You should be prepared to have a pack that weighs 50-60 lbs (excluding gun/bow) that you can take with you for anywhere from 2-7 days in an outpost cabin. You can then have another pack which you can keep at the main lodge (along with hard gun case, etc.) - this can be an additional 50-60 lbs.

This is really a personal preference – and, in our experience, it is more important to be accurate, than have the "optimal" caliber of weapon. Also, a big factor to consider is the effective range for the weapon you will be using. A 30-30 or 270 is fine as long as you limit the distance of your shots. The 300 magnum class calibers are our personal favorites and are good for any game animal we offer and can maintain killing power out to considerable distances. In addition to the 300 magnum calibers, other commonly used calibers include the 7mm magnum, 30-06, and 338 magnum.
We recommend 170-200 grain bullets
