WHAT TO BRING
Preparing for your Hunt
Preparing for your Hunt
THE PAPERWORK & WYOMING GAME AND FISH
Wyoming Hunting License, Conservation Stamp, Photo ID and Hunter Safety Card - if born on or after January 1, 1966. Make sure license and stamp are signed. They should be carried and in your possession at all times while hunting or fishing. Make sure license is also endorsed by outfitter.
Bring a gun that is adequate power for the game you are hunting. Expect shots from 50 to 400 yards and up. Whatever the caliber, know your gun thoroughly. Bring adequate ammunition for your firearm. We have access to an on sight range to sight your weapons in, if necessary, after you arrive at the ranch. Be sure to bring scope covers.
Bow, arrow, fixed blade broad heads - for archery hunts. We will have a foam shooting block to sight your bow in upon arrival to the ranch. Check Game and Fish for legal tension strengths.
Gather Your Hunting Gear
Game Bags - you are responsible for bringing your own games bags or purchasing locally when you arrive. **Be sure to buy the 4 pack of quarters for the game you are hunting - you should have a bag for each game quarter.**
Sleeping Bags - only necessary for hunts where we will be spike camping. Any type bag that is rated to temperatures as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit
Personal Gear/ Clothing - This list could go on forever, but crucial items are warm clothes that can be layered as temperatures fluctuate. Bring 2 pairs of boots, moisture wicking under layers, waterproof rain gear, multiple pairs of socks, cap or hat with ear flaps, light weight and warm gloves. Bow hunters need camouflage outerwear with face paint or head net and rifle hunters need at least one piece of a blaze orange hat or vest. Binoculars - as this is fairly open country, a good pair of binoculars comes in very handy! A spotting scope is also a good idea. Range finders are optional.
Survival Kit - Make sure you have these items with you at all times; compass, fire starting material, knife, folding saw, space blanket, orange ribbon for marking trail down to game, flashlights and rope. Waterproof bags are essential at keeping valuables dry. Cell phone will NOT work in most of the areas that you will be hunting, but most cell phone service carriers do work at the ranch.
Miscellaneous Items - prescription medications, first aid items, cold/ flu medications, extra eye glasses or contacts, headlamps, cameras, sunglasses, bear spray (may be purchased locally).
All meals and non-alcoholic beverages are provided. If you have specific snacks you like or wish to enjoy a drink in the evenings after the hunt, you'll want to bring that along.
