Iam planning on taking two carribou hunts one in 08 and the other in 09, followed by a moose hunt in 2010, then I would like to do a goat or sheep hunt in 2011 or 12, and for the finall hunt a brown bear in 2012 or 2013. The bou hunts will be out of Bethel or Kotz haven't decided yet. My question is I want to know what kind of tent, sleeping bag, boots, back pack, clothing, and optics everyone would recommend. I am not to worried about price I just want the best gear, becuase my life will depend on it. Also would everyone recommend ordering this stuff online or purchasing it in a store. I have roughly 24 months to get everything so I should have enough time. I have the money for the first bou hunt already saved, just need the gear. All opinion welcomed.
