We have been fortunate to travel to some pretty unique places around the world to bow hunt. We also hunt HARD in the midwest for whitetails every single year. I have been hunting with Josh since 2014 and since then we have hunted in 17 states ranging from caribou in Alaska above the arctic circle to turkeys in Florida to antelope in Utah to elk in New Mexico and Idaho and whitetails and turkey in Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois and a dozen more in between.
We have also been to Argentina for red stag, New Zealand three times, Canada several times for bear, South Africa multiple times, Mozambique for almost three weeks, and Tanzania for a month. When I say we put gear, clothes, and our equipment to the test- I mean it. These pieces that I have listed below are my staples for the majority of the hunting we do and they have all withstood multiple seasons, multiple trips, and are extremely high quality. Obviously a packing list for Alaska looks much different than a packing list for Tanzania but this list makes up 90% of my wardrobe when we are hunting!
As a side note- a lot of my pieces are several years old. I prefer to spend the money upfront and have something that is going to last me several seasons (some pieces I’ve had since 2018). The hand warmer, for example, may not be the EXACT one I have as it’s almost six years old but it is one that I would still recommend. I don’t want anyone thinking I buy all of this stuff brand new each year- I don’t! I hardly buy anything new anymore! My recommendation, if hunting is something you want to do for the long haul, invest in high quality pieces upfront. They will make your hunting experience more enjoyable!
I would also like to mention that a few brands listed below JUST started coming out with women’s gear. I am not loyal to one camo company. Don’t be afraid to piece things together from different companies. Some do REALLY well with thermals and base layers while others do between with jackets. Also, ladies, the hunting industry is BEHIND on flattering items for us. I suggest not limiting yourself to strictly hunting companies. The products and pieces I have listed below are extremely flattering but some come from the tactical space, some come from skiing and snowboarding, and some coming from the hiking industry! Get creative! Plus- they are usually cuter anyways!
