*Archery Gear: Bow with a minimum weight of 49lbs and 24" draw are required by Ontario law. We prefer 55+lbs and multiple blade broadheads. Mechanical broadheads are not preferred. All broadheads must be SHARP!
*Hunting Skills: This is truly a bow hunters camp. Practice shooting from an elevated platform and while wearing hunting clothing. Hunters are most successful when they can be motionless for long periods of time and constantly using your senses.
*Camouflage & Clothing: Most treestands are located in pine trees and the foliage during hunt is generally green. Most commercial camouflage will suffice, but green patterns may be an advantage. Temperatures may be from 20-65 F and rain or snow is a possibility. Comfortable waterproof boots are a must. Clean set of clothes for the trip home.
***A HUNTER ORANGE VEST & HAT ARE REQUIRED WHEN TRAVELLING TO AND FROM YOUR STAND***
*Transportation: Hunters must provide transportation to and from Caramat Bears Den and transportation to and from the bush. 2 & 4 wheel drive trucks are recommended (quads, side-by-side, etc)
*Other Recreation Equipment: Hunters may bring boats, motors, and fishing equipment for the local lakes and rivers. ATVs are popular for fun and transportation (check season dates). Cards, board games or dice are other common games brought.
*Miscellaneous: Passport, drivers license, or proof of Citizenship are required to travel in Ontario. Plastic bags, coolers, burlap (for hides), and salt are recommended for travelling with your game. Cash in Canadian funds, GOOD flashlights, knives, a first aid kit, toiletries, a camera, and a compass of GPS are recommended
