The Best Hunting Gear Investment You've Made in the Last 10 Years

I mentioned this camo poncho once before, I got it for varmint hunting and have used it also for Deer and Squirrel hunting and this spring I have been using it for Turkeys. By every measure this garment works great for everything I have hunted, light weight and airy I can wad it up and stuff it in a large coat pocket, I also have it sprayed down good with Sawyers and have been completely bug free from black flies, skeeters and those damned ticks. 

A lot of bang for the buck right here,



Been on the ghillie poncho game for a few years now... so good.

Quality hunting clothing that allows me to sit in a tree stand from sun up till sundown and stay comfortable. Danner boots to keep my feet warm and dry on the 2 mile walk in and back out. A heater body suit that really keeps me warm, good rain gear and merino wool base layers just to name a few.

I agree.

Probably  the Thermacell Unit,I just bought to keep the Skeeters at bay.

 Definitely  use it next May. I don't  like to sit past 30 Minutes in any one spot- but this past May was horrible  with the Skeeters despite swimming in Deep Woods Off.

Safety ropes with prussic attachments.  I always used harnesses but once the rope is attached to the tree for the season, I feel pretty safe.  At 68 I'm just not that athletic anymore.  About five years ago I stepped into a hang on stand that was secured with a chain.  The chain was weakened by tree growth and it broke when I stepped on the stand.  Luckily I was able to bear hug the tree and get back on my ladder.  No damage other than some scrapes.  I'm not sure I am strong enough to do that today.  All ladder stands for me now.
