Packing List
Packing With Horses and Mules:

Everything we take in to the wilderness has to be packed on horses or mules in panniers (large canvas bags that hang on the pack saddle). Over packing is the biggest problem we have. Too much “stuff” is brought along that never gets worn, eaten or used. It’s important to keep both bulk and weight as low as possible, so the pack animals don’t get worn out and sore from over packing.

  1. Think about what you REALLY need to take and what you can do without.
  2. We try to limit clients to a maximum of one pack horse per two clients (40-45 lbs. max for each summer client – up to 60 lbs. for each hunter, not including sleeping bags or weapon. This also does not include food for drop camps.
  3. Food for drop camps should take no more than one pack horse for every 2-3 hunters or two pack horses for every 4-6 hunters. No glass. The best thing to do is plan on fresh food the first couple of days (steaks, hamburgers, etc…). Then, bring pre-made/frozen meals (spaghetti, lasagna, hot dishes) as they stay frozen for a few days and can be eaten later in your trip.
  4. All gear should be packed in soft duffle-type bags or action packers.Nothing larger than a 48-quart cooler is a good rule of thumb. No hard suitcases or ones with rigid frames or wheels. We prefer two small bags to one large bag.Balance your bags/coolers – try to get them equal weight.
  5. Sleeping bags should be warm enough for the time of year. Ideally, down or Hollofil bags work best. These will stuff well into a smaller sack. They are smaller and less bulky. Summer nights are chilly (30 or 45 degrees) – fall nights are colder (30 to -20 degrees).
  6. We will no longer pack in any hard or rigid bow or rifle cases. We supply rifle scabbards. Arrows and bow supplies fit well into PVC pipe cases (please keep to 30″ or less in length). Tree stands are heavy, very bulky to pack and are rarely used in the wilderness. Please, no tree stands.
  7. We recommend being prepared for all types of weather. It varies from 40 degrees to 75 degrees’ sunny days to very cold (5 to 20 degrees below zero) snowy days and nights.
  8. We suggest you layer clothing rather than wearing heavy, bulky clothes. NO NOISY PLASTIC OR NYLON CLOTHING!
