What follows is my gear list for a boat style hunt for Sitka blacktail deer on Kodiak Alaska. This is a different sort of gear list than the norm due to the boat aspect, but this should give you a great starting point for everything you need to pack for this style of hunt in November. Word of caution, this hunt is very addicting and is the second time I've gone to Alaska for Sitka blacktail.
