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.
Sample Packing List
Knee-high rubber boots/waterproof hunting boots
Long, warm shirts and sweaters
Waterproof and breathable rain suit
Shoes for around camp
Warm jackets (wool/fleece)
Ammunition and/or arrows
Bow and/or firearm
Soft gun case for helicopter trip
Shooting stick/Trigger stick
Unscented shampoo, soap and sunscreen
What is not required
Bedding in our lodges is provided and it is unnecessary to bring sleeping bags.
In order to bring your firearm into Canada, the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration form must be filled out and brought with you for your hunt.
More information is available for Non-Resident hunters traveling into Canada with firearms at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police website. We recommend you review this site to ensure you understand the requirements for traveling to Canada and Arluk Outfitters for your hunt.
