Golden Upland Game 2005

Email

 

 

Mid-October on the Dakota Prairie has seen the extremes of a snowstorm in 1996 and health-threatening ninety degree heat in 2003. December hunting records a weather history almost as contrasting.

We encourage you to be well prepared with proper clothing. Sun, rain, snow, heat, and cold - we will be hunting.

Dress in layers with moisture wicking synthetics and/or wool. Wind and rain is conquered with outer clothing lined with Gor-Tex. Dress also for safety; be liberal in your use of blaze orange.

Pay special attention to footwear. As your health and fitness permits, you will be walking and walking and walking some more. A pair of good, waterproof upland boots or two will serve you well. Boot dryers are available at the lodge.

Finally, protect your eyes with safety glasses.
