Packing For Bear Camp

In just a few days it will be time for me to fly to my favorite vacation of the year- bear camp!  Kevin Cronin and Cozy Toes couldn’t make it this year but I’ll be there and it’s time to start packing.

Yankee Hunter, Sorry I can’t make it to bear camp this year 🙁 Your Pal, Kevin.

Packing List

When it comes to packing for any hunt there are 3 main things to never forget.   If nothing else,  a guy can go hunting with these 3 essentials:

  1. Gun/Bow
  2. Ammo/Arrows
  3. License
