When it comes to gear, we believe that having the best possible is a must to help in a successful hunt. Below you'll find a list of gear we recommend for each hunt we offer.

GEAR LIST FOR ALL HUNTS:

  • Day Pack - (able to carry lunch/ water and gear comfortably all day) packs with some type of internal frame and waist belt are recommended

  •  Flash light and or headlamp, and a spare

  • Matches/ lighter

  • Water bladder or Nalgene bottle

  • Knife

  • Range Finder Binoculars

  • Camera/ video camera

  • Spotting scope (optional) - if you have one you are comfortable with bring it.

  • Rifle & Extra Ammo (bring enough extra ammo in case you have to re-sight in if your scope gets messed up during travel)

  • Bow & Extra arrows, broad heads, field points, Allen keys, and any other equipment you might need to work on your bow.

  • Game bags- enough for elk  and deer. I recommend Caribou Gear game bags or other similar reusable game bags (guides will have game bags but it is most convenient for them if you bring your own) 

  • Coolers to take meat home in never hurt to have.

  • Don’t forget all your licenses and tags!

  • Personal Items:

  • Medications/ vitamins- good idea to bring sore muscle cream

  • Mole skin (for blisters found at pharmacy often near foot items) Small first aid kit

  • Toiletries- toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.

  • Extra Batteries

CLOTHING: ARCHERY HUNT

Although archery season generally comes with mild weather and warmer temps than our rifle elk hunts it is still advisable to bring all of the layers that we suggest for cold weather. It is better to be prepared for the cold and dress accordingly if the weather is mild. So make sure to bring your layers and be prepared for anything. 

I suggest synthetic clothing and refrain from cotton (everything I wear including socks is non-cotton). You will be much more comfortable hunting all day in clothing that dries quickly. The following list is what we suggest you bring. Some examples of synthetic clothing are Kuiu, Polarfleece, Smartwool, Underarmor, Patagonia, North Face, Sitka gear; there are a lot of synthetic hunting clothes out there now. If you have clothes that you are comfortable in feel free to use whatever –

• Synthetic or wool blend hiking Socks (5 Pairs)

• Top Base layer (2)

• Shirts (long sleeve) synthetic (I like ones with a hood)

• Jacket

• Insulation layer (zip up polar fleece or similar) (1)

• Pants, a light pair and a heavier pair

• Bottom base layer- (polar fleece long underwear or similar) (2)

• Hat

• Beanie

• Gloves (one pair for really cold one pair lighter weight)

• Rain gear- packable lightweight rain gear

• Boots (waterproof) – Make sure your boots are well broken in and comfortable!!! It is also a good idea to have 2 pairs of boots       In case you get one pair wet, or if the weather is really warm, A light pair of hiking boots would be a good call.

• Swim suit (for the hot tub and sauna)

• Clothes for the evenings to relax in

*You will have the ability to wash clothes if needed

CLOTHING: RIFLE HUNT 

During the rifle hunt you may experience very cold weather, especially later in the season. This being the case it is extremely important to bring the right gear for cold/snowy weather. 

I suggest synthetic clothing and refrain from cotton (everything I wear including socks is non-cotton). You will be much more comfortable hunting all day in clothing that dries quickly. The following list is what we suggest you bring. Some examples of synthetic clothing are Kuiu, Polarfleece, Smartwool, Underarmor, Patagonia, North Face, Sitka gear; there are a lot of synthetic hunting clothes out there now.

CLOTHING: SPRING BEAR HUNT 

For our spring bear hunt weather is generally very pleasant and is often up into the 70's with the occasional day in the mid 80's! that being said, in true Montana fashion, it is not uncommon for the weather to turn and get cold and wet.  This is a hunt you definitely want to remember to bring your rain gear on. It is also a good idea to bring plenty of layers. lots of times we will be sitting and glassing for hours at a time, so it can get chilly.   

I suggest synthetic clothing and refrain from cotton (everything I wear including socks is non-cotton). You will be much more comfortable hunting all day in clothing that dries quickly.
