What To Bring

In September you would need a lighter weight camo pattern as highs are usually around 70 and lows around 40.

In October you should look at getting a warmer clothing with warm boots as the lows can dip down around 30 and highs in the 50's.

November will usually have highs around the 40's and lows in the teens. Warm boots, hat, and warm clothing are advised to stay comfortable in the blind.

December and January can have highs in the 30's and lows around 0. We have heaters in all of the enclosed blinds to help you stay warm. If you are rifle hunting, you can wear camo or dark clothing as we will be in an enclosed dark stand. For bow hunters it would be recommended to wear camo boots, pants, jackets, and hats.

You can bring whatever weapon you choose for your hunt whether it would be a bow, crossbow, rifle, shotgun, pistol. We cater to all hunting techniques.

For rifle we recommend using a 308 caliber rifle or larger. By having your weapon sighted in before you get here will save you time during your stay. We will just have you fire a shot or two at our range to make sure your weapon is still zeroed in from your trip to our lodge. A good pair of binoculars and some rain gear can also come in handy during your hunt. (See the weather predictions below)

If you are looking to take your trophy home with you, plan on bringing the appropriate size cooler to carry the meat. We can help you make arrangements for your antlers and cape if you wish to have your trophy mounted.
