    2 pair            Gloves                                Fleece or Wool Gloves  "Bear hunters, Get the Warmest"

    1 pair          Hip Boots*  / Hiking Boot       We are impressed with Cabela's Instinct Accelerator Hiking/Hip boot in one.     Note:  Reviews on this boot warn to order one size larger than your normal boot size.  I where a 10-1/2 to 11, so I have ordered a size 12 to testthis boot before recommending it.  The size 12 will fit well enough with heavy socks. The boot will work well for you, however, it does not have an ankle fit or laces to tighen it for walking.  It will be similar to an insulated hip boot, but with a light weight roll down upper that stowes nicely inside the gator.  We still like the Schnees Hunter II shoe pack for fall and spring bear hunts, although you will need hip boots for crossing steams. Another boot foot wader that works well on bear hunts is a insulated boot foot waist high wader. These (ez-pee) breathable waders will keep your butt dry when glassing and also get you across the streams. This is a good option, especially for a fall bear hunt where we try not to do a lot of walking.  Warm feet are very important, be sure and bring two types of foot wear and warm socks.

    1 set   Quality Lightweight Raingear   Wildman wears: Helly Hansen:  Rain Jacket* - Rain Pants  or   Bibs 

   * If you select a Hip Boot, You will need a 3/4 length raincoat or rain pants to keep the rain out. 

      Also, be sure to order your boots early enough to try them on and return them, if you find any flaw in the stitching or fit.

The basic camping equipment is supplied, but you need to bring your own:

            -  Hunting knife, sunglasses, good binoculars, digital camera, bug dope, headnet, shooting stix

            -  Rifle (300 Mag. Minimum) with scope covers, minimum 20 rounds Swift A-Frame Ammo.

            -  Quality synthetic sleeping bag with comfort range down to -10º F. (you'll be warm at 30)

            -  Soft gun case or gun sock, for rifle protection in our airplanes, 2 paper back books

             -  Day pack for carrying your lunch and raingear, mole skin, sunscreen (just in case!)

            -  Purification water bottle to carry with you on the trail, headlamp, flashlight, batteries

            -  If you smoke or chew, don’t try to quit on this hunt,  and bring plenty for the moochers

Transportation to and from the hunting areas is done by light aircraft, please keep your personal gear down to one #50 duffle style bag and your back pack, Tie your sleeping bag on your backpack and carry it on with your optics and valuables. Your rifle must be transported in a rigid, locking gun case.  This heavy gun case SHOULD be left with our air carrier in Anchorage, so bring a soft case to carry your rifle on to the lodge.  Your Ammo should be boxed and transported in your luggage. Liquor in spike camp is discouraged and not included in hunt.

Check with your airline for current baggage limits as well as ammo and weapon transportation rules.
