Layering your clothing is very important. However you can go overboard. You want to be dresses to travel on foot, then a coat or jacket to keep you warm while sitting or riding, then rain gear if necessary. If you bring a heavy coat be prepared to leave it at camp or on your horse as it will be too warm while walking. You should also bring moleskin, molefoam, and medical tape (foot repair kit).
Before hunt begins, contact us for specific equipment recommendations.
Feel free to bring reasonable amounts of alcoholic beverages, in plastic or cans. Contact us with food and beverage requirements and/or preferences.
