Gear List for a Spring Brown Bear Hunt

Suggested gear for a typical 10 day Spring Brown Bear Hunt in Alaska:

A spring brown bear hunt in Alaska takes place in May when the weather can range widely from rain, sleet, snow and wind to warm and sunny. Packing accordingly can be a challenge, so a good layering system like Kryptek or Sitka Gear is the way to go. Here is a Spring brown bear hunt gear list that I have put together from my brown bear hunt in May, 2012.

    Suggested Hunting Gear List

  • Day Pack
    The Tenzing TZ 1250 Pack pack was all I needed on my brown bear hunt. There was more than enough room to pack everything I needed.
  • Binoculars
    I took Vortex 10×42 Talon HD’s
  • Bino Harness
    I really like the S4 Gear Lockdown
  • Knife
  • Headlamp and/or Flashlight
    *with extra batteries
  • Digital Camera
  • Bog Pod
    For glassing, video, and shooting.
  • Filtration Water Bottle
  • Fire Starter Kit

    Misc. Gear

  • Book, Magazine and/or iPod
  • Large Dry-Bag
    For transporting bear hide and skull.
  • Street Clothes
    I took only the clothes I wore getting there and one extra shirt.
  • Underwear and socks
    A pair for each day. You will probably be walking to your glassing point, so there will be a fair amount of sweating involved.
  • Slip on shoes
    Makes airport security a breeze.
  • Personal Items
    Deodorant, medication, glasses etc.
