So I am a first time fall bear hunter. I have a friend coming up from Florida to Minnesota to join me. Obviously, I will have all my gear and lots of choices of outfits to wear. Jeff on the other hand will be limited. I am hoping to get some insight from some of the experienced bear hunters on what he should bring/ purchase to wear. Also, what are some things that I might not think of ?

Thermacell, rain gear, warm weather clothing, and a warmer jacket incase it cools off

Carcus +1. That is all he needs, maybe a head net if black flies or gnats are an issue.

Yep-Carcus and Brotsky are exactly right.

Fall bear? Bugs bad in MN?

What Carcus said. Deer flies should/will be gone by the opener. Mosquitos will probably be bad. Don't forget the thermacell.
