BEN BRITTON SITKA BLACKTAIL GEAR LIST
In October 2018, KUIU’s Ben Britton hunted Sitka Blacktail on Alaska’s Kodiak Island, which is known for its impressively strong and unpredictable weather patterns. Severe cold temperatures were possible, but being in the early part of the season, rain was guaranteed. Ben’s gear list was designed for staying comfortable on day hunts as he was sleeping on a transport boat. Gaiters and rain gear were worn every day due to the ground being saturated, and trekking poles were essential for navigating the terrain.
