Preparing for a Caribou Hunt
You've saved the funds, cleared it with your spouse, and booked the hunt. Your caribou hunting dream is about to become a reality this fall. But between now and then, you've got a thing or two to do.
Luckily, planning for an adventure like this is a whole lot of fun. It builds up the anticipation, gives you excuses to purchase additional equipment, and prompts you to visit the range more often. The excitement grows exponentially as that great day approaches. And in that excitement, things can get forgotten.
Here's a few important things that you need to remember.
No one is saying you have to be able to run a marathon, but you shouldn't be huffing and puffing when you have finally positioned yourself for the shot of a lifetime either. Remember too, that medical facilities are few and far between, so entering the hunt with a basic level of good health is critical.
Mark Reinert, a hunt broker with Outdoor Connection, says a pre-hunt regimen of daily exercise should include a challenging walk. "The idea is to slowly increase your endurance by lengthening the distance or adding more challenging terrain to the route. It's not a bad idea to wear your hunting boots and carry a daypack either. I advise clients to tackle at least one hill too."
Strength training your upper body for an hour or two a week is also a good idea. This is important when having to shoot offhand.
Of course, there are other great reasons for fitness, but the most important is that it will help you avoid the injuries that can occur when you are tired and getting sloppy.
Reinert also says "Every hunter should give his fitness level an honest self-assessment. When you are out there, you need to know your limits."
The Outfitter's List
These lists are based on years of experience as well as aircraft weight limitations. Most detail clothing, weapon selection, fishing equipment, and other personal gear that each hunter truly needs. They are pared down and practical. Better yet, they form a handy checklist to keep you get organized and on task, reminding you of things, like foot powder, that would have surely been forgotten.
If possible, contact one or two of the outfitter's regular clients. They often have useful advice on must-have items.
