Choosing from today’s lineup of technical clothing can be overwhelming (and expensive). I grew up hunting in a cotton shirt, a pair of pants, and a jacket if it was cold. I always wore the same boots, same underwear, and the same frameless backpack.

I didn’t know the difference between different materials, or the advantages of them.
The 90% Jacket and Pant have been a part of the Sitka lineup as a mainstay for several years. It’s has always been an incredible piece of gear and a go to for many western hunters. However, due to Sitka’s nature of improvement and innovation, they've re-imagined the 90% series for 2014!

My desire is to also learn how to contribute more helpful in-field information to local Wyoming Game and Fish personnel when they seek public comment.

Friday afternoon we loaded up the family car and headed south to start the season. This year it was a perfect Colorado blue sky day and we eagerly anticipated hitting the trails the next morning. I can't explain why I like the Salida trails so much, but I look forward to them every year and this year was no different.
