Equipment

plane_on_glacierHunting in the Arctic requires expedition style gear. Gear has come a long way in the last 20 years and even further in the last few. With today’s latest gear you can stay comfortable in the backcountry of the arctic for sustained periods of time and stay quite comfortable. The Arctic is a beautiful but harsh environment that can test man/women and gear. Just remember… it can and will snow any day of the year.

BGBG prides itself on having the newest and highest quality of equipment; we are diligent about staying up on the latest and best gear. All the gear is pre-packed and organized specifically for each camp. The cook tent at each spike camp is an insulated 3-person Arctic Oven tent with a small wood stove for a heat source. The sleep tents we use are Hilliberg Soulo, a free standing one-man 4-season tent that weighs approx. 5pounds. Cooking is done on an MSR stove. We use pack rafts and SOARs (inflatable kayaks) for river travel. We also use bush planes such as a Super Cub or Helio Courrier to access spike camps. If you have never been in a bush plane you are in for an unforgettable experience.

One may as well dam for water tanks the people's cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.
