Include in your shooting bag a variety of Gore-Tex and fleece outerwear in order to help regulate your body temperature during a Wyoming hunting trip.

While fall is typically beautiful, Wyoming weather can change quickly. Your hunt bag should also include waterproof/lightweight hunting footwear, a game vest, upland gloves, headwear, hearing protection, shooting glasses, choke tubes, oil and solvents, shell pouch and knife. While hunter orange outerwear is not required by law for Wyoming hunts, we at Grey Reef Anglers require that you wear a blaze orange hat or vest.

Guns and Ammo


Selecting the right shotgun is a personal choice for Wyoming hunts. We’ve seen hunters use virtually every make and model available, with prices ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. So, as long as your firearm offers you between-the-hand balance and the features you prefer in the field, bring it along. Gauges including 12, 16 and 20 are typically preferred for Pheasant, Grouse and Partridge. We don’t usually recommend 28 gauges, however, some clients have proven to be very efficient with them.
