What to Bring on Your Hunting Trip

Gear Considerations

Gear selection is personal, but MVW has comprised a basic check-list of potential items you may need while hunting with us.

Wisconsin weather can fluctuate greatly within short periods of time so it is important to pack appropriately. It is the law to wear blaze-orange during rifle hunts and during youth hunts. We are happy to answer any questions about gear and update you on the weather
conditions prior to your hunt.
