What gear do I need to bring?

Be sure to pack your cold weather and rain gear! Most hunter bring wool pants, water proof jacket, waterproof boots, pants, wool socks, hat, gloves, sun glasses, sleeping bag, binoculars, etc. NO COTTON Outerwear.

 

Do I need to get lodging in Nome?

In the SPRING you need to arrive in Nome a day before your hunt and make lodging arrangements. The 4-hour snowmobile ride to camp will commence the following day. At the end of your hunt you will also need to make lodging arrangements in Nome the night before your flight. Alaska weather is sometimes extreme and may require adjustments to your transportation schedule.

 

In the FALL transportation is much more predictable. We will drive to camp the day you fly in. Usually hunters will plan on staying a night in Nome on their last hunting day, then fly out the following morning. Keep in mind that if you harvest a bear on a weekend you will be required to have your bear inspected by the Nome Fish and Game on a weekday (not open on the weekends).
