I will start this out by admitting we have a garage, so we aren’t forced to keep hunting gear in the house. However, I prefer to keep it easily organized and accessible. Much like living out of a suitcase, it seemed to be a time-consuming option to pack all of our hunting stuff in bins to have to sort through come hunting season. With our clothing and some gear in a standard closet, we can pack much quicker.
I bought a closet organizer from Amazon a few years ago and arranged the shelving in style similar to the picture on the box. At that time I was planning for the closet to store board games and kids toys. In retrospect, I may have been able to situate the shelving in a different configuration to better utilize the closet for the purpose our hunting clothing and gear, but it’s working out ok.
