  Packing Tips......      
  You will be able to have two checked bags and one carry on bag. Airlines are changing their rules daily it seems, so call ahead of time to find out weight limits, as well as how many bags you can have. As of today, your checked bags can weigh up to 50 pounds, and your carry on 25 pounds. I would also suggest that your bow case has some extra room so you can pack other items in it as well. Do not have anything they percieve as weapons (knifes, sharpeners, etc.) in your carry on, they will take it. This is an extensive packing list, but I will be narrowing it down for the hunt you are booked for.
