Living in Oregon, you probably ought to stick with a synthetic bag. Kifaru and Marmot both make fine synthetic options that are lightweight and compressible.
I hunt in a much dryer climate and use...
I shoot a helix with my deep six insert.
I've done it, but just as a perk from work. We fly small aircraft over our hunting areas on the way to visit clients. We are usually too high to see much game, but we definitely peak into some spots...
Shelter: Kifaru Megatarp or Hilleberg Kaitum Three
Bag: Mont-Bell super spiral (20 degree, I think)
Pad: thermarest neo air
Pillow: exped air pillow
Stove: Brunton Primus
I have Kenetrek Mountain Extremes and Lowa Ranger GTX. I think the Kenetreks are more comfortable.
That is crazy! I put the helix broadhead on my injexions and compared penetration against FMJ with G5 strikers on my rinehart target. The injexions were notably outperforming the FMJ's. Unfortunately...
Well I have 4 KUIU pieces and a lot of Sitka pieces. My KUIU pieces (tiburon and superdown) are nice, but they are not super durable. The pieces are lightweight and and work well except for the...
Which is your main focus, archery or rifle?
x2 on the horse vs. foot question.
And if you don't mind me asking, age?
I've hunted 61 several times and seen grizzly every time.
I have heard of the dri down. While it is an improvement over untreated down, it will get wet, lose its loft, and take a long time to regain its loft. If you are going to be in freezing...
I'm looking at the Viper hd. If you are talking about the Kaibab's, I'm just going to be using the 15x mostly for truck glass. The Kaibab's are more than I want to spend and I am too...
Tru-ball max pro 4 with the wrist lanyard. I carry two triggers after learning the hard way. If I lose one, I have to dig in my pack, but at least my hunt isn't over.
If I lose two, I deserve tag...
I would steer you toward a synthetic bag if your hunting in Alaska. The Kifaru Slick bag that is zero degrees and for lengths up to 6'7" is going to weigh 2lbs 15oz and will run you about...
2 pair, working on a third.
15x50 <--working on this
Big fan of the outdoorsman system. The pistol grip is good at lower magnifications, but not so good for higher magnifications.
I shoot the Prime Shift and really like it. Very accurate and very field tough. The warranty is second to none as well.
I assumed it was being discontinued because it was pulled from the website. Shouldn't assume, right!
Thanks Big Sur.
The website is advertising the vest as wind proof and I know my 1/4 zip is not wind proof. I am glad that I have the SD hoodie on the way before you guys cancelled the hoodie.
Will the SD vest do anything to cut wind or is it strictly insulation?
Also, when the heck can I get a Tiburon zip tee in Vias? I check the site at least once a week.
I went with helix after watching a YouTube video on side by side comparison of penetration through a gel mold with shoulder blades inside the mold.
Is the Vortex worth another bucks? That is hard to say. It has slightly more magnification and a fine focus adjustment knob. It is also several ounces heavier and a little bit larger. I can see pros...
Based on what you just described, I would push you to either the Nikon ED 13-30x50 or the Vortex Razor HD 11-33x50. I have the Vortex and my buddy has the Nikon. They are both top shelf for...
Don't spoil the moment.
If you can afford the Kifaru tipi's, they are hard to beat.
I've used both and I don't think there is a definitive choice here. The Jetstream lite cuts the wind better and I like the longer tail. They are both very good vests, but the chest pockets are...
