What to Bring
For the lodge:
Our accommodations include food and lodging in our modern full service lodge. The only thing you need at the lodge is personal items, comfortable clothes and shoes and any special snacks or drinks that may you prefer.
For the Hunt:
Archery Elk hunts take place in September and our Spring Bear hunts take place in May. These Months are usually mild to nice weather but can be unpredictable. You can normally expect 30-40 degree mornings and 50-70 degree days, but you need to be prepared for rain and possibly snow and cold weather.
The rifle combo hunts are late October through November. This season can be mild, but it is getting close to winter and snow and colder weather is common. We normally don’t see a lot of rain in the fall and we rarely experience subzero temperatures but you need to be prepared for it. Also these hunts may include a lot of glassing; you need to be ready sit and glass for long periods of time.
Mountain Lion and Wolf hunts take place in the winter months with snow and cold weather. You can be both walking and sitting for long periods of time.
Clothing/outerwear:Todays technology has blessed us with the most advanced outerwear ever produced. When researching your cloths focus your base layers on moisture wicking synthetic blends. Outer layers come in many options from wool, polyester and other synthetic blends; there are too many brands and options to cover them all. Cotton is really not an option for hunting clothes on these hunts.

- Boots- 2 pair ( water proof)
- Shoes- around camp
- Snow shoes
- Under wear
- Base layers- tops and bottoms
- Rain Gear- packable to put over outer layer.
