What to Pack – Hunting

Below are a few suggested items we recommend you bring on your trip to Arluk Outfitters.

What to bring

Your gear should include a layered system of clothing to accommodate a wide range of temperatures and conditions.  It is not uncommon to have freezing overnight into the early morning and then increase to the mid-50’s by midday early in our season.  It is recommended to prepare for rain as it is not uncommon for this time of the year.  Blaze orange is not a requirement but we do recommend camouflage.  The best boots we have found for our terrain are knee rubber boots with a tapered ankle.  La Crosse makes this type of a boot and it is available through Cabalas.  We ask that your gear total no more than 60 lbs and that you bring a soft gun case to transport your guns on the helicopter to camp.  Down below is our guided hunting checklist of things a hunter should bring with them.
