Count on doing all your walking in hip or calf length rubber boots depending on where we go and water levels. DO NOT bring leather boots!
sleeping bag, lightweight down, etc
flashlight & batteries
lightweight slippers for cabin & flip-flops for sauna
Rifle and Ammunition: We recommend .270 as a minimum; 30 caliber preferred. We've had overall best results in the Arctic with .300 Win. Mag. Bring a firearm you feel comfortable & confident shooting. Bring 40 rounds of ammo same load.. Most shooting is done at 100 yards or less, but be prepared to shoot at distances up to 300 yds. I sight my .300 +3.3 in. @ 100 yds
Overall Gear Limit -Please try to limit gear to as close to 50 lbs. as possible. Rigid guncases are left in Kotzebue - bring a light cloth case if you wish. I recommend CAMOUFLAGE, GREEN OR BROWN JACKET & CAP for all hunts. Buy your gear before you get to Kotzebue & bring enough batteries for your equipment & two rolls of "Gorilla®" tape. I suggest an ice cooler to transport your capes, meat, etc
Alcohol - Guests should bring their own alcoholic beverages, as none can be handily purchased in Kotzebue!
Bring your impossible dream, you may find it hunting with us in NW Arctic Alaska.
