your area might not support the animals that are in season at different times, or you might prefer not to hunt certain animals. The following hunting seasons are mandated by the government:
April 25-26, 2015 Youth turkey-hunting weekend
May 3 – May 31 Spring gobbler season (wild turkey)
Starts Sept. 1 Black bear/dates vary for method and WMU
Sept. 2014 – Jan. 2015 Waterfowl/dates vary by species and zone
Sept. 15 – Dec. 15 Deer/archery (Note: archery season closes on Dec. 8 in WMU A)
Sept. 15 – Dec. 15 Fall turkey/archery
Oct. 13 – Oct. 17, 2014 Fall turkey/shotgun (in certain WMUs only); Monday – Friday
Sept. 2014 – March 2015 Small game and furbearers/dates vary by species and region
Oct. 1 – Dec. 31, 2014 Pheasant
Oct. 18 – Oct. 26, 2014 Moose (by permit only)
Oct. 25 – 26, 2014 Youth deer-hunting weekend
Nov. 1 – Nov. 11, 2014 Deer/muzzleloader
Nov. 12 – Dec. 7, 2014 Deer/regular firearms
At this time of year, there’s very little in season, and it will be some time before gun hunting returns to the calendar, so now might be a good time to review your equipment and either free up some cash to invest in newer hunting gear, or simply get rid of some older equipment that you no longer need.
If you’re ready to talk to us about pawning hunting equipment, come into one of our stores in Danbury or Norwalk, and we’ll provide you with a valuation for your equipment that’s fair and reflects the current market rates!
