    Amount of clothes for a 5 day pack hunt

    What does everyone pack for a 5 day backcountry hunt when it comes to clothes?

    I know raingear, base layer, jacket...

    I am talking about pants, shirts, socks and underwear?

    I am planning on the following:
    (1) set of hiking, walking, everyday clothes (Columbia Omni dry pants and under armour hunting shirt)
    *to be worn when moving from spot to spot and daily activities.

    (1) set of hunting/ stalking clothes that I have in a sealed bag of Sagebrush.
    *only worn when putting the stalk on

    (5) pairs of socks and underwear.

    What is everyone else doing?

    I always leave a fresh brand new change of clothes in the truck at the trailhead along with my flip flops for the rde home. Makes it nice for the ride!

    How are you getting to the hunting area? Self packing with everything on your back, spot pack or ??? Makes a lot of difference.

    All I take is what I'm wearing. More rooms of food and meat if you get game first dat out.
    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    That's close to what I take, except I wear my hunting clothes when not hiking in or changing locations. I usually take two extra pairs of socks and another pair of underwear. No matter what you do to control odor on a 5-10 day hunt you will stink. Therefore, put your face into the wind and hunt!

    I wear what I will hunt in, like hoytnut said, you are going to stink so hunt the wind. I will pack a rain coat, jacket, two pairs of socks, and a change of underwear.

    I bring one set of clothes. I bring one extra pair of socks for every three days.

    My wife makes me take off my clothes outside when I get home.

    I take what I'm wearing on my back plus one extra pair of socks and a rain jacket plus Under armor long johns for colder days. Sometimes I will take a swimsuit if there is a lake in my hunting area. Sometimes I put on my swimsuit and wash my clothes in the lake or creek and let them dry in the sun on a rock. All clothing is made out of polyester so it will dry quickly. fatrooster.

    it depends on the time of year and the local.you souldn't pack the same for 2-3 nights in the southwest. as you would for 5-7 nights in the rockies.
    but as a general rule of thumb i hunt in the same clothes i hike in with.like mentioned above you can't stay sent free on a hike in hunt.so hunt the wind.and only make high % stocks.i only carry 1 extra pair of hunting/hiking socks. and 1 pair of extra underware. and 1 pair of heavy wool socks i sleep in.the only other clothes i carry are.rain gear,and 1 extra heavy mid layer top and bottom,wool watchmans hat and gloves.
    if i'm hunting in an area with alot of water then i will wash out dirty socks/underware midday. during my water topoff/ lunch break.
    just make sure you do it down stream.
