What You Should Bring: Clothing:

As you probably already know, weather in Alaska is unpredictable. No matter what time of year you come, weather can be unseasonably hot, cold, wet or dry! So prepare for the unexpected. Dressing in layers is imperative for comfort. That way you can add layers or take them off as necessary. With that in mind, here are some suggestions:

  • 1 Heavy Jacket
  • 1 Polypro-Pullover or Wool Sweater
  • 2-3 Warm Shirts
  • 2-3 Base layer undershirts (synthetic is better than cotton because it wicks moisture away, “cotton kills)
  • 1 Packable Rainsuit
  • 2 Pairs of Long Underwear
  • Socks and Underwear
  • 2 pairs of hunting pants
  • Warm Hunting Hat
  • Hiking Boots (leather, Muck Boots or ankle fit knee-high rubber boots)
  • For duck hunters, neoprene waders are warm and comfortable, but hip boots or even
  • knee high Rubber Boots will be sufficient
  • Gloves
  • casual wear for evenings at the lodge
  • toiletries

Note: There is no legal requirement in Alaska for wearing hunter orange.

  • Matches or Lighter
  • Several packs of pocket-size tissue for your day pack
  • Camera (photo and video)
  • Battery charger(s)
  • Extra memory cards
  • Reading materials
  • Garbage Bags for dirty clothes, boots, etc.
  • Gun oil & rag in a Ziplock bag
  • Soft Gun Case – to protect your gun from salt spray while traveling by boat to the hunting area.
  • Leatherman or Swiss Army Knife
  • Range Finder
  • Hand Warmers
  • Travel Pack of Baby Wipes for cleaning your hands after you have gutted your deer, etc.
  • Rope for dragging deer
  • Various Small to Medium Size Tupperware-like Containers (square or rectangular) can be useful for packing small loose items that otherwise might get lost in your cavernous duffel bag! They also come in handy for protecting fragile items you have packed and souvenirs on the way home that you do not want to get crushed.
  • Duct Tape
  • VHF Handheld Radio or similar
