STANDARD EQUIPMENT LIST

  • Rifle sighted in 2 inches high at 100 yards.
  • 40 rounds of ammunition, preferably the same as you have already practiced with.
  • We recommend the biggest gun you feel comfortable shooting.
  • Pair of quality binoculars preferably waterproof, 10x40s are the best.
  • BIC lighter
  • One good hunting knife.
  • One good day pack - keep your daypack small and light, the guides have the tools necessary to field dress your game.
  • 2 head lamps with extra batteries
  • Camera
  • If you wear contacts or glasses, try to bring an extra set.
  • Personal items - washcloth, toothbrush, chapstick, deodorant, prescriptions, headache medicine, and any other personal items we may have missed.
  • Sleeping bag that is good down to 0° below zero.
  • Rain gear - preferably not plastic as it is very noisy and rips easily.
  • Good pair of leather boots already broken in, Pack Boots, or insulated boots for our late season hunts.
  • A pair of shoes for around camp such as house shoes, tennis shoes etc.
  • 1 to 2 water bottles 16 oz. apiece.
  • Early in September you will need clothing that will serve double duty. Most often while riding before daylight the temperature will be below freezing; sometimes in the single digits. However, by early afternoon it can reach 90°. In the high mountains the weather can change quickly. Don't be surprised if the beginning of your hunt is hot and we may end  up in the snow.
  • For later hunts in October and November you will need to bring warmer clothes, wool or polar fleece are the best along with a good pair of gators.
  • All of your gear should fit in one duffle bag weighing 80lbs max. Not including your sleeping bag. Please no bags longer than 36 inches.
  • Beer, wine or liquor of your choice
  • Any special medications needs to be kept in your daypack
  • Game bags: four for elk, two for deer and two for bear
