    Well clothes,cover,supplies for cooking,water purifing tablets.

    It depends how good you are at hunting how much food to carry.If you can kill and fish then you can carry little. 2 good weapons rifle and pistol big caliber and emergecy flares,gps,radio,first aid kit...rain gear and more

    1. The minimum equipment to be carried during summer months is as follows: (for all single engine and for multiengine aircraft licensed to carry 15 passengers or less)

    (A) rations for each occupant sufficient to sustain life for one week;

    (B) one axe or hatchet;

    (C) one first aid kit;

    (D) an assortment of tackle such as hooks, flies, lines, and sinkers;

    (E) one knife;

    (F) fire starter;

    (G) one mosquito headnet for each occupant;

    (H) two small signaling devices such as colored smoke bombs, railroad fuses, or Very pistol shells, in sealed metal containers;

    2. In addition to the above, the following must be carried as minimum equipment from October 15 to April 1 of each year:

    (A) one pair of snowshoes

    (B) one sleeping bag

    (C) one wool blanket for each occupant over four

    As you can see, the Alaskan regulations are minimal and do not address much in the way of specifics or quality. The old regulations were similarly minimal, but required double the food, a gill net and a firearm and specified matches instead of a generic "firestarter." The old requirements were as follows:

    Canadian Survival Kit Regulations

    Canada used to have pretty stringent regulations regarding required survival gear. Then they revised the regulations, leaving the contents virtually undefined and ambiguous, presenting unscrupulous operators with loopholes large enough to fly a 747 through. The current version of the regulation follows, with the former version, a fairly good guide for what may be considered acceptable with modification by some government field personnel, following the current regulations.

    Survival Equipment - Flights over Land

    602.61 (1) Subject to subsection (2), no person shall operate an aircraft over land unless there is carried on board survival equipment, sufficient for the survival on the ground of each person on board, given the geographical area, the season of the year and anticipated seasonal climatic variations, that provides the means for

    (a) starting a fire;

    (b) providing shelter;

    (c) providing or purifying water; and

    (d) visually signalling distress.

    (2) Subsection (1) does not apply in respect of

    (a) a balloon, a glider, a hang glider, a gyroplane or an ultra-light aeroplane;

    (b) an aircraft that is operated within 25 nautical miles of the aerodrome of departure and that has the capability of radio communication with surface-based radio station for the duration of the flight;

    (c) a multi-engined aircraft this is operated south of 66 30' north latitude

    (i) in IFR flight within controlled airspace, or

    (ii) along designated air routes;

    (d) an aircraft that is operated by an air operator, where the aircraft is equipped with equipment specified in the air operator's company operations manual, but not with the equipment required by subsection (1); or

    (e) an aircraft that is operated in a geographical area where and at a time of year when the survival of the persons on board is not jeopardized.

    If you plan to carry firearms in an aircraft, including as part of your survival equipment, you should be aware that hand guns and fully automatic weapons are not legal to be carried or worn in Canada. As for any long guns, when entering Canada you must register each firearm with Canadian Customs or face severe penalties if caught.

    On a related issue, the "flare gun" found in many life rafts and survival kits is not a "firearm," so do not refer to it as such when asked by Canadian Customs if you have any firearms on board. If the subject comes up, and only if it comes up, you should always refer to it as a "Pyrotechnic Signaling Device" as in "

    You need a really good knife and hatchet. Do not use a axe it wastes valuable energy. Also always have a shelter. Bring a .22/.410 combination gun, and a high caliber gun. Always stay by water. Have 3 compasses that way if one fails you will know that it is messed up. A space blanket, a tarp. Paracord is a huge plus, it can be used for endless things. Always carry some kind of first aid kit. And last but not least ALWAYS carry firestarting material, like a fire steel, waterproof matches, and other stuff. Always carry more than one form of material to make a fire.
