Suggested Equipment List
**** Passport required for entry into Canada ****
* When hunting Saskatchewan in the fall, temperatures can range from 32F to -20F (0c to -30c)
* Layering your clothing is of the utmost of importance. Do not bring just one heavy jacket. Your first layer should contain moisture wicking abilities (synthetic). Additional layers should be made of wool and or synthetic materials such as fleece. The amount of layers will depend on each individuals tolerance to the cold. Do not skimp on your clothes, we quad each client right to their stands, so we can handle lots of gear.
* Your hands and feet are the most difficult to keep warm. Bring plenty of chemical hand and foot warmers.
** Socks **
Layering your socks is also important. Start with a thin moisture wicking synthetic (polypropylene) sock underneath a heavier wool sock. Make sure you have plenty of circulation for your feet.
** Hands **
There are 2 good options here, mitts or a hand muff. Large mitts big enough to allow for chemical hand warmers as well as a thin pair of gloves are the first option. A hand muff worn around the waist with a couple of hand warmers inside, along with a thin pair of gloves is also a good way to go.
** Ulimate Warmth **
For the ultimate warmth try using an old "quiet" sleeping bag. Simply step into it and pull up to your chest, locking in all your valuable body heat.
** Head **
Any hat used for hunting must be solid red or orange. This is Saskatchewan law. We rocommend a wool stocking cap (toque) that covers the ears with or with out a face mask. For ultimate coverage, try a thin balaclava underneath your wool cap.
** Outer Cover Suit **
A "head to toe" outer layer of solid white, red or orange, large enough to fit over your bulky clothes, is required by Saskatchewan law.
