Suggestions for Both Hunts
Dress in layers because you want to avoid sweating and then getting cold. When packing your day pack keep the weight of it in mind, you could end up hiking many miles in the snow. Camouflage is okay to wear but necessary. No orange clothing is needed. When choosing the weapon to bring you will need to keep it light. So we recommend a pistol or open sight rifle. Usually, your shot will be close.
