What To Bring


Horse with Bow and Arrows

Gear up for Your Guided Hunts By Learning What to Bring Along

The price of your guided hunt allows for you to bring up to 60 pounds of personal gear, not including your rifle or bow. Extra gear will require an extra pack animal and will result in extra cost. Keep in mind that 2 small duffle bags are easier to pack than 1 large bag, so please pack wisely.

Below is a list of items Big Timber Outfitters recommends you bring to make your experience more comfortable and enjoyable. Be sure to keep the season and weather in mind as you pack, as temperatures can dramatically swing in a single day, so the ability to shed and add layers is essential to your comfort. Deep snow and extremely cold temperatures are the norm during the winter months. This is especially true during mountain lion season, when temperatures dip into the sub-zeros.
