    The new Ultra NX is not a "wear all day, everyday" type of pant. It's awesome for hunts where raingear comes out of the pack for short periods each day or so. Think August/September-early October...

    Bright colors are popular in a lot of technical non-hunting specific boots. If you fall and get caught in the rocks or snow with only your feet sticking out, helicopters can find your dead body...

    Dead River,

    Sorry about the pop-ups, I agree that it would be annoying and distracting. When I saw your post I asked one of the IT folks about this, since I was surprised we don't receive many...

    Here are a few of my 7200 photos from last season. I split time last year between the Pro 7200 and Ultra 6000.

    Caribou hind quarter, 2 shoulders, and a side of ribs. It's hard to tell with the bag...

    Here's a writeup I did a couple weeks ago on the Outdoorsmans Adapter. If you jump to the end, you'll see there's a slight discount offered.

    I do that sometimes, if set up carefully it puts a nice emphasis on the animal. It's unfortunate that you let the way people take pictures get you you.

    Water won't hurt them, I regularly submerge my binos in warm soapy water for cleaning. As far as the bino harness goes, it takes a ton of water to soak through and make the lenses fog even without...

    Don't be intimidated, it's not that bad to plan once you get started. I started putting together our September trip last November, and 9 months was more than enough time to iron out all the details....

    I would get the binos first, and set them up for glassing off a tripod. It's amazing how much you can pick up at long range with good 10x binos when they are rock steady. As well as this tactic works...

    I would think adding the down pants under your Northbranch pant would be a really nice treestand setup for the cold. The down-proof coating on the SuperDown nylon really adds to its ability to block...

    I like to pack the SD Pants on hunts that see temps in the mid 20s or lower. Not that mid-20s is all that cold, but having the down pants allows me to pack a light 30-Degree sleeping bag. If it's...

    I've used them- they're pretty nice. They won't replace my go-to binos, but they are nice optics. They'll be a top competitor in that price range once word gets out- assuming the "business" end is...

    I've spent quite a bit of time this year in both Vias and Verde. Both work well up close and at a distance.

    To each his own. I'll confirm a 250 yard shot with my rangefinder every time. I'm also ready to crank my reticle down 6.25 MOA for a 550 yard shot if that's what the situation calls for. I just spent...

    I don't think it's a matter of what the boots are made for vs. the amount you used them. It's simply the fact that they can't put the boots back into their inventory if the soles show any wear. A...
