***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. 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.
