It's definitely not necessary to spend a ton on gear, but I will say that it's sure nice to have it if you do. I started with some Sitka gear a couple years ago and I continue to add to the collection. It's some pretty amazing stuff. As far as which pieces of gear I'd recommend, some of that would depend on when you hunt, i.e. earlier archery seasons or later rifle seasons. Happy to provide recommendations if you tell me that :upthumb:
This is going to be early season archery western hunting. I've been a Midwest flatlander and have that down. Just reading and researching the systems. Merino wool is my base go to. But between the brands for similar attributes to the climate change is what I really want to be sure of. Just buy one and be done.... I'm kind of built like a tank, chest thighs and seat are always hard to fit with shoulder restrictions and leg movement. Anyway, just curious for warm to mid season gear for sure. Up to the cold weather...

What have you used and what are your recommendations. I'm to the point to purchase the next step in moving gear. Currently I run wool > western hunters, what's the recommendation

I am too looking at ideas and options for this.
I have found the winterial 3 person to be fair with cost and with review for packing. What are you recommending for a base fabric on these tents that pack in with minimal or no floor to them?

Ran a set of 8x42 BX-5's this past weekend at Total Archery Challenge
These were beyond amazing but $1250 msrp

Additionally they are a step up on the polishing scale for your glass.
The BX-4's are arguable to be 1/2 the cost and seemed very well praised from the base of the hill. the 5's were on the hill with me and were superb

Currently I am preparing for a successful year to push and lead into new journies. Finding new ways to gone my soul and being able to develop skill and suitability starts with attitude and ends with boots on the ground. Being from the Midwest and having a great part in the Wisconsin conservation while chasing game makes an acceptable effort and success. 2 years ago I picked up archery as a lost obsession and the consumption of technology, gear, technique, and comrodery is something lost over ten years prior. When the passion of trekking into the woods with sticks and a bow slowly dwindled there was not a YouTube, online forums were rudimentary, and you remitted on your own capabilities to hone skill via literature and sight time. Now literature is similar just easily accessible, the tuning and set up seems to require more sight time and practice. This may because I'm more focused and not in my twenties, more mental strength and drive with less rudimentary force forward motion driven by what my grandfather would have called piss and vinegar. In persuit of challenge and idea I have started to put high payoff activities on the calender these are must do things that force my ever changing schedule to comply with my goals. My changing challenge is this spring and I have started turkey hunting as a rookie for spring scouting activity and getting into the woods. This is great time ti shoot my local spots for big game as well to take heed in a new activity. This fall among hunting diver ducks and whitetails in going to venture to Canada to naturally chase black bear with the bow. This is step one of the most important part of the message we can listen to in order to expand ourselves on several levels. One thing this hunt already has is passion and tuned gear, while lacking my twenty year old grit and tuned body that 3 boys and a demanding work schedule have prioritized a less sculpted body but given a happier man with a great outlook on life and a responsibility to translate tradition.

My goal.
Fitness improvement, while maintaining a household. Currently I'm a fair 228-232#
Through gym membership I have started the work out option and svelte this past week. At home I have started the diet. Through focus, weights, cardio, diet, and lifestyle change I am going to get to my lean 211#, expand stamina by training and ensuring I can traverse any terrain I need to.

Drop 25#
With reaching that will accomplish all other parts of of this project through process.

Stay tuned.

I can't thank you guys enough for the time you spent on the honest opinion of what and where you have seen work.

Now the next question

Boots. Before I go buy what should I look for.
