Hunting Gear / Re: Outerwear, Sitka, kuiu, plythal... Etc
« on: June 16, 2019, 12:48:21 PM »
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:
Ditto. Ive tried a lot of different brands. Ended up with majority Sitka Gear when I was done testing because It fits me better the way its cut. Merino wool is amazing! If you dont care about a certain Camo pattern or if solid colors are fine with you, Minus33 brand has got good merino wool pieces. Honestly, after trying a lot of different materials, cant say enough how big of a fan I am of merino wool. Finally, shop sales and look for close outs on last years stuff. Ive never paid full retail for Sitka, KUIU or firstlite. Just gotta know what you want then pounce when its on sale or close out. If you even a bit more info on type of hunt, time or year, I can help get down to what weight you need, etc. Good Luck!

Not a bull but my dad and I got inside 15 yds  from her and I couldnt resist! Plus, I had help packing! Best of all, I still have plenty of elk in the freezer.
