so, whatcha wearin'?
« on: September 05, 2007, 12:17:22 pm »
What do ya'll wear into the woods when you're getting serious?  Do ya make buckskins and go out in moccasins or do ya opt for a little higher tech apparel?  Not that it matters as long as you're not seen by the animals, just curious as to how well different styles perform.

I wear regular camo BDUs and long sleeve camo T-shirt. Doesn't hardly get cold enough to wear wool but I bought wool pants(mil surplus) last year for my Colorado hunt so I will wear them when it gets cold enough.
 The reason I wear camo is because the folks that make the kind of cloths I like only make it in camo. I don't go for scent lock or any of the fancy commercial stuff. If I could find 6 pocket BDU type pants that weren't camo I'd get them.     Pat

Mee too - camo BDU's or whatever was on the bargain bin at Wallyworld several years ago, camo gloves, and head net. Am thinking about making some kind of guillie suit (spelling?) from thin overalls and burlap.

I like a pendleton earth tone plaid wool shirt and wool hunting britches, and LL bean Main hunting shoes. When it is warmer I wear light weight camo jeans. I stay away from camo most of the time as I hate to look like every other jolker out there, got to have a bit of indiviguality. Still need to get an Art young style wool hat.

I'm in the process of making my ghillie now.  I'm gonna take a picture (or rather have someone else do it) of me in the woods while wearing it.  Just to see for myself if it works.  It sure takes a long time peeling the threads out of burlap pieces. :-\

I mostly buy the cheap walmart camo, and layer according to temperature. Don't require alot of layering even in cold weather because I've accumulated some natural insulation over the years. ;D
