By far the most asked question for us is what gear we are using. So we thought we’d put together some gear lists and let you know exactly what we’re carrying into the backcountry on our hunts. You’ve probably head the saying: “There’s more than one way to skin a cat.” This is particularly true with hunting gear and preferences can be pretty broad. That being said, here is my gear list from this past fall for my earlier season hunts. As the temps drop, my kit changes a little bit but I will publish another post on that.
