Hunting Gear Checklist

Follow Our Black Bear Hunting Gear Checklist for a Successful Trip

At Northern Hideaway Outfitters, we’ve been helping our customers enjoy black bear hunting expeditions for years. As seasoned guides, we understand the anticipation and excitement that come with preparing for a trip. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive black bear hunting gear checklist to streamline your packing process and make sure you are equipped with everything you need.

Our checklist covers all the bear hunting essentials you’ll need for a successful excursion into the Northern Maine wilderness. From sturdy boots to reliable bear hunting clothing, we’ve got you covered. And the best part? We provide a convenient PDF download so you can easily print it out or download it to check items off as you collect your gear.

Bear Hunting Clothing We Recommend You Bring & Wear

When gearing up for black bear hunting, your choice of clothing can make all the difference in your comfort and hunting success. Here’s the essential bear hunting clothing used by our team:

    • Camo Clothing: We recommend investing in scent-suppressing camo gear to mask your scent and increase the chances of a successful kill.
    • Rubber Boots: Ensure your footwear is up to par with rubber or waterproof hunting boots. These will keep your feet dry and comfortable, especially in muddy or rough conditions at the hunting site.
    • Rain Gear: Be prepared for any inclement weather, particularly during fall hunts. September outings often encounter rain, so equip yourself with reliable rain gear to stay dry and focused on the hunt. This includes rain jackets, pants, boots, and more.
    • Thermal Gear: As black bear hunting often extends into the evening, prepare for lower temperatures with thermal bear hunting clothing. We recommend preparing with thermal under shirts, pants, and even jackets.

    By following this black bear hunting gear checklist, you’ll be well-equipped for a successful hunting journey. If you have any questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
