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
I'll get mine up soon.
my float hunt must have is a rope come-a-long
Happen to have my list sitting here. This is my list I have used the last couple of years for my 10 day float hunt. I pack two totes, a black one and a blue one..
Black Tote-air pumps, rope, tool and patch kit, tarp, small grill (rack only), moose calls(magnet & bucket lid),duct tape, frame straps & extra fittings, bungi's,4ea propane, single burner stove, small fry pan, coffee pot, 2ea plastic bowels, plates, sporks and cups, med hatchet, bow saw.
Blue tote- tarp, hand warmers, small rope, games bags, 2 small camp chairs, head lamps, gps, binos, knives, small dish soap & spunge, can opener, big zip locks, G bags, matches & lighters, Johny's, Tabasco, T. paper, Mountain House meals and other snacks, gun oil, camara, ammo, wipes, first aid, playing cards, contacts & glasses, pen & paper.
Duffle bag- clothes, small tent, pads, s bag, waders, CROWN (hidden from my parteners!)
Frame pack & gun
Hope this helps! OBW, since I hunt the 15th-25th, no need for bug spray, head nets..
That's some good reading.

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.
I now have ashort list-
1 ton pickup truck (4 wheel drive nice)
hoist- 7 1/2 to 9 feet

pre-moistened disposable wipes
towels - 2 (disposalable if need need)
extra rope/cable for winch
extra connectors for the extra cable
pulleys - 2
small trailer to load moose in whole

Hope this helps,
