    Default Moose hunt kit

    The sheep hunt kit thread got me to thinking about moose hunting kits. I'm sure there are different kits for the different type of hunts. As a fairly new moose hunter (third season but first I was a non res so only a packer and last year I fractured my elbow during season) I'm curious as to what are considered must haves. I'm assembling my kit now and once I finish I can post my list. Not sure about weighing my kit since I don't have a scale.
    I think it would be nice to place your hunt them list your kit.
    Ex. Float hunt
    pack-details
    rifle
    tent
    etc...


    I'll get mine up soon.

    The biggest thing to pack with you is muscle in your sh-t, grins.

    Really all you need is stuff just like you would take on any other camping trip + your cutting tools and a way to haul out more than you brought in.
