***NOTE FOR ALL DROP CAMP HUNTERS: Each hunter is limited to 150 lbs. per person for food and gear. Hunters are notorious about over packing on food! One cooler is allowed per drop camp. No Yeti coolers allowed. A 48 to 50 quart (or smaller) cooler will fit in the pack panniers. If you have soft-sided coolers, they pack the best. Other food is best packed in small cardboard boxes weighing around 15 to 30 lbs. each-it is helpful if your boxes are pre-weighed and marked with their weights.

NOTE:Cell service is “spotty” on the mountain in area 35. There is no service in areas 25 & 26, therefore a SAT Phone is required! Drop Camp hunters are asked to bring a cell phone. Many cell phones work from most of our drop camp sites; however, not all cell phone carriers get service. Each Drop Camp is asked to check their cell phones and let the Outfitter know whether or not you get a signal.
