Gear Up for Black Bear Hunt: GoHunt Breaks Down Packing List

GoHunt’s Matt Clark and Caleb Dillashaw break down their pack list prior to a weeklong black bear hunt in the Frank Church Wilderness.

I love me a good backpack dump, and the fellas at GoHunt lined this one up for black bear season quite nicely.

One thing I always take away from a classic gear overview is how differently each of us operates in the backcountry. And, it’s also a great barometer of how my own pack could improve for future trips.

It’s also nice to see a plethora of gear that is not brand new or sponsored, and it’s there to do a job. These guys break down everything over the course of 30 minutes.

If you’re planning on heading into big country to hunt bears or otherwise, this is a nice watch to compare and contrast your gear prior to heading out into the field.

Make your list, check it twice, then watch this, and check it again.
