    Upcoming Trip

    I'm headed to SW Montana the first week of November for an elk hunt. It seems extremely warm out there. Is this weather typical for this time of year. I sure hope it cools off some.

    I just picked up a Core4 Torrent Jacket and Pants set for an upcoming hunt. It has pit zips on the jacket and 3/4 length zips on the legs for easier on/off. It seems well made and priced right.
