First, great forum!! I have been lurking hear for a while, going though the old stuff. Lot's of good info here.
A friend and I are thinking about going on a moose float hunt and I am trying to figure all the gear we might need or have to buy. We are on a budget so not trying to break the bank, but I don't want to be cheap on something and be regreting it while in the middle of nowhere.
These are some of the things I have come up with,
Tent- Cableas alaskan guide 4 person
Sleeping bag- not quite sure what to get here, maybe a Cabelas boundary waters bag. My friend had a Cabelas 3D bag that he likes.
Pack Frame- We both have Kelty Cache hauler frames and they seem to work pretty good but have never put a moose quarter on them before. Will they be up to the task?
Hunting pack- I have a few day packs but nothing very big. Is a big pack really needed on a float hunt?
Stove- Have a small canister stove. What do you guys take?
Rain gear- plan on buying some HH rain gear.
Waders- I have some Simms stocking foot waders for fishing but I don't know how good they would be for hunting. My friend has some neoprene waders.
Food- what do you guys take with you? Mountain house, that sort of thing or something else. We would eat moose if we can get one.
Camera- I have a sony cybershot, p-41, I think. What would be a better water resistant digital camera?
There are lots of things I don't have listed but these are the ones I was really wondering about. Tell me what you think. Any other suggestions will be appreciated, thanks alot, Jake.
