The weather in Wyoming is truly unpredictable. The fall hunting weather is usually mild; it will be warm to moderate during the day and will chill down, possibly below zero, as soon as the sun sets in the evening. The most important thing is for you not to get wet; once you get wet, then you will get cold, so please prepare yourself to remain as dry as possible. Snowstorms are likely during your hunt, and in the mountains the storms pose blizzard conditions. Plan on having multiple layers to adjust for temps.

When packing your bag(s) for the trip in, it is best to use 2 or more medium to small sized duffel bags rather than one large duffel bag and with no hard edges.

If you need emergency contact information for your family while you are in hunting, please let us know and we can provide the information for them prior to your hunt
