Gearing Up For Bucks - Apparel

We whitetail hunters are always looking for the best hunting gear. That gear often consumes much of our hunting budget, while some very important "stuff" is often neglected -- like clothing and boots.

We whitetail hunters are always looking for the best hunting gear. That gear often consumes much of our hunting budget, while some very important "stuff" is often neglected -- like clothing and boots.


A warm jacket and good pair of boots will keep you in the field long enough to give you the opportunity to use all the other gear that you so meticulously selected and purchased. Spend 10 days in the mountains with inferior boots, though, and I promise you'll gladly want to trade your $1,000 weapon for some new ones!


Clothing and boots will keep you warm, dry and mobile and they'll conceal you with camouflage patterns to match the terrain. Here's a rundown of the latest, greatest gear that will help you in countless ways next time you go out to look for Mr. Big!
