Check out the video above for an item-by-item gear explanation for this muzzleloader hunt.
What follows is the exact gear list I ran during my recent 2018 Utah muzzleloader mule deer hunt. This hunt was a little different than my norm... I was still backpack hunting, but I split up the hunt in three day periods in case I needed to change locations. This gear list is also a hybrid of lightweight gear that I normally run, and some "comfort" gear items due to the transition to fall hunts.

This hunt was a success on all fronts. The gear worked perfectly, even during all the rain on this hunt! On the third day, I was able to take a great buck during a fogged out morning after a brief pause in the rain and fog. Let me know if you have any questions on the gear I used. Best of luck this season!
