Interesting country. I spent a summer in Dubois WY. You probably aren't going to be far from there.
I would ask your guide what you need to bring with regard to supplies. Your supplies will depend the weather patterns in October. You will likely have some freezing nighttime temps. I doubt you will need an awful lot of emergency supplies other than the usual things like a small first aid kit, compass, knife or two, fire making stuff, binoculars, layered clothing, rain gear, and of course your rifle. I would pick up some wool pants for hunting.
Lots of sage brush in the basin. Lots of ticks if there hasn't been a good freeze or two at that point in time.
You going to be going on horse back up into the mountains for mule deer?
