  • What to Pack for the
    "Big Hunting Trip"

    How to Book a Hunt

    List of Items to Pack
    ( A military duffel bag is easiest, along with a carry-on bag.)

    The list below does not contain everything you should bring but is a reminder for the most important items. Pack to your own comfort and needs. If you have any questions about additional items please give us a call and we'll be more than happy to help. Good luck preparing for a wonderful experience hunting with Skyline Guest Ranch and Guide Service.


    1. Licenses
    2. Rifle and ammunition. For airlines- guns must be packed in hard cases with bolt removed and shells need to be packed separately so they can't move.
