Hunting Checklist

Recommendations For Alaska Hunting

The following is a list of recommendations only. Temperatures during the fall in Alaska can range from 15 to 75 degrees and from sun to wind, rain, sleet, and snow. I'm sure you've heard it said elsewhere but nowhere does it hold as true as in Alaska, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change. Please be prepared for all possible conditions.


Day Pack


Warm clothing should be wool, polypropylene, hollofil, thinsulate, or clothing with similar features. Cotton should be avoided. Absolutely no down clothing or down sleeping bags! All Gortex gear should be clean & seams treated with Scotchguard or a similar product. Be certain you and your gear are in good condition.
To insure aircraft passenger safety, Alaska hunters are restricted to 50 pounds of gear in a soft type duffel bag (waterproof recommended) plus guns and ammo. This is NOT a recommendation and any additional gear will be left in Dillingham.
