    HOT weather clothing

    Im going on a bowhunt in nevada in mid august so im wondering whats the best clothing for potentialy really hot weather hunting? Since most of my hunting hasn't been in weather over 80 i have just used some cotton camo for my early season adventures.

    I use UA Heat Gear, Cabelas Microtex Lite and cotton for my early season hunts. There's no getting around it, you're going to be hot and you are going to sweat, and you are going to stink. The cotton stuff and them BDU style 6 pocket pants are cheap enough you can buy enough to use a fresh set every day of a week long hunt.

    I'm going to Wyo early Sept and that's mostly what I'll be using I suspect..

    light weight merino wool!! It will not stink even if you have to wear it several times before it can be washed and dries quickly.

    Thanks guys. I'll look into those options. My friend im going to nevada with has a set of the microtex and plans on only taking that as his hunting clothing.

    Whisky: i completely agree with the cotton option, they're cheap and i have enough pair to wear a different set each day but it would be nice to have something that could be worn a few times without holding so much scent like cotton. Also it'll be nice to save some room in the truck by not having so much clothing.

    Labman: i'll definitely check into merino, from what you've said it sounds like what im looking for!

    +1 on the merino. If you check camofire.com they often have the merino 190 base layers in camo on there for a good price. I wore mine for a month straight and could not smell any sweat like I normally do with my other base layers

    Cabelas Hunt Tech gets my vote for summer / early fall hunts. Very light weight, very breathable and reasonably priced. Also the camo patterns are extreemly vivid.

    I'm a big fan of UA heat gear. Elk & antelope out west or early bow season in Jersey. It dries fast & doesn't stink. I also use synthetic socks & underware. Cotton is fine for setting around camp but not hunting

    First Lite Merino gets my vote. It's very light and doesn't stink after days of sweating in it. Where I hunt it's usually 70-75 degrees during the day and 40-50 degrees at night during August. The merino seems to keep you cooler during the day and warmer at night compared to UA and cotton. Thats my experience though.
