    Guy,

    With all of the new camo patterns out there, do you feel that one particular pattern works better than the rest for hunting in the high country?

    I have one more question as well: I have read for several years in a row now in Eastmans MRS that unit 21A in NM is top quality for bull elk. Last year I went to 21A during the October rifle season and hunted my butt off seeing no bulls, never heard anyone shoot, and never saw anyone with a dead bull. We saw plenty of cows but just no bulls. Is this unit better during the rut in archery season and do the bulls migrate somewhere else in October?

    I'm not a huge gator wearer. I have a very nice pair of Kenetrek gators that I have used cat hunting in Libby, MT. They worked great. We are headed to AK this spring, and I'm probably going to take them. The guys up North really rely on them, because the wet grass and willows. We don't have as much of a problem with that here where I hunt most of the time. -G

    Not really. I am pretty much a spot and stalk guy for mule deer. I have used them for whitetails once in while. I like the Primos calls myself, but I know there are plenty of different kinds out there. -G

    What do you think the best layering setup is for the buck? Looked a lot at first lite, haven't had much of any experience with the other brands.

    Thanks

    The high country changes so much in color from month to month. I think most of them do a good enough job. I use the Mossy Oak Brush pattern and it works well, it has the right color of browns and tans. The Realtree Max-1 works well in the sage brush also. But I think hunting with the wind in your face and stay off the ridge tops is as important for concealment as anything is. -G

    Last question and I'll just sit back and enjoy...how's the winter treating the area around Cody?
    And don't forget...the invitation to go bow hunting in the ND Badlands is still open!

    That's a very good question. I really think the three you have to look into would be Sitka, KUIU and Kryptek. I think if you are after the best deal, KUIU and Kryptek would be the best two for you. The Fist Lite stuff is very good as well, I just don't have as much experience with it. My buddy Chad in AK who I hunted sheep with last fall had the First Lite gear and it seemed to work very well. I know their base layer is probably the best though. -G
